  • I was working in the lab, late one night, when my eyes beheld an eerie sight. This week is the last before All Hallows Eve. If you are looking for a different way to celebrate this year, try your hand at the following crafts!
    • Try this tried and true technique, wax resist! The process is simple. Draw your Halloween themed picture with crayon – be it a haunted house, scary cemetery, or just the ambience of that special night. Once complete, paint over it with watercolor. The was resists the paint, and pops out. Hint, hint…now’s the time to give that unused white crayon a spin 🙂 
    • Popsicle Stick Halloween Monster Truck – make it then go do donuts in the nearest graveyard. Dare ya!
    • This activity’s theme song is “The Monster Mash.” Try this recipe to make Mash Potato Play Dough!
