NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: A Halloween Science Experiment

With just a few items around your home, you can make ghosts "fly"!

What can you do with vinegar, baking soda, and a balloon? Something really cool - and festive - for Halloween!

During Nailed It Or Failed It on Friday, October 9th, 2020, we made ghosts "fly" with just a few simple items you can find around your home.

Supplies

Empty Water Bottle
1/2 Cup Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 White Balloon
Black Permanent Marker

Directions

Put the vinegar into the water bottle and the baking soda into the balloon. Attach the bottom of the balloon to the top of the water bottle and dump the contents into the water balloon. Watch as the vinegar and baking soda mix to inflate the balloon! Use the marker to draw a ghost face on the balloon. NAILED IT!

COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK

Let's stick with the Halloween theme and make something delicious - and gory: the Zombie Gore Guzzler! Don't worry - it only looks gory, it tastes just like strawberry lemonade:

Supplies

Lemonade
Pureed Strawberries
Vodka (Optional)

Directions

Fill your glass up about 3/4 of the way with lemonade. Using a spoon, scoop up some of the pureed strawberries and slowly lower the spoon into the bottom of your glass. Use another spoon to scrape off the strawberries to create a gory-looking drink that's perfect for Halloween!
