Formulating Fake Blood begins by asking children to describe properties of real blood. This information is then used as a guideline to make a realistic facsimile of blood from common kitchen ingredients. Making fake blood is a kid favorite any time of year, but is especially popular during the Halloween season. Always present the material from a strictly biological perspective, making sure to avoid any reference to gore or violence.
