Make a Spooky “Smoking” Pumpkin
Dry ice is dangerous and should only be handled by an adult. If touched, it can cause burns. If enclosed in an air-tight container, it can also cause the container to pop open unexpectedly. Always keep children out of reach of the dry ice, always use tongs or thick leather gloves when moving the dry ice, always store it in a container with ventilation, and never attempt to chop or break it in a way that bits could fly up into someone’s face or eyes.
Place a chunk of dry ice into the carved pumpkin. Add a bit of water to speed sublimation (melting). Try adding a glow stick to make it even more spooky in the dark. Enjoy!
