Flying Ghosts: The Spooky Science Experiment Your Kids Will Love

Oct 12, 2023 ● By The Hood Magazine
The flying ghost experiment is one of our favorite things to do during the Halloween season. It is so easy, yet packs such a punch the kids will be asking to do it over and over again!

All you need is some tea bags (any kind), marker and a lighter.

Cut the tea bags to create a cylinder. Empty the tea leaves out and discard. Draw on a ghost face and stand up on a plate.

Light the top of the tea and bag and watch what happens! It's just spooky enough to create a magical moment with the kids.

Of course, it goes without saying, this experiment does involve fire and should ONLY be done with supervising adults. 

For a full tutorial we enlisted some help, check out the video below!
