Friendly Spark Monster

The local Sparks do a thing about "the Friendly Spark Monster" just before Halloween each year. The Spark Guider brings in a bag of unrelated household items - like a hairbrush, a can opener, a Barbie doll shoe, etc., enough for a least one per Spark. Each girl reaches into the bag blind & pulls out an item. She then has to tell something about the monster that relates to the item... "He used the hairbrush to brush the fur on his teeth" "He uses the Barbie shoe because he has very small feet..". the whole thing is collected up & made into a book for the girls...
