Young boys love to conduct experiments- mix things together, see how they turn out…. maybe make something cool like slime or even chewing gum! So bringing in outside entertainment for a birthday party in the form of a cool scientist who can conduct experiments with your party guests in sure to be a hit! We planned this party when my son Spencer turned 5 years old, and used a local franchise company called Mad Science to supply the scientist (and it was even COOLER because she was a girl!), the experiment supplies… and best of all… the dry ice!
The Science Party Invitation:
I found some cool clip art of a beaker and of a cute looking scientist online, and printed them on my color printer to create these cute party invitations!
The Science Party Activities:
The nice thing about hiring entertainment for your child's birthday party is that they bring along everything that you need for all of the activities! Our scientist brought all kinds of cool experiments for the kids to do…. the kids mixed up slime…
And she brought along dry ice, and showed the kids what it could do…… like cover them in fog!
A huge hit!
The Science Party Birthday Cake!
Nothing says “Science Party” like a volcano cake, right? And our kind scientist allowed us to borrow a bit of that dry ice to use so that our volcano appeared to be smoking!
Science Party Goody Bags
The goodie bags for this party were some cool science projects that I found at Oriental Trading company- such as a connector to make a cyclone out of 2 2-liter bottles, and some cool 3-D puzzles. To make things fun, these goodie bags were hidden in our front yard, and required a treasure hunt to go and find them!
