Ghost Activities for Kids

Halloween Science Experiment

Create your ghosts by cutting small ghosts out of the tissue paper (like the kind you add to gifts). If you don’t have any tissue paper on hand you can use this with Kleenex, just make sure you separate and only use one ply if you have 2-ply tissues in your house.

Draw on eyes using a black marker.

Slowly pull the balloon up so that the ghosts are standing up, but not touching anything.

HINT: The easiest way to make the ghost rise without it sticking to the balloon is to tape the very tip of the bottom of the ghost to a table.

So how does this work? Well, when you rub the balloon on your hair, invisible electrons (with a negative charge) build up on the surface of the balloon. These electrons have the power to pull very light objects like a balloon (who have a positive charge) toward them. This pull of oppsite charged electrons causes the ghost to move with the tensions.
