Wondering where to buy science party items? Look no further!

15 items available on Amazon.com perfect for Mad Science Parties!

Find all of these things for a mad science party under $10 on Amazon

When I had our first Mad Science Party, I searched everywhere for items for the party. EVERYWHERE! I also spent quite a bit of money and it was kind of a pain to go to different stores.  Of course a couple years later, Amazon has caught up with the popularity of science and now they offer quite a bit of stuff.

Below I have gathered 15 items that are under $10 available on Amazon.com. Don’t do like I did where I took hours and hours trying to find items. Just shop on Amazon first! Be sure to look at the  ”recommended” items when you visit each item to see even more possibilities!

Last week a few friends came over and we had an Ice Cream Float party, a perfect way to beat the heat. Summer has been crazy busy and I haven’t seen my friends as much as I’ve wanted to and the kids have been wanting to invite some friends over so this was a perfect opportunity. After scoping out some ideas and ice cream recipes, I headed to Walmart to grab my goodies.

I served A&W TEN and Sunkist TEN, these new sodas have only 10 calories per serving. I personally am a huge Root Beer fan (it’s the only soda I will drink), so I was excited to learn about these new sodas! It’s seriously in the 120′s this weekend and while I love to drink water, I crave soda in the Summer like crazy and can end up drinking hundreds of calories (yikes). But of course there is the whole pressure of looking good in the Summer so all those calories, definitely not a good thing. This is a great alternative. After enjoying both A&W TEN and Sunkist TEN, I am actually a fan of both!

The Ice Cream Float station was a hit! Complete with the A&W TEN and Sunkist TEN along with Dryer’s Butter Pecan, Vanilla Bean and Peanut Butter Cup. The Dryer’s Slow Churned ice creams are always my first choice in ice cream because they have half the fat and they taste delicious! The floats were served in ice cold mugs I found at the dollar store.

Love Root Beer? I recently had an Ice Cream Float party (which I’ll share later this week) and created this printable for the party! I personally love Root Beer so it’s already in my office.

Witch Hat Treat Boxes

This week we are passing out the Boo Buckets we made for our neighbors ( http://cleverpinkpirate.com/2012/09/26/halloween-boo-buckets/) and we are also creating little treat boxes for our Halloween party.  These were simple to make with a simple cut out from Silhouette, the 3D Witch Hats. They will be great for table decor and guests can take them home at the end of the night!

  • Witch Hat Cutout (Silhouette)
  • Adhesive Tape Roller
  • Cardstock
  • Scallop Punch
  • Embellishments such as ribbon, Halloween Die Cuts etc
Simply roll the adhesive on the edges of the hat and adhere in a cone shape. Then fill with candy and adhere the base of the hat to the cone shape to create the hat. Decorate with ribbon and a round diecut punch on the front.

If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can find witch hat treat box templates to print out like this one: http://www.mias-craft-ideas.com/halloween-witch-hat.html

This week we are gearing up for Fall. We’ve gotten the decorations out for Halloween and we’re getting really excited for pumpkins, cooler weather and the spookyness that surrounds Halloween. One thing my kids can’t wait for is to see the Hotel Transylvania movie and we had a little dessert party to celebrate the release of the movie.

We went to Smart & Final prior to our party and picked up some desserts along with some party items such as forks and napkins. We even picked up a pumpkin for Fall since they were under $3!

As you can see, we’ve started putting everything up for Halloween with our party. We invited the neighbor kids over which are primarily boys and they definitely loved the idea of a dessert party. I told them to help themselves then left to get more plates and they had devoured most of the dessert!

We served First Street Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Cake from Smart & Final. Ohhhhh they were both so great. This was our first pumpkin pie of the season, well I guess of the year! The Lemon Cake bread served as a nice dessert and it went well with my coffee the next morning.

I also made some chocolate pudding and put sour gummy straws in it as worms. This dessert was easy to make in less than 5 minutes! I was happy to find the desserts from Smart & Final at such great prices. I went into another store recently to picked up baked goods and the prices were outrageous. I picked up the Pumpkin Pie for $3.49 and the Lemon Cake for $1.99. Great deal, right?!

What was really exciting about our dessert party was we actually got a free movie ticket to Hotel Transylvania! When we purchased 2 First Street bakery items at Smart & Final, we received a code for a free movie ticket!

I printed out the cute photos from the Hotel Transylvania FB page here:  http://www.facebook.com/HotelT?ref=ts&fref=ts

We handed out these little boo buckets to the kids that came. They are actually made with Smart & Final soup/food containers! Find the how to post here: http://cleverpinkpirate.com/2012/09/26/halloween-boo-buckets/

 The Boo Buckets were filled with candy from Smart & Final, I bought a 3.5 lb bag of Tootsie Roll Mix for $7.99.
