This participation style of story allows lots of scope for scary sound effects and exaggerated gestures.
The story-teller should sit in front of the colony and begin like this:

“Would you like to go on a witch hunt? Okay let’s go. Watch me and do all the things I do and repeat after me all the things I say. Ready? Here we go!”


“We’re..... going on a witch hunt. Everyone tiptoe. (Tiptoe fingers across hand.)

“Shhhhhh!” (Finger across mouth.)

“I can see a house....... a haunted house. We can’t go around it (stretch around). We can’t go under it (crouch down). We can’t go over it (stretch up). I guess we’ll have to go in it!” (Pretend to open a very creaky door.)

“Shhhhhh!” (Finger across mouth.)

“I see the stairs...... long, dark, steep stairs. We can’t go around them (stretch around). We can’t go under them (crouch down). We can’t go over them (stretch up). I guess we’ll have to climb them!” (Pretend to climb stairs; shade eyes and look around; continue tiptoeing.)

“I see a cobweb...... a great, big, slimy, cobweb (yechy noises). We can’t go around it (stretch around). We can’t go under it (crouch down). We can’t go over it (stretch up). I guess we’ll have to go through it!” (Wave hands to get through the cobweb; make faces and yechy noises; continue tiptoeing.)

“I see a room...... a huge, dark room. We can’t go around it (stretch around). We can’t go under it (crouch down). We can’t go over it (stretch up). I guess we’ll have to go through it!” (Open very, very creaky door; feel in front to find the way in the dark.)

“Whheww! It sure is dark in here. I feel something! (Go through the motions of feeling.) It’s big! It has a crooked nose! It has a pointed hat! It has stringy hair! I think it’s a witch!!!”

“It IS a witch!!”

“Lets get out of here fast! (Slap knees to make a running sound.) Open door (creaky sound); through the cobweb (wave hands); down the stairs (slap knees); out of the house.” (Continue to slap knees.)

“Whhhew!” (Wipe brow)

“Did everyone get home?” “Want to go again?”
