Planning a Halloween party this year and need some spooky activities to do? Or just looking for some light-hearted Halloween science experiments to do with the kids? I’ve got one to add to your list.
We call this witches’ brew at our house. You’ll create a sticky, brown, bubbly potion that will magically inflate a balloon. Draw a pumpkin or a bat on the balloon for added Halloween science fun!
Witches’ Brew Science Experiment

To make our witches’ brew we headed to the kitchen to gather the following ingredients:
- 2 Tbsp dried yeast
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp lukewarm water
- Glass bottle
- Bowl half-full of lukewarm water
- Party balloon
We mixed yeast, sugar, and water together in the bottle. To keep the mixture warm we set the bottle in the bowl of warm water.
