Halloween experiments are the best way to bring in the holidays with a little bit of education for the kids!! I absolutely love to watch my kids eyes when they see experiments. These experiments are simple and cheap to do!
It is the well known oobleck. I LOVEE oobleck…I taught science for one year and this was always my favorite. The mixture is simple …only cornstarch and water unless you want to change the color with food coloring. The mixture hardens when you apply pressure and goes to goo when you don’t, so of course my kids LOVED it! Brooks kept staring at it, and he loved how it covered his hands.
-easy clean container
-2 cups of cornstarch
-1 cup of water
-eyes for halloween goo (optional)
2. Add the water. Here is the tricky part…I always let the water run down by picking up the container. You want the cornstarch to touch the water, but you do not want to overdo the water. If you see some dry spots, add a LITTLE water until it softens up.
3. I added the food coloring to the mixture, but you can always add it to the water instead.
4. We added eyeballs to give it a monster look. Plus it was fun to watch them sink in the goo.
Good ole baking soda and vinegar!! So very simple yet so very fascinating to kids..and I’ll admit it still fascinates me. 🙂 We glued eyeballs to the balloon to give it a ghost look.
What you need:
-eyeballs to make it into a ghost (optional)
1. First put some vinegar in your water bottle… not much …I used 1/4 cup. Then you add a teaspoon of baking soda into your balloon and attach the balloon to the water bottle. Make sure you do not hold up the balloon…just leave it hanging on the side until you are ready.
2. Lift the balloon so that the baking soda enters the bottle and watch the balloon blow up! It’s so cool!
