Identify this monster tale?

I'm trying to track down something I remembered watching on television a long time ago. The only thing I can really remember is the climax of the story, which I vaguely recall was about these parents or caretakers (babysitters, perhaps) telling two young children about some kind of bogeyman. At the end, a giant arm reaches through the front door and grabs them while the children watch. I have a feeling it could have been an episode of an Outer Limits type show, or maybe a Trilogy of Terror type thing.

What do kids do for fun?

A group of college students and I are volunteering at a local children's hospital for a day to entertain the kids there but we are at a loss for what to do. Can you suggest any crafts or activities that we can do with the kids? There will be kids of many age groups and we plan to split them up and do different activities for each. We want these activities to be fun for the kids so they don't have to be educational.

Books that will amuse a bunch of second graders?

Can you suggest some books that will make a bunch of second graders laugh? I am scheduled as "Surprise Reader" in my son's second grade class this week, and I need some new (to me) humorous and/or weird picture books to read to the class. Previously William Steig and David Greenberg ("Slugs", "Snakes", and "Bugs") have gone over well, but I need some new material! Thanks!

What is this children's book with living mop?

A friend of mine read a children's paperback book in the 1960's that featured two kids and a mop that comes to life ( or maybe is alive through the course of the whole book ). The kids and the mops interact (play?). I don't know any more about the book but I'm hoping to identify it and find a paperback copy to give as a birthday gift. If anyone out there knows what this book is or might be I would very much appreciate it. Thanks! - Dave
