This weekend we had Tyler’s birthday party with his friends. Now, his birthday is technically in June but this year we told him he could have his party during the school year since his Summer parties have low attendance because of Summer plans.
We had a Mad Science Party and the kids had so much fun. Let me rephrase that, beyond fun. They were super super excited to participate. We had experiments, a decorate your own cupcake bar, dry ice and more. I am breaking up the posts over the week so I don’t overwhelm everyone who reads the posts. I wanted to show you a little bit of what we did and of the fun and of course of Tyler in all of his mad science glory.
Thanks to my friend Sara at @ MomEndeavors.com, Tyler was able to wear this lab coat during the party. It was really cool, it was actually a Mythbusters lab coat! I tried looking in thrift stores and online but lab coats are a little pricey!
We had different tables set up with experiments This one was Polymers and it had little different experiments that involved these dry polymers and water.
We had a glow room full of black lights and a few activities that glowed! This one was where I cut open a glow stick and took the liquids out and separated them into two different tubes, then showing them the reaction when combined.
Ty had a lot of fun showing how to do experiments like this one at the Electricity Table.
One of the best things about the party for the kids? Being hands on and getting messy!!
I have learned to not stress on cakes and cupcakes, instead for Tyler’s party we have cupcake bars where the kids can decorate their own cupcakes. We had a crazy cupcake bar where the toppings ranged from bacon bits to sour gummy worms!
Of course no party is complete without a goody bag. Instead of the typical items we tried to keep them all mad science related! I’ll be sharing how I created some of the items like the brain soaps and glow in the dark slime in another post!
