Ghosts appear and disappear like magic... or is it science. In this kit you'll receive dehydrated ghost eggs that reappear when you simply add water. Ghost eggs are invisible to the eyes but you can feel them touching your skin when you dip your hand into the jar... if you dare. By adding just a few drops of glowing dye to the water, the ghosts reveal their whereabouts. Come to think of it, are they ghost eggs or alien marbles? No ghost science exploration would be complete without vanishing ghost poop. That's right, you'll make pieces of ghost poop disappear (that's why ghosts make for great pets).
This kit is guaranteed to be a smash hit any time of the year. Use the ghost theme to explore the science of optics, index of refraction and glow-in-the-dark fun. Your friends will be amazed when they drop ghost eggs into water and watch them vanish like magic. Easy and simple set-up and clean up.

Great "magic science"! review by Beverly on 2/26/2015
I used this as part of my daughter's "magical" 11th birthday party. We had one cup with the marbles covered in water, which just looks like a cup of water, and had people stick their fingers in and be surprised to find something invisible in there. We had another cup with just the marbles in it, and a message underneath the cup that said "Magic is real!" You can't read the message when just the marbles are there, but when you then fill the cup with water, the message magically appears. Even the parents enjoyed this. We didn't even get around to making the "ghost poop" disappear, but that would have been good, too. Also, it didn't say so, but it included a packet of 12 fizzing color tablets. I had also ordered 100 of the tablets, which we called "dragon pills", and used as ingredients in the potions the kids made. We also used the glow liquid as an ingredient, and the instructions indicated that if the potion was made properly, it would glow in the black light. This all contributed to a great party! (The marbles are really cool to just play with, too. Surprise--they bounce!)
Ghost eggs were a huge hit review by Sheryl Spears on 5/17/2014
I've been meaning to write a review about this kit all year. It was definitely the hit this year! My students absolutely loved the ghost eggs. I teach fifth grade and while doing a memory book to capture their fifth grade year this was mentioned as one of their favorite activities of the year. It was so fun to hear that their favorite activity of the year was ghost eggs! Awesome fun that they remember all year long and hopefully for the rest of their lives! Thanks so much! Hope to do this during my summer camp!
Great set up! review by Amanda on 4/3/2013
Students love watching the "ghost eggs" appear and disappear! Then adding in the glow is the perfect touch!
Love that the kit comes with colored Steve Spangler instruction pages!
