Now roll up your sleeves (literally) and get ready to learn the super quick and simple Orbeez Ghost Eye Excavation. 
Excavating Adventures Pro Tip: Once you have finished enjoying your Orbeez, you can put them in your potted plants or garden. Orbeez will hold moisture and help keep your plants watered!

Some items to "excavate" and discover that you will hide in the Orbeez Ghost Eye Excavation. Try some little plastic spiders, bugs, and insects. This will align our excavation items with the spooky theme and provide a great way to introduce an educational conversation or lesson about these awesome creatures. 
Estimate the amount of Orbeez needed to fill your container and add water. It may take up to several hours for the Orbeez to absorb the water and grow to their full size. 
Once the Orbeez are grown, pour off any excess water. 
 Hide your insects, bugs, and other spooky items in the bottom of the container.

You're sure to hear some excited and strange reactions from your participant!
