Need even MORE science experiments for your Halloween Party? Check out these posts from the Mad Scientist Party: the first 5 experiments & the last 5 experiments. Oh, and here is a fake blood recipe from Steve Spangler–gory but cool.

Last year I threw a mixed-up mystery dinner for some of the teenagers at my church. It was a lot of fun. Take a peak, in case you missed it. Unfortunately I took all of the photos, that’s why they’re so scary. But I made some fun frozen gummy worm ice cubes, in case you need one more party idea.

If you would like to make witch cupcakes, you can look at the ones we made for the Wizard of Oz Party.

I like to give out “healthier” candy to the trick-or-treaters for Halloween. I know, my husband assures me every year that we’re going to get egged (although we never have). And sometimes he buys regular candy to go along with what I’ve bought. But I like to have a clear conscience. This year I’m handing out all natural chewing gum from Glee.

And every year my four sweet kiddos leave out all of their trick-or-treating candy for the Great Pumpkin to take on Halloween night. He leaves them a gift in return. You can read my post about it from last year.

Also, I need to make a black cat tail for my daughter’s costume this year. I’m going to use this tiger tail tutorial.

  2. I will never, for the life of me, understand why Halloween and candy have become so evil. Halloween is for fun and if your kids never get candy maybe one week a year you might let them indulge. If my mother had offered a gift for my candy I probably would have taken my pillowcase full of candy and runaway. Quit reading so many “parenting” books and quit listening to others who think they know the answers to everything. Childhood is meant to be fun. Let it be so. It won’t be long before they’re adults. By the way, I never developed rotten teeth nor did I become a Satan worshiper of witch. Moderation is an adult’s responsibility in raising children. Maybe you could trade your kids’ candy for broccoli and carrots. Loosen up!

  3. What cute ideas. I’m going to freeze gummy worms in ice cubes this year. I usually do the ice hands in the punch so this will be a good twist.

    Thank you for posting all of your fun ideas and Mad Scientist party ideas. We at Steve Spangler Science love seeing Steve’s experiments in action. I will share your photos and ideas with our staff.
