Halloween Science Experiments for Kids || Spooky Floating Ghosts || Science for Kids

Get ready for some Spooky Science fun! We're making Floating Ghosts for Halloween. In this video, we show you how to make tissue paper ghosts that can fly when you wave a balloon over them. The tissue paper has positive charges that are attracted to the negative charges on the balloon due to STATIC ELECTRICITY. We also test a hypothesis that lighter materials like tissue paper will fly easier than heavier ones like regular paper. You can do your own experiment at home by cutting out ghosts of different materials and seeing which ones work best. Remember to make a hypothesis and then test it!
