Make Your Own Specimen Jars!!

Tobin teens made specimen jars using creepy-looking foods like lychee, bamboo shoots, hominy, noodles, dried chile peppers, cauliflower, and baby corn. We put the “specimens” in glass jars filled with water and added two or three drops of food coloring. We also had dark soda on hand to make the water a bit murky. Then, we labelled the jars based on what the specimens looked like. You should find most of the food items in an international food store. Making specimens is VERY simple and cheap, so try it at home to creep out your family and friends on Halloween!
