Halloween Decorations: Make Ghouly Hands!

Fourth Grade Holidays Activities: Halloween Decorations: Make Ghouly Hands!

What You Need:

  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Rubber gloves (medical gloves work well)
  • Glass jars with wide mouths (such as canning jars)

What You Do:

  1. Pour 3 tablespoons of vinegar into each canning jar.
  2. Take out one glove for each jar. Add 2 teaspoons of baking soda to the inside of each of the gloves and then carefully shake each glove, so the powder goes into the fingertip sections.
  3. Slide one glove over the lip of each glass, holding it sideways so the powder doesn't fall into the jar. Pull it tight around the lip to make sure it's a snug fit.
  4. It's showtime! When everyone has a good view, grab each glove by its fingertips and pull it upright, so the baking powder falls into the jar. You might have to shake the gloves gently to help.

Now watch as the gloves grow from limp to live!
