Making Fake Blood

Hi,
I remember making "fake blood" as a science experiment using candy red hots, white jelly beans and corn syrup. Does anyone have the "recipe"?? Each ingredient represented "part" of the blood. I cannot seem to find my recipe and we have just begun our unit on the circulatory system and I would like to do this experiment. Thanks for your help!!

Blood Soup

I make blood soup as a 'reward' for my students. Here's what I do:

I give each kid a ziploc baggie. As we discuss each blood component, I add an ingredient to their bag.

Plasma = corn syrup
White blood cells = marshmallows
Platelets = rice
Red Blood Cells = red hots.

They love it!

We use red hots for the red blood cells, white dessert mints for the white blood cells, corn syrup for the plasma. You add ingredients to the ziplock bag as you discuss them. The kids remember the parts so easily!!!!

Hello.

Thanks for the ingredients! I have also utilized craisins as the red blood cells!
