Halloween Melting Hand Activity

This Halloween melting hand activity is easy for children to help setup and keeps their attention for a long time. We’ve done many similar activities over the years, but this is the first time we’ve done it as a Halloween activity. It was kind of inspired by Oogie Boogie from the Nightmare before Christmas (I never know if I should watch it at Halloween or Christmas). If you’ve not seen the movie, then Oogie Boogie is the villain and is made up of insects.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To do your own Halloween melting hand activity you will need:

  • Gloves
  • Food colouring
  • Things to put in it
  • Water
  • Jug

Start by filling your glove with some Halloween related items. We used some small world plastic bugs but you could use anything Halloween related.

Then mix some food colouring into your water and pour it into the glove. Don’t over fill it because the water will expand when frozen.

Pop your hands into the freezer, we left ours over night.

When you are ready to do the Halloween melting hand activity you will need:

  • Pipettes
  • Warm water

You can use salt, but remember that using salt on ice can drop the temperature of the ice, which can cause the skin to burn.

BB and I sat and played with this for almost an hour, trying to rescue the insects stuck inside.
