Halloween Science Projects

1. Get ready for Fizzing Eyeballs! A bit of science fun wrapped up in a creepy eyeball activity.

2. Watch out! That slime is creeping! This black slime is perfect for Halloween and when you put magnets over it you can make it move!  NOTE:  You are going to need some of this powder and you should be prepared to get messy. Magnetic Slime.

3. Easy salt and water Halloween science experiment that older boys will like as well. They are frozen hands with eyes, bugs, and other Halloween items in them.

4. Exploding Ghost Peeps looks too good to pass up. A tad messy but the reaction is a lot of fun. My tip is to put paper towel on a dish and put those under your experiment before trying it to make clean up easy.

5. These ghost rockets fly up pretty far and they are really easy to do (outside activity!)

6. Learn a bit about what makes things glow in the dark with this spooky looking centipede bottle.

7. Grab some Frankenworms (gummy worms) and make them move!

8. Oh my, this is a neat experiment. Tea Bag Ghosts. Honestly, if you have not tried it you really should. Wait until you see what happens when you set it on fire (oh yeah, I forgot to mention there is fire involved!) This is a favorite Halloween science activity!
