Alien Eggs Halloween Activity

One look at these alien eggs and you will know they could never have been laid by an earthy creature! These spooky decorations can be hung from trees or set around your house. Anywhere you put them will create a spooky atmosphere.

What You'll Need:

Wrapped candies

Halloween toys (creepy bugs and monsters)

12-inch balloons

White glue

Water

Measuring cup

String

Push 3 to 4 large wrapped candies and a medium-sized toy inside a deflated balloon. (Important: Don't use small candies or toys! Make sure that the candies and toys are too big to fit back through the nozzle of the balloon -- so you have no danger of inhaling the objects. You should have to stretch the nozzle to get them inside.)

Blow up the balloon until it is about 6 inches across. Tie the balloon.

Mix 1/2 cup white glue and 1/4 cup water. Put the string in the glue/water mixture. Pull the string between your fingers to squeeze out some of the glue; wrap the balloon in a spider's web of string.

Allow to dry in a warm place for at least a day. When the glue is thoroughly dry, pop the balloon. Carefully take out the broken balloon pieces.

Balloons are choking hazards -- keep them away from small children!

Makeup is the perfect way to enhance any costume. Keep reading to learn how to make colored face powder -- a great addition to your costume this Halloween.
