Halloween is full of all sorts of spooky and unnatural things and as we're gearing up for the big day at the end of the month, we've been working on ideas for the best Halloween party this side of the Mississippi. One project we'll be having fun with is glowing eggs. All you need is egg dye and a microwave, video after the jump...

We found a video this morning telling us we could make glow in the dark Easter eggs. But that seems like such a long time to wait, so we'll be making spooky Halloween eggs instead.

To start, soak raw eggs in Easter Egg dye for 5 minutes. Allow to dry completely and place them in the microwave for 10 seconds on full power. Now turn out the lights and you'll see the eerie glow that they provide!

We can see them hidden amongst bushes or plants for trick-or-treaters to enjoy, or even in a bowl on your dimly lit party table. Paint on monster eyes or silly shapes to make them come alive! Check out the video below for more on the science behind why the transformation takes place:

Note: This only works in 1 of 3 eggs so make sure you dye extra. Eggs are NOT edible after they have been used.
