Halloween is the best time of year to do experiments! There are so many to try but Scientista rounded up some top favorites, which make great decorations too!
This one comes from a pretty cool website with all kinds of interesting scientific DIY experiments! The key ingredient in this one is tonic water. Tonic water glows under blacklight! So, all you need is a glass of tonic water and a blacklight, and presto! you have a glow-in-the-dark drink. It’s an easy and fun beverage to add to your next Halloween party! You can also make jell-o with tonic water, if you’d rather have fluorescent jell-o!
When I was younger, slime was the absolute best! It wasn’t quite liquid, it wasn’t quite solid, and you could play with it in the basement! So, if you, or your kids (or just some kids you know!) like slime, a great way to make it is by mixing glue and powdered borax by following the directions on the website. You’ll have slime monster children running around the house in no time!
Here’s an alternative to traditional jack-o’-lantern! You can mix as many colors as you like and experiment with result of mixing primary and secondary colors. While it can be a little messy to drip paint a pumpkin, it is bound to be fun for the kids, an easy time for adults in charge, and a great way to have fun painting pumpkins!
I love watching the vinegar and baking soda reaction! This project just adds a lot more fun to that reaction, by combining it with brain surgery. All you need apart from the vinegar and baking soda, is a brain jell-o mould. This one is on the top of my list to try this Halloween… and again, it makes a great addition to any Halloween party.
