No, but really, as good as candy is, it also makes your insides rot. Sort of a catch 22: eat it, love it, die. Zinc trisodium aspartate, bisulfate oxide, malto-dextrin alkalide, dehydrated calceinate, artificial barley malt, and the list goes on. This can't be good for you. But will it stop us? Never. Will it stop our children? Nope. Will it make for a fun Halloween project? Damn skippy!
With some paper, blacklight paint, and LEDs, you can make a super sweet Halloween treat AND a profound statement about healthy living. Pffft!
The beauty of this project is that it's prety versatile. So let's get started.
Step 1: Materials you will need
Small Biohazard Bags - available @ med supply stores. If you have a friend who works in a hospital, have them grab a few.
Few sheets of paper - optional
Few sheets of paper towels
Multicolored LED's (blue and green work best)
UV paint (glow in the dark paint) got mine @ http://www.maxmax.com/- optional
3 - 3.5V batteries
Blacklight - optional
Step 2: Create the glowing bio bits
Once dry, rip the paper into as many tiny pieces as you can. This way, it will look like glowing toxic bits with the candy. Use as much paper as you have paint for. The more the deadlier. Have fun with it. You can try different kinds of colors too.
Place in a bowl. Move on to next step.
