Planning your Science Themed Party1Contact thescienceshed.com.au to book in a date for your budding scientists’ party. They bring the lab coats, protective eyewear and awesome experiments. 2Arrange some science-themed yummy treats by a local custom cake maker, such as customcakesbytinaayer.com.au
3Get the vibe going by creating a science-themed music playlist – or borrow ours on Spotify! Its’s called Science Party! (See below). 4Print off periodic table element symbols to make words. We used the words FUN, PLaY, and GeNIUS.
5Orbeez (water beads) in tall vases or bowls make great looking decorations, and they’re a super fun sensory activity. 6Replace the labels on water bottles with ‘This H2O belongs to’ labels. You can download and print your labels HERE!
7Instead of loads of lollies in the goody bags, send the scientists home with a take home experiment such as mentos and cola (pictured) or a few glow bracelets. Download and print out take home experiment here – : EXPERIMENT and LABELS!
8Make petri dishes with bacteria growing out of jelly and sprinkles or hundreds and thousands.
