Bubbles are cool and bubbles filled with fog are even cooler! Steve Spangler created Boo Bubbles as an easy and safe way for parents and teachers to explore the science of dry ice with fog-filled bubbles.
Whether you're whipping up something spooky for Halloween or crafting an unforgettable lesson about the states of matter, DRY ICE experiments create an unforgettable learning experience. Featured on The Ellen Show!
It's easy to set-up your own mad scientist laboratory filled with bubbling test tube potions, graduated cylinders filled with glowing liquids, pickled body parts, ghost eggs and more. Perfect for any Halloween party.
Everything you need to make slime just the way you like it with bugs, eyeballs, gooey globs, slippery chunks, spider eggs and more. Makes 1 gallon of slime with shaker cups for the perfect, take-home party favor.

All of us at the Spangler Labs enjoy seeing twists on our experiments as well as new activities and science lessons that come out of the parent blogging [...]

Last Friday, I shared my 7-year-old daughter's Ultimate Harry Potter party and how we created some unique and creative decorations out of science supplies. This was a birthday party, but it can easily be tweaked for a Halloween Harry Potter party or plain old Mad Scientist party.
For the party, I set up different classes and activities to [...]
This contest has ended. Thank you for entering. Congratulations to our winner, Melitsa @playactivities!
You'll be the hit of the party if you win 25 gallons of Spangler Slime - that's 95 liters for those mad scientists who love the metric system. This isn't some pre-made slime... no... it's Spangler's special PVA formulation for concocting the perfect batch of slime! If you're [...]
Halloween is Steve's favorite time of year and he believes it's not the same without a little ooey, gooey, spooky fun!
To make your Halloween super slimey, Steve is giving away 20 - 32 oz Slime Kits beginning Oct 1 through Oct 23, 2015. Five winners will be announced each Friday and will receive Steve's Green Slime Kit, originally formulated by Steve for Hollywood special [...]
You saw how tiny the dry polymer body parts were in my first post about dismembered body parts. Polymers absorb the liquid quickly, some more quickly than others, but all absorb pretty fast. Our dismembered polymer body parts, packed away since last October and dry as bones (body parts. bones. I crack myself up sometimes!) wasted no time in starting to [...]
This cute activity is perfect for a Halloween party or crafting afternoon. We used Color Changing UV Beads in these Pony Bead Critters that can hang from backpacks, zippers, lockers, classroom ceilings, party favor bags or wherever. They will even change color in the sunlight.
Here's step-by-step instructions on how to make a skull using UV Beads. We've also included links to other sites that [...]
The temperature is getting cooler and it's starting to get dark earlier. Leaves are changing on the trees and pumpkin flavored items are starting to arrive in the super markets. It's a great time to drink cider and shop for new science gear. (wink, wink) Yes, it's officially becoming fall!
What else do we enjoy during the fall? Oh yeah, that autumnal celebration with [...]
Thank you for joining us on The Spangler Effect Live this week for our last minute Halloween science demos and activities. During the two hours, Steve and Higginsworth shared a lot of fun, messy and loud experiments for spooky fun. If you missed the broadcasts, we have both available in this post. If you want more information on any of the [...]
Halloween is the perfect time to whip up a perfect batch of gooey slime or to amaze your friends with the coolest dry ice experiments. And maybe a few disembodied hands.
The response from our first live episode of The Spangler Effect was so great. we want you to join Steve and Higginsworth for one final live Halloween episode. Join the fun, LIVE, on [...]
There is a science to making the most realistic-looking blood. Put on your scientist safety glasses and get ready for a little experimentation.
Most of the fake blood recipes below require only a few ingredients, but don't get caught up in the exact measurements. It's all about adding a little of this and a little of that until you get the right [...]
