Two Halloween and Fall STEM Activities for Kids 

Halloween is my son’s second favorite time of the year. He likes to dress up and go to all the fall festivals in our area.

We love to try various STEM projects at home. Every year we combine STEM and Halloween/Fall activities to make this time of year more festive.

Today we have two Halloween/Fall STEM Activities for you. They are called Magic Potion and the Vomiting Pumpkin.

Both of these activities involve chemical reactions.

Below is a video showing you step-by-step how to do both science experiments.

How To Make Ice Balloons | Fun Ice Breaking Activity for Kids

I am excited about today’s activity because it involves melting a big ball of ice. When my son first heard about this science project, he was excited to get started. To make the activity more interesting, he trapped his PJ Masks figurine set in the ice. We want to share it with you. Today we will show you how to make ice balloons with your favorite toys.

The following is needed for this activity…
Plastic Container

This project includes fun pretend play with PJ Masks Figure Set. The PJ Masks figures are trapped in ice globes. It is Scientist Corban’s job to melt the ice to rescue Cat Boy, Owlette, and Gekko. Kids will love this ice breaking and melting activity.  Children will learn how to make ice melt fast. This is a fun science experiment for preschoolers, kindergarten, and up.

Glow In The Dark Slime| Easy Monster Slime for Halloween

Halloween is almost here! My son, Cory, is excited because he likes to dress up and go trick or treating. He also likes to do spooky science experiments and art projects. This year, his friend asked how to make basic slime. This request sparked a new idea which is making Glow in the Dark Slime.

Cory took this idea a step forward and decided to make a Glow in the Dark Monster Slime. This project is so fun and easy to do. You only need two ingredients to make the Glow in the Dark Slime which are glue and slime activator. You may also use food coloring, but this is optional.

After making the slime, Cory played with it for a while. He stretched, pressed, kneaded, and balled it up. Then he decided to make the slime into a monster. We used pipe cleaners and googly eyes for this step.

Halloween Activity for Kindergarten – Magic Potion Recipe for Kids

The fall season is here but Halloween is right around the corner. Therefore, I wanted to do an activity with my son that connects with the season. We decided to do a Magic Potion Recipe that would incorporate science.

We used the classic chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar. However, we added an element of surprise by adding some color to our magic potion. We found a way to hide the color so a person could not see it until the baking soda and vinegar reacted with one another.

This Magic Potion activity reminded me of something a magician or wizard would do in a fairy tale story. Once the potion came together, my son was happy with the results. I think your child will have the same reaction if they did the experiment as well.

The results were a colorful mini explosion that overflowed out of the glass jar. Another benefit in doing this experiment is that you can explain the science behind the mini explosion.

Why it works?

  • As the baking soda mixes with the vinegar, it creates bubbles of carbon dioxide gas.
  • The mixture creates a lot of gas, which results in the chemical reaction.

Below are the materials we used...

Baking Soda


Aluminum Tray

Food Coloring
