Mad Science Birthday Party Favors
This is the final post for the Mad Science Birthday Party! This post is all about the goodie bags.
I have a large list of Mad Science party items on Amazon for under $10 here:
This is what was in the goodie bags sent home with the kids. As you can see, I tried to make it as science and fun like as possible and of course different than the traditional toys in goodie bags.
I found the science kit and book at the dollar store along with those marshmallow eye balls. The straws are also available at the dollar store but these were bought at Hobby Lobby.
Candy Test Tubes
These are Martha Stewart test tubes (from Halloween) full of candy.
Find the tubes on Amazon! Martha Stewart Test Tube Favor Kit
You can also find these in Joanns around Halloween Time! Stock up, these are really durable and fun!
The best part of Winco Grocery Store? The candy section. A-MAZING! I was able to supply candies for the party for cheap. I found the stickers at the dollar store ( I am sure left over from Halloween). The rock candy I tied on to the outside, I found it at Fuzziwiggs in the mall.
I tried to make rock candy BTW. FAIL!
Glow in the Dark Slime
This Glow in the Dark Slime was pretty cool. Credit for the recipe and printables to go http://domesticcharm.blogspot.com/2011/10/glow-in-dark-slime.html
Please check out her blog post and show her some love for this great idea.
It’s just borax, water, Elmer’s glue and glow in the dark paint (Glo paint is what I used from Hobby Lobby for $3.49)
If you check out Katelyn’s blog post you will see her slime seems to be a lil bit more green. I think it’s because I used traditional Elmer’s school glue and she says to use clear or blue gel glue.
Brain suckers. Cute, right?! I found the mold at ABC Cake store, a local store in central Phoenix. If you have never been to this store, it is a must see here in the valley. They have cookie cutters to molds to sprinkles that are candy eye balls (which I got at ABC cake store too). I just used a drop or two of red candy coloring from Wilton and white candy coating from Walmart (it’s 2 lb for only $2.97, very cheap).
Not in Phoenix? Check out this mold on Amazon: Brain Pop Candy Mold
Probably one of my favorite things in the bag, brain soaps. I have never made soap a day in my life but I can tell you this was so easy to do.
Brain mold great for chocolates or soaps get it at Amazon 3D THE BRAIN Miscellaneous Candy Mold Chocolate
Clear Glycerine Soap- 5lbs
Red Soap Dye: Essentials Soap Color Dyes 3 pack Red Yellow Blue .75 oz.
This was so easy, just melt the soap base in the microwave and then add a few drops of red coloring. These soaps will be set within 1 hour!
I found the bags at Goodwill for something like 15 for $1, it was a steal for brand new gift bags. I then put on the front brain die cuts from my Silhouette on the front. The bags were big so that the kids could also take home their experiments.
