Science Halloween Party – Tips and How-Tos
How to make your Halloween party unforgettable
Halloween is coming right up, and it’s about time to think about how to celebrate the spookiest night of the year! Vampires, zombies, and witches are the ultimate classics, but after so many years this old horror movie vibe might feel a bit tired… And tired is anything but fun.
How about a fantabulous science party where you can both have fun and learn something new? Our team has a few ideas you can use to spice up your Halloween party with a pinch of chemistry!
For a sciency Halloween, choose the signature look of a famous scientist, or perhaps something original like a Nobel Prize or an atom.
The best science costumes are the ones actually MADE with science – and we’ve got a winning formula for you! Make any print you like using chemistry!
MEL Chemistry’s “Cyanotype” kit will help you do this at home. No need to worry about where to get citric acid or iron(III) ammonium sulfate – everything’s included in the kit and tested for safety.
Serve some snacks…
How about making bizarre snacks and drinks to astonish your guests?
Let’s go with a completely healthy and safe way to give food an unnatural hue without changing its taste. Even better, it’s all-natural – it can be found in red cabbage. Here is a way to make eggs with it; their spooky green shade is perfect for a Halloween spread!
This isn’t the only way to alter your food’s appearance. Few think of a fruity taste when eating caviar, or maybe spaghetti that looks as if it were boiled in a pot of blood! And even fewer expect spooky slime to actually taste good.
And don’t forget the decorations – lemons for your cocktails will look perfectly scientific with some electrodes on them. You can actually make a working lemon battery with the Chemistry and Electricity set from the MEL Chemistry subscription!
Decorate your place…
Snacks and drinks are great and all, but Halloween without decorations is too much like an ordinary party. But there’s no need to buy a bunch of stuff you’ll only use once a year – you can craft plenty of impressive adornments yourself using chemistry and physics. And you can always invite your guests to drop by early and lend you a hand – it’s tons of fun!
Pumpkins are the centerpieces of Halloween and the whole of October, and we know several ways to portray good old Jack-O-Lanterns in a new light. Even green – if you dare.
Muted, cozy lighting is a must-have as well. Of course, you can just switch on a dim bulb, but there are much more alluring options. Create chemical nebulae or glowing minerals with the MEL “Chemistry and light” set.
Sure enough, creativity is the best tool in your arsenal; all you’ll need is suitable supplies. Believe it or not, the best option here is the material we use to fix broken limbs – plaster of Paris. Just combine it with gauze and construct almost any figure you want – ghosts are our favorite!
Plaster crafts are easy to make with the “Chemistry of materials” set! We opted for penguins, but the sky’s the limit! Play and learn science at the same time!
And throw your party!
Now, when everything else is ready or in progress, the last and most important element is in the forefront – activities for the guests! You want them to be both spooky and scientific, and also fun for both adults and kids. We’ve got you covered! The MEL Chemistry subscription includes a bunch of sets that will rock your sciency night. Start with “Chemistry of monsters” and observe as a black snake is born from the flames!
Don’t worry, these monsters won’t bite. MEL Chemistry sets are thoroughly tested and are certified for safety.
Now it’s time for some creative fun. The “Chemistry of spies” set will allow your guests to leave secret messages for one another – who knows, maybe you’ll help someone make friends this way!
Don’t let anyone leave your party without a memorable gift! Making spooky Halloween keychains is easy with the “Etching and Plating” set. You can make any Halloween shape you like – ghosts, bugs, and bats will remind your friends about the spookalicious night you spent together for years to come!
Order your MEL Chemistry subscription right now so the first kit arrives in time for Halloween! And hey, here’s an offer for you – if you order a year-long subscription, you’ll pay for just 9 months instead of 12!
Is it possible to turn a predictable party into something where you can learn something new? Sure thing! Prep your Halloween celebration in advance using our tips and kits, and throw the best party in the neighborhood!
