As you will see, making these spooky Halloween drinks for kids is absolutely simple once you have the knowledge and correct supplies!

Any drink or punch will work.

Step 2

Next, add gummy worms, or other creepy crawlies, to the edge of the glass for an extra spooky effect!

Step 3

The final ingredient for your foggy witch’s brew is to add in a few small pieces of dry ice.

Our dry ice came in a big brick and we had to chip pieces off of it.

Use tongs to handle the dry ice, and gloves if you must pick it up with your hands.

It is very, very cold.

Watch the children’s eyes grow wide with amazement at what you have just created.

I love this idea to add dry ice drinks to beakers for added spooky fun!

You can even use beakers to create a Mad Scientist Potion, like this one from Foodie Fun.

Cool, right?

Safety Tips for Working with Dry Ice

What is Dry Ice?

Dry ice is a frozen solid form of carbon dioxide gas that we exhale every time we breathe. The foggy smoke is not harmful. Of course, if you will be using large amounts of dry ice, then be sure to work in a well-ventilated area to keep good oxygen flow in the room.

How Cold is Dry Ice?

Carbon Dioxide freezes at -109 degrees F which makes dry ice much cooler than regular ice. It can give you a freezer burn if you touch it directly, so wear gloves when working with it.

Does Dry Ice Float?

Dry ice will sink to the bottom of your drink, so either wait until fog clears to take a drink, or just sip the drink from the top without letting the dry ice actually go into your mouth. Don’t eat solid dry ice, it’s way too cold for your body!

Can I Store Dry Ice in the Freezer?

Store dry ice in an insulated cooler, not your freezer. It is colder than regular ice, and will slowly melt in your freezer. As it melts, it turns from solid carbon dioxide to gaseous carbon dioxide and the air pressure in a confined area of your freezer will increase and could cause damage.

How Long Does Dry Ice Last?

Buy your dry ice as close as possible to when you plan to use it, as it is difficult to keep it cold enough to remain solid for more than a couple of hours or up to 24 hours in a cooler. As you can imagine, it will also depend on how large the block is that you purchased or if it is in pellet form.
