Apple and The Worm
The first fun and scary Halloween physical science project is called the apple and the worm. Buy red or green apples and some brown lunch bags. Place two apples per brown lunch bag (it does not matter which color) and add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 3 tablespoons of flour, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 5 tablespoons of powder sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Take out of oven and let sit for four hours. Open up the bag and cut open the apple and you there is a sugar worm, which is edible. You can eat the apples as well.
The second fun and scary Halloween physical science project is called the grimacing pumpkin. Buy several small pumpkins and some aluminum foil. Take several 6 x 18 sheets of aluminum foil and sit the pumpkin on top after cutting it open and scrapping out the seeds and cleaning it out with warm ginger ale and water. Add 1/2 cup of walnuts, 3 cups of powder sugar, and 2 cups of peaches. Place the top back on the pumpkin, wrap in aluminum foil and put on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes for 45 minutes. Take out and let sit overnight. The next day underwrap in horror, the pumpkin is grimacing. Open up the top and eat, every time you do so the pumpkin grimace changes.
Screaming Halloween Mask
The third fun and scary Halloween physical science project is called the screaming Halloween mask. Buy a couple of Halloween masks at the dollar store as well as glue, paste and a cheap paint kit. Take a mask and spread glue and then paste all over it. Let it sit for 3 hours. Then paint the mask in orange, blue and green colors, no matter what the Halloween mask looks like its screaming. You can set it out in your front yard for Halloween decoration.
The Wriggling Glove
The fourth fun and scary Halloween physical science project is called the wriggling glove. Buy a box of vinyl gloves and lime koolaid. Soak 4 pairs of vinyl gloves in about 3 cups of Kool Aid (without the sugar). Set on newspapers laid out on a table, and let dry for 2 hours. Afterwards sprinkle with 4 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Let it rest overnight. In the morning the gloves will be moving. How? It is a physical science trick.
