8 WEEKS OF HALLOWEEN EXPERIMENTS
Have some spooky halloween fun with these 8 experiments!
Bubbles, smoke, and fog all add-up to make a unique hands-on Halloween experience.
We know that dry ice is incredibly fun to use in experiments – it’s because of the awesome fog you get when you combine the ultra-cold ice with warm water! Now if you could only figure out a way to actually grab and hold that elusive smoke in your hands. With the Dry Ice Smoking Bubbles experiment, you can! By creating smoke-filled bubbles that you can hold in your hands, you make dry ice a fun experience that everyone can really “grasp.”
Write with light, freeze your shadow, or even capture a picture!
Write with light and so much more with Glow-in-the-Dark Paper. Our team of after dark scientists know that when the lights go off, the glow in the dark fun begins… and they couldn’t stop experimenting with our Glow-in-the-Dark Paper. Even though we call it paper, these glow-in-the-dark sheets are actually, high-quality, super-durable vinyl, that will stick to just about anything and stay there forever.
Atomic Slime is perfect for Halloween demonstrations and parties.
Don’t worry about the explanation of how Slime works until you’ve made the perfect batch. Atomic Slime is formulated with a special coloring agent that fluoresces under black light. The eerie, greenish-yellow glow makes this slime irresistible.
This Spider Web STEM Challenge is an interactive, hands-on activity that has you plan, create, and test your spider web designs.
Collaborate as you create a spider web that can hold the most number of “flies” possible.
Clear, polymer-based water marbles that vanish like magic in a glass of water.
It looks like an ordinary glass of water, but hiding just below the surface of the water is an amazing collection of large, jelly-like marbles that become invisible when submerged in water. The Jelly Marbles become invisible due to an identical index of refraction with the liquid. In other words, they vanish like magic! As you’ll see, there’s more to this experiment than meets the eye.
Decorate for Halloween with these eerie glow in the dark pumpkins!
If you’re a fan of Spangler Science, you know that we love exploding pumpkins… but we’ve also found that glowing pumpkins can be just as fun! Just add Glow Powder to your Halloween pumpkins and you’ll get a spooky Halloween display without all the mess of carving.
