In this video, you'll see five different party pleasers done with dry ice.
Number five. Take a flaming candle and place it down into a container like a bowl or glass. Carefully pour some crushed dry ice down around the base of the candle, and within just a few seconds, you'll notice the flame goes out. And the gas turns completely invisible. Now challenge one of your friends to try and relight the candle inside the glass. They won't be able to do it, and they'll have no idea why. Even after multiple attempts, the flame goes out every time.
Number four. For this trick, find a block of dry ice and break it into pieces in the size of small rocks. Carefully place one or two of the pieces inside of a balloon, and tie it up. You'll notice the balloon begins to inflate all by itself. Now try doing this with a bunch of other balloons, and throw them all into a basket. Over the course of about twenty-five minutes, the balloons will keep growing until you've got a basket overflowing.
Number three. Start this prank by opening up a Ziploc bag and adding a few chunks of dry ice, followed by a little bit of warm water. Now seal the bag so it's completely airtight, and find a place to hide it. After a minute or two, the bag will be completely pressurized, and ready to explode. Who could you scare with this?
Number two. For this party trick, take a large metal spoon, and press it down into a block of dry ice. It lets out an awful squeal, and people will beg you to stop. You can make a quarter scream in the same way, just lay it flat on the ice, and press down into it. For a bonus trick, try sticking the quarter in sideways. It'll start shaking uncontrollably.
Number one. For this last trick, add some crushed dry ice into a large clear bowl. At this point, try blowing the biggest bubble you can, and drop it right into the center. Instead of popping on the bottom, it levitates around in midair, and makes your friends wonder, "What kind of sorcery is this?"
Well, now you know a few tricks and pranks of dry ice that are super cool and easy to do. If you like this project, perhaps you'll like some of the others. Check them out at thekingofrandom.com.
