My son is really into anything science related, so we decided to have a science themed birthday party! We had lab coats, badges and clipboards for all the kids to give it a more realistic feel. We also did several experiments throughout the party, and at the end of the party, the kids take home some of their experiments.
All the kids looked fantastic in their lab coats and badges!
Chocolate cupcakes and chocolate cake.
Activities / Games
Lots of science experiments! We made snow (using a kit from Micheals), volcanoes (that we made explode using baking soda and vinegar), slime, and pudding creations. The last experiment was geysers; by adding Mentos candy to Coke.
Test tubes filled with Skittles candy as well as the various experiments (slime and snow) and their lab coats, badges & clipboards.
Seeing the looks on the kids faces when the geysers were going off! Priceless!
What People Ate
Pretzels & tortilla chips in giant beakers, petri dish jello with gummy worms, beaker shaped pb&j sandwiches.
What People Drank
Mini sodas for the kids & water for the adults.
My son's reaction to his geyser going; he got so excited he stumbled backward & actually fell on the ground! ;o)
The Celebration Shoppe
At the last minute, we had a cake situation and I had to have some cupcake picks. I ordered from The Celebration Shoppe the night before the party, and they had them to me the next morning! They went along great with the bottle wrappers I had already ordered!
