Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Be Prepared and CAUTIOUS!
Before starting, you need to understand how dangerous DRY ICE can be if you aren't cautious! For extra caution I've used:
- Protective Eye Glasses
Make sure you do not have ANY direct contact with your skin because it will BURN :P
Step 2: Make Bloody Vampire Fruit Punch
To make this Bloody Vampire Fruit Punch, it is super easy! I poured in soome ready made fruit punch and added one can of 7-up! Add in some alcohol if you really want to spice things up ;)
If you want the drink to be extra cool, add in a cup of regular ice :)
Step 3: Prepare the Smokey Bloody Vampire Fruit Punch Bowl
To add some spooky effect you will need a separate and larger bowl than what you will use for the fruit punch itself.
In the larger bowl you will need to start slowly adding in the dry ice. I started off with about 1/3 cup of dry ice.. As you place it in the bowl you will notice some smoke coming out of the ice. That's how COLD it is!!
Step 4: Pour Over Warm Water
Right before you are ready to serve the drink, place over some warm water to get the foggy smoke effect.
TIP: The warmer the water the more smoke you will get ;)
Step 5: Serve the Fruit Punch
Alright now it's time to deliver the Bloody Vampire Fruit Punch to your guests ;)
Place the fruit punch bowl over the dry ice. Be a little cautious so the water doesn't drip over and ruin your table decor :)
Step 6: Fuming Jack'O'Lantern
I love how this turned out!
Step 7: Draw Out Pumpkin Face
Choose the creepiest looking pumpkin design you can find and start stenciling it out on the pumpkin itself.
Step 8: Carve Out the Pumpkin
Next you want to carve out the pumpkin design to get it looking as creepy as you can and make sure to clean out all the seeds from inside and wash it out,
Step 9: Place a Bowl Inside the Pumpkin
I created a back door for the pumpkin so I can easily place the bowl inside. Place some warm water and a hand full of dry ice and you are ready to impress your guests!
Step 10: Happy Halloween :)
I love the pumpkin effect at night, rather than placing a candle to light it up the pumpkin the dry ice did all the amazing work of impressing the trick or treaters and my party guests!!
