Halloween is a great time of year where you can experiment – with your costumes, make-up, even food to make creepy new concoctions. This year you can experiment with a brain or an eyeball with the Horrible Science kits from Living & Learning.

The Horrible Science kits are an ideal alternative for party bags or can be made up to decorate the house for the party. These four are especially suited for Halloween:

· Savage Spiders - spin a springy spider’s web to catch flies, ghouls and any flying witches. Discover how and why spiders spin weird ‘n’ wonderful webs and sticky spider silk facts.

· Eerie Eyeball – make an eyeball and peer into it or use it as part of your Halloween costume. See eyeballs evaporate before your eyes and learn how you can be blinded by science!

· Bulging Brains – cast and paint your own brain, conduct brain experiments or scare your friends and discover horribly mind-boggling facts.

· Spooky Stars – make a spooky Star Show, become a Staggering Stargazer and check out why stars are scary plus other starry facts.

The handy sized bags contain all the essential equipment required to perform tummy-turning, gravity-defying, optically-awesome and wickedly-weird experiments at home. A ‘Horrible Info’ leaflet full of comically illustrated instructions, explanations and facts is also included.

Also available in the Horrible Science range are – Heaving Heart, Slimy Slugs, Violent Volcano, Weird Worms, Shocking Rocket, Sick Stomach, Super Snot and Crazy Cars kit bags and Disgusting Digestion and Mysterious Magnets kits. So with bodily functions, creepy crawlies, geographical science and mad motors, there’s something for every ‘horrible’ little Einstein.

The Horrible Science kits are available from Argos, Toys R Us, Toymaster, Youngsters, Hamleys, Science Museums, Fenwicks, Ottakars, Express Gifts mail order or online at Amazon.
