Spooky Halloween Science
Discover the shocking science of static electricity with 3 spooky experiments! Raise paper ghosts from the grave with a static-charged wand. Make a mini jack-o’-lantern spark and flash with the help of a balloon. Send eyeballs rolling across a charged sheet and make them scoot away from your hand — all without actually touching them. Then keep the fun and learning going with more electrifying experiments you can conduct using materials from home!

From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“There were originally only two projects in this crate! In an early version of the dancing ghost graveyard, we had a flashing light bulb feature that our testers loved. They kept wanting to get a better look at it, and one kid thought the light would look spooky in a jack-o’lantern. So we took this brilliant idea and made a whole new pumpkin project!”
