1. Open-Ended Potion Making
You don’t need much for potion making – just a few containers (fancy containers work best), food coloring, vinegar, baking soda, and imagination. My daughter went wild making potions of her choice.
2. Accessorize Your Potions
Adding Halloween accessories (think Dollar store!) will make your potions appropriately spooky. Little Bins for Little Hands packs a lot of Halloween science fun in this guest post for B-Inspired Mama
3. Make Spooky Eruptions
Good old vinegar and baking soda again, but Blog Me Mom upgraded a “spookiness factor” by adding themed containers and black tempera paint to her spooky Halloween eruptions.
4. A “Must Have” Halloween Potion
Growing a Jeweled Rose is a queen of glow play. The “magic ingredient” in most of her mixtures is glow water, which looks amazing but surprisingly easy to make.
Also from Growing a Jeweled Rose comes an extension of glow water – a mysterious goblin goop – perfect for Halloween!
6. Glow in the Dark Playdough
Regular play dough is too boring? Enchant your kids by this glow in the dark homemade playdough version from Sun Hats and Wellie Boots.
7. Make Use of Pumpkin Guts
Don’t throw out pumpkin guts! Make a pumpkin slime instead using this pumpkin slime recipe from Learn Play Imagine.
8. Pumpkin Oobleck
Another recipe for pumpkin guts comes from Inspiration Laboratories. This time they are mixed with water and cornstarch to make pleasantly smelling pumpkin oobleck.
9. Pumpkin Puffy Paint
There is something magical in microwaveable puffy paint. Fun At Home With Kids shares a perfect fall scented puffy paint recipe for pumpkin and apple puffy paints.
10. Gross Jell-O Play
Gross out your kids or party guests with this jelly messy play from Nurture Store.
11. Dry Ice Magic
Dry ice bubbles create a proper atmosphere and infinitely fascinating for scientists big and small. This activity from Not Just Cute is definitely on our list of things to do!
12. Fake Blood
Do not limit yourself to red paint! Steve Spangler Science offers proper fake blood recipes and discusses the differences between them. Let it flow!
13. GROSS EDIBLE BLOOD WORMS
This jell-o blood worms from The Idea Room will be a cool addition to a Halloween party or to sensory play. Don’t they look disgustingly real? I am still undecided whether I want to try them or not!
