Are you ready for some spooky science? These projects and experiments are just right for Halloween. Make your holiday educational as well as fun!

  • Glowing Ink can be used to write eerie glowing messages.


  • Make Colored Fire - Fire is fun, but colored fire can be spooky. Try adding a bit of color to your jack-o-lantern flame.


  • Make a Fizzy Potion - Halloween drinks can bubble and fizz like something a mad scientist might drink.


  • Dry Ice Crystal Ball - All you need is dry ice and bubble solution to create an eerie, long-lasting bubble that resembles a cloudy crystal ball.


  • Halloween Reaction - This clock reaction makes a spectacular Halloween demonstration since the colors change from orange to black. This demo is for the chemistry lab rather than home.


  • Smoke Bomb Jack-o-Lantern - Lighting a homemade smoke bomb inside of a jack-o-lantern is a lot of fun, plus it produces a ton of smoke.


  • Glowing Ice Crystal Ball - This glowing crystal ball is the perfect addition to any Halloween punchbowl, especially if you add a little dry ice, too.
