We have 15 not-so-scary but super FUN Halloween science projects for you to try! Experiment away either at home or in class.
Halloween Science Projects
The activities pictured above are listed below from top to bottom, left to right:
1 – For a fun Halloween twist on a classic simple science experiment, try Ghost volcanoes from FSPDT.
2- The classic salt and ice experiment gets a Halloween twist with this melting hands experiment from Happy Hooligans.
3- Science Kiddo shows uses yeast in a witches’ brew Halloween experiment — and the reaction inflates a balloon!
4- Layer liquids with a density experiment (Halloween style!) from Science Sparks.
5- Using the baking soda and vinegar reaction, try making Halloween surprise eruptions from Simple Fun For Kids.
6- Coffee Cups & Crayons gives you some Candy Corn Science experiments – along with a candy corn experiment printable your little ones can use to record their observations.
7- Give these Mad Science Jars a try! Growing a Jeweled Rose has a fun glow in the dark water idea to try out in this one!
8- Learn how to create jumping ghosts — using static electicity! Science Sparks shows you how.
9- Make candy pumpkins fly with this DIY pumpkin catapult from Playdough to Plato!
10- Make fizzing pumpkins! Another classic baking soda + vinegar experiment. It’s fun seeing how many different ways you can play with the same ingredients. Plus, I love the idea of using these as favors!
11- Give the kids a simple science challenge — can they sink the (pumpkin shaped!) marshmallow? Lemon Lime Adventures gives you the set up for this project.
12- Is anything more fun than bubbles? Kids will have fun with bubble science — and these ghostly bubbles from Little Bins for Little Hands
13- Creating ghost bubbles looks super cool. The Gift of Curiosity shows how to do it. The experiment uses dry ice and needs to have an adult do most of the set up, but the coolness factor is huge!
14- We love making Halloween slime! We add googly eyes, but try spider rings, bats, shiny foil pumpkins, even pumpkin seeds.
15 – You’ve probably made oobleck before– but how about giving glowing oobleck a try!
