Halloween Party

For our Halloween party, we had some fun with dry ice---ideas from here
When we were done we made root beer with the rest of the dry ice.

We did some Halloween music study and listened to:
Schubert's "Der Erlkonig" (there are some cool pictures inspired by this song---see here, herehere, and here
Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain (it's in one of Disney's "Fantasia" movies, here)
Saint-Saens' "Danse Macabre" (fun video here)

We also dipped caramel apples, which we haven't ever done before. It was fun. We used the recipe here, but I think my own caramel recipe would work better, so next time we'll do that. We'll also only dip as many apples as we can eat that day, as we found the apples significantly LESS good after a night in the fridge. The pretzel sticks kept well, though!
