about this item
Scientific Explorer Disgusting Special Effects is a fun, safe and educational make-it-yourself kit that has everything you need to create your own outrageous and gruesome special effects. Makeup can turn any ordinary person into a scary zombie, a monster or even into a vampire. In this kit, you'll find everything your child needs to practice tricks that makeup artists use to create disgusting and frightening effects in movies. In each of the 7 activities, your child will learn how to make fake blood, oozing blisters, burns, gashes, bruises, scabby cuts and more. Along the way, they'll also learn some cool science about what happens to your body when things like gashes, bruises and burns happen for real. As your child creates these gorish, realistic looking special effects, they'll get to act and think like a real scientist. Your child will measure, compare things, ask questions and make observations.
