SCIENCE LAB BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Concoct some fun with this super cute and studious theme!  The creativity is off the charts in this Science Party from Jen Herrema- Jen hosted this adorable party for her son, and it is full of great ideas for your little scientist!

The party table is fabulous- and I love how each guest had their own lab coat!  Details are everywhere in this party!

This tower of cookies with of beakers, test tubes, and element N9 is perfect!

 

The activities for the party are spot-on and so much fun for the kids!  I love the elephant soap activity and the awesome photo booth!


What a SMART way to celebrate!! Thank you for sharing Noah's party!!

Here is more about the party from Noah's mom Jen...

 

As my son gets older, it seems to be getting harder to come up with new and fun birthday theme ideas. He's in 3rd grade this year and he's been learning a lot more science.  I came across Lillian Hope Designs printables on Etsy and I showed the science theme to my son, Noah. I asked him if he would like to have a science party for his 9th birthday where we could try experiments and he said YES!! 
After much research on Etsy and Pinterest, there were a few ideas that we just had to do, such as radioactive worms (jello filled Petri dishes with gummy worms), science cookies, individual lab coats and personalized badges. 
I went online and found the Science Wizard who does assemblies and birthday parties. I contacted him right away and booked him for the party. I'm so glad I did because the kids just loved seeing all the cool science demonstrations. They were having fun AND learning at the same time. Awesome! 
I also wanted to do a science experiment with the kids. We decided on the Elephant Toothpaste Experiment. It uses simple ingredients and there's a lot of you tube videos online. It didn't turn out quite how we thought it would but that's the fun of science. There were a few green, foamy explosions that were definitely not on the agenda but the kids enjoyed it! 
This was one of the most interactive and fun parties ever!
