Bats aren’t used enough, probably because they’re small. They can be quite scary though, especially when kids don’t see the black flying rats in the dark. So, decorate a place they will walk by, but not see very well to get jumps throughout the night.
Buy a skeleton, but rather than hanging it up, have some parts stick out of a mound of dirt either on the ground (maybe in a fresh grave) or in a wheelbarrow near the front porch. It will really scare kids if they happen to bump into it when they are getting candy.
