Halloween Countdown: It's A Blast!

I'm REALLY hopeful that the weather isn't too bad today because my teacher found us the coolest science project in celebration of spooktacular October.


Okay, to be fair, my mom found this activity last year on Pinterest, and my sister and I definitely had a blast setting them off, but I'm excited to try them out with my classmates.

Sure, I'll have the inside scoop, but that just means I'll be able to help my friends out, right?

What are ghost rockets? I'm so glad you asked. Check these out!

Awesome, right?

They're easy too! All you need is an empty film canister (or something about the same size), corn starch, a black Sharpie, Alka Seltzer, and a stir stick.

Want to make your own? Good. Start by drawing ghost faces on your canister.

Once the ghost face is dry, add some corn starch to each, and then fill about ⅓ of the way with water. Stir it up.

Take a piece of Alka Seltzer and break it into three or four pieces. Drop a piece into the canister, put the lid on, and flip it upside down. Set it on the ground and stand back!

I am so excited to see these ghost rockets go flying—again! Click here to see the original Pinterest post with full directions.

Gotta jet! Have a spooktacular day!
