Goosebumps 2: Science with Slappy Ideas

With the weather getting colder, we're definitely feeling like a movie night is in order.

We've been busy skiing most weekends, but we're really ready for a quiet evening at home and Goosebumps 2 is going to be our next movie pick.

In Goosebumps 2, releasing on DVD/Blu-ray January 15:
Be careful what you wish for. With their after school junk business, best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash. But when cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a lockedbook that frees a supernatural nightmare-Slappy! Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium!
Besides a movie night, what about extending the fun with some fun science with Slappy?  These would also make for fun homeschool science experiments.  You could even pair up some of the books to make a fun mini-unit.

Head to the "Slapatory" and grow, observe, and glow your gummy bears!

And for more fun, make your own Goosebumps Gummy Bear Slime!  (My advice?  Slime stays in the kitchen!!!)

Check out Slappy's take on the experiments too!

Science experiments can be great snow day activities when you just don't know quite what to do and it's too cold to go outside.  Edible science experiments, like the Gummy Bear Slime, are even more fun to test out.  And combining any fun activities into your homeschool day is always a win for everyone, making this the perfect winter indoor fun.
