Head to The Delaware Children’s Museum in Wilmington, Delaware for its Spooky Science Days! Spooky Science Days uncover the scientific secrets of polymers, luminescence, carbonation . . . and trick- or-treat candy. During Spooky Science Days you might make green slime, brew up mysterious potions, or invent invisible ink! Or explore black lights and glow sticks at the Halloween Glow-in-the-Dark Dance Parties—For Ghouls and Boos, Saturday-Sunday, October 22-23.
Today Thursday Oct. 6th is Slime Time from 11am -12 pm. Slime is a fun, ooey-gooey, polymer-based material that you can make yourself using common household ingredients. Make different colors of slime, find out about the chemical processes that give it those yucky properties and learn about household supplies you can use to make other science projects. A part of “Spooky Science Days,” Oct. 4-31.
Friday Oct. 7th features Pumpkins Aglow from 11-:11;30am. Enjoy pumpkin stories and use the science of luminescence to make a pumpkin that eerily glows in the dark.
Halloween weekend (Saturday-Monday, October 29-31) you can make your own Halloween spider (and web), join us in a daily costume ball (1:30pm each day), try your hands at some Halloween around the World activities, and make your own pumpkin-face masks!
Wear your costumes to the DCM and get some extra use out of them! Kids in Halloween dress-up receive $1 off general admission. (Grown-ups, too.)
There’s always something new to explore in the Wilmington Riverfront’s big yellow building . . . where it never rains and the temperature is always perfect.
