Halloween is in just a few days and I don’t know about you, but I am SUPER excited! My house is all decked out in spooky decorations and I can’t wait to pass out candy to costume adorned children on Saturday. We got our first dose of Halloween fun when Lil Man and I went trick-or-treating with my husband’s family yesterday! Halloween is such a fun time of year and there are so many great ways that your family can enjoy spending time together.
You could do some DIY Spooky Science Experiments together as a family. I’ve included a printable below with complete directions on how to do each of the following fun experiments for Halloween:
- Glow-in-the-dark Mad Scientist Jars
- Creepy Slime
- Bubbling Potion
- Ghost Writing
- The Ghostly Glove
