“Halloween Pumpkin” experiment

How to make a smoking pumpkin

Hal­loween is com­ing! Why not make a de­mon­ic smok­ing pump­kin and scare the neigh­bors?

Reagents and equip­ment:

  • pump­kin;
  • alu­minum can;
  • glyc­erin;
  • scis­sors;
  • can­dles.

Step-by-step in­struc­tions

Cut out a hold­er from the alu­minum can with scis­sors. Place a can­dle in the Hal­loween pump­kin, and put the alu­minum hold­er on top. Pour glyc­erin into the alu­minum hold­er and put the lid on the pump­kin.

Pro­cess­es de­scrip­tion

When heat­ed, the glyc­erin starts to evap­o­rate. Af­ter a while, glyc­erin smoke will start to pour out of the eyes and mouth of the pump­kin.
