I have bugs and bits and bobs galore for Halloween and have been running out of creative places to put them, so this morning I made these:

Halloween decorations

These specimen jars literally took 2 minutes to make. 

What you need:

  • jars
  • water
  • food color
  • bugs or body parts

How to make:

  • Fill the jar about 3/4 with water. 
  • Add a couple of drops of food  color
  • Pop in your 'specimen'
  • Done!

It would be fun to make these with Jello instead of the water and food coloring

Made this for my son’s Zombie Themed Birday Party (he’s 9) I used jello, gummy mice, rats, and worms….Adults not so thrilled about trying them….15 8&9 year old boys couldn’t get enough…Thanks for the great idea
