Don’t forget to test your knowledge of all things Halloween with my FREE Halloween Science Quiz too!
Halloween Party Decorations
First up, why not decorate your room with Halloween themed lava lamps. These can be themed as pumpkins or ghosts or anything else that takes your fancy!
Rainy Day Mum has some brilliant ghost decorations.
Or how about some pipecleaner pumpkins?
Make a Halloween garland like Tinkerlab. You could experiment with different materials to see which moves the least/most in the wind.
If you don’t fancy carving a pumpkin this yarn wrapped pumpkin from The Imagination Tree is lovely.
Decorate your room with some fake blood and learn about coagulation at the same time.
We love these spider web paper plate decorations from Creative Family Fun. Another idea is to make the web sticky and throw spiders at it.
Halloween Party Food
Serve up jelly scabs for dessert.
Red blood cell cupcakes are another dessert idea!
Make a Halloween gingerbread house, and test to see which sticky substance ( liquid glucose, icing sugar or royal icing ) sticks it together the best.
We love these witchy cauldron cakes from Rainy Day Mum too.
Halloween Party Games
Try one of my easy Halloween STEM Challenges. Build Halloween candy towers, blow up a pumpkin balloon with baking soda, make a creepy density jar or make spooky Halloween melting hands.
Use Halloween coloured juices and investigate which mixture makes the best bubbles!
How about a slimy game of what’s in the pumpkin?
These shooting ghosts are brilliant from Growing a Jewelled Rose.
Have a game to see who can construct a model brain the fastest. Try to name the component parts.
Make a Halloween railroad like Play Trains.
Make skeleton pictures using Q-tips like Mama Smiles.
Scare your friends with this spooky sounds device. If you use different sized and shaped cups the sound should change.
Halloween Messy Play and Potions
Last year I put together 10 brilliant witchy potion recipes. There’s a gloopy chia seed slime, fizzy baking soda potions and even a magical colour changing potion! Which will you try first?
