Description

SALE CHOOSE 10+ growing maggots toy grow in water worms creepy crawlers apothecary display Horror movie birthday bug party favor Horror Halloween supply - Put these in water, turn on a Horror Movie or Murder Mystery or Scary Leprechaun movie and watch them grow!

CHOOSE an AMOUNT: 10 or 20 maggots by using the drop down option box to the right of the photos. Currently, we have 47 available.

Dare to grow some interesting yet creepy fake maggot larvae! These do take some time to show noticeable grow from 24 hours to several days and seem to reach their max in a week! Great for your apothecary prop display with fake poisonous water!

SMALL MINI SIZE: 1 1/8" inches long and 3/16 inches wide. When grown in water for a week, it grows to about 1 3/4 inches. It takes about 24+ hours to see any growth change and several days to a week to max out on growth.

CONDITION: These come individually wrapped in a closed plastic bag, as seen in photos 1 and 2 and needs to be cut open to use. Made out of some type of foamy squishy plastic when grown.

PROS: They do grow when placed in water and will look super creepy gross in a bunch placed in a jar of water.

CONS: They do not come with any directions and will take some time when placed in water to show any growth, so one must be patient. Might make a good starter activity for a Horror Movie sleep over and to check in the morning.

DIRECTIONS: We experimented with cold, warm and hot water and warm to hot water seemed to work best, but growth isn't very noticeable for a day or so. Might be a great science experiment to hypothesize and record beginning, during and after growth with a ruler.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - small parts. Not for children under 5 years and needs to be used under adult supervision.

EASY KIDS ACTIVITY: A week before Halloween, while supervised by an adult, kid's could use a black sharpie to add eyes or a black band around one end to make it look more like a maggot and put in an apothecary jar to shake and watch grow and then use as a Halloween display.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: USPS first class tracking and insurance. Shipping overages of $2 are refunded after your shipping label has been made. If you purchase 2 orders, it will ship 2-3 day PRIORITY USPS mail with tracking and insurance.

Junk Drawer Love Story: I used these types of water growing toys all the time in my classroom for third graders. It's an easy way to use the scientific method and also teach patience! I found these in a box of my hoard! Enjoy!

LAST PHOTO: keep them in a casket tin when you pass them out!
