will have some ‘official’ ones with our logo for sale at cost if you are interested in buying one – prices to be determined on quantity);
- Your bike, or even better, a trike, and load up with lights, bells and horns;
- Install a simulated milk crate or basket on the handlebars of the bike.
- Locate a suitable ET doll, full color print-out, head or other facsimile, at least 12 inches high – the bigger the better! (Look in junk stores, Amazon, eBay, Craigslist, or make one using Pinterest, and check your attic!)
- Load the E.T. into that milk crate and cover it with a white blanket/large towel just like the movie;
