Fun with Dry Ice

We were all sick over Halloween and because of that we didn’t go Trick or Treating.  No dressing up.  No candy.  We didn’t even watch a scary movie.  We watched “Little House on the Prairie”!  (Which we just adore, by the way.)

My friend, Jennifer, and her kids were sick as well.  So, we decided to have a belated Halloween celebration as soon as we were all feeling better.  By the time we could work it into our schedules it was the end of November, but that didn’t stop us.  We had a fabulous Halloween party.  The kids dressed up, Jen brought some icky but delicious food, and I got some dry ice for us to play with. 

I had seen Steve Spangler (a science teacher turned TV demonstrater) on ashow talking about and demonstrating Boo Bubbles.  These are special bubbles because they’re made with dry ice.  We had a lot of fun.  And the best part is that it counted (in my books anyway) as a school lesson.  Science…check!

Check out the video of us having fun with dry ice:

    That looks so fun. I love that you had Halloween at the end of November. Maybe I should have my usual Christmas party at the end of February since we didn’t have one this year. :o)
