This isn't the first year I decided to freeze some goofy stuff in ice for Halloween. Remember that all the years of ice experiments can be found at the Index of Ice Experiments page.
Some previous years I've done:
This year I went back to ye olde drugstore and bought more stuff I thought would freeze well. I ended up with some skeleton hands, a vampire bat skeleton, and some little finger puppets.
Next up, a bat skeleton. This I just placed across the top of the cooler - it fit snugly into place.
