    McGyver might be able to do this if he could see inside your house, but we can't even see what country you live in.

    Suggestion 1:

    1 pair of leather sole shoes
    1 carpet
    1 door knob
    1 low humidity enviroment

    Put on shoes. Drag feet on carpet. Touch door knob.

    Suggestion 2:

    Rubber party balloons, inflated
    1 wool sweater
    1 low humidity environment
    1 birthday cake with candles

    Rub inflated party balloon on sweater. Stick charged balloon to wall.
    Repeat.

    Get cake. Light candles. Sing Happy Birthday. Make a wish. Blow out candles. Eat cake.

    I remember when I was a child living up north, I had a pair of woolen pajamas. My grandma had the very expensive high thread-count linen sheets. In the winter, I'd put my head under the sheets and rub the pajamas against them. Made a fantastic light show.

    I used to call them fireworks. That was before I knew what fireworks under the sheets *really* were!

    I'm just hoping he has a piece of bubble gum, 2 toothpicks, and a cotton ball in his house. :D
