Plus, sometimes they got creative! I got candy is small pumpkins, and cauldrons, but nothing I remember would fall into my Halloween theme this year, Mad Scientist's Lab!
So I made these adorable test tube goodie bag poppers to hand out on Halloween (I will probably run out before I run out of trick-or-treaters, but hopefully some of the neighborhood kids will get a kick out of these!
What You Will Need:
Empty Toilet Paper Rolls (or paper towel / wrapping paper rolls cut into 5" sections"
Empty Clean White Styrofoam Egg Cartons
White Glue or Glue Sticks
Hot Glue Gun
Black Sharpie or other marker
Tissue Paper in Assorted Colors
Candy to fill them (and snack on too!)
Step 1: Cut Up Your Egg Carton
Measure the individual cups to the opening of the toilet paper roll, and trim each cup so that there is no excess.
Step 2: Glue on the Bottom
DO NOT use the hot glue directly on the styrofoam, as it will melt/warp the cups.
This is your test tube! Now you must decorate it.
Step 3: Wrap the Tube
It's okay if it sticks out a bit, or a lot, at the top. You can tuck that into the tube at the open end!
Step 4: Make Your Marks
Step 5: Stuff Em!
To make your tissue paper explosion and top off your test tube, roughly rip off half a sheet of tissue paper. Stuff the even end into the test tube, covering up the candy, and make sure to flare the rough end out the top!
