Kids Use Makeshift Ouija Boards in Viral Twitter Game

This weekend's viral Twitter challenge has more than a few moms worried, as kids use homemade ouija boards to contact a Mexican demon by the name of Charlie.

To participate in the #CharlieCharlieChallenge, kids must first create a makeshift ouija board from a piece of paper by drawing a cross in the center of it and writing the words "yes" and "no" in the empty spaces so "Charlie" will have options to answer their questions.

Next they place two pencils on the cross and ask out loud, "Charlie, Charlie: Are you here?" If Charlie is present, kids say he will move the pencil to point to "yes" on the paper.

Videos of the #CharlieCharlieChallenge have been a hit on Twitter, Instagram and Vine showing kids taking on the challenge and running out of the room in fear when they see their pencils move on their own.

If you do decide to play with Charlie, you must ask him to leave—or, allegedly, he and his friends will linger since you have opened the door from their world to ours.

Is Charlie the demon hiding in your closet? You better go ask your kids.
