Weird Science Party Ideas

When it comes to planning kids parties, some of the best ideas come from movies. Take the film Flubber for example. A story about a scientist who creates this incredible green goop that bounces about and sets off a wild goose chase. What a great idea for a ten year olds birthday party? A science theme party where instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey or pass the parcel, they can make their own experiments and learn weird and wonderful things. I’m talking about bubbling volcanos, make your own flubber, jumping coins and kid-friendly lava lamps. The kids will love to sit and try their hand at being mad scientists and the looks on their faces when they make something jump, bubble, burp and stretch will be priceless. A quick search on line can bring up plenty of easy, kid safe science experiments that can be made from items in your own home.

The jumping coin is a fun one to do. For that you need a bowl of chilled water, a coin and a glass bottle. Place the coin and bottle neck into the cold water and let it chill. Then, stand the bottle upright and place the coin on top of the opening. Wrap your hands around the bottle and wait a few seconds. The heat from your hands warms the cold air inside the bottle. The warm air pushes out and up against the cold air that is outside of the bottle. The warm air moves up to the opening of the bottle and pops the coin, making it “jump”. Another fun experiment the kids can do (and take home with them) is making their own lava lamps. You need plastic bottles (so hold onto your recycling) with their lids, vegetable oil and water that has been coloured with food dye. Let the kids fill the bottle up with oil about ¾ of the way. Then pour in the coloured water to fill bottle. Secure the lid tightly. When they turn the bottle upside down, the oil and water slide around each other, with coloured blobs and shapes moving about. Safe, non-toxic and a perfect take home gift for them along with their little container of home-made Flubber.

To decorate the party laboratory, use white table cloths, cups, bowls, plates and clear cutlery. Colourful balloons can be attached to walls and ceilings with the help of static electricity – let the kids rub the balloons on their heads and using the static charge, the balloon will cling to the surface of the walls, windows and ceilings. Serve up treats like home-made lemonade, hand cut chips with aioli dip, citrus cupcakes, nachos, sausage rolls, spaghetti bolognaise, ice cream sandwiches, various dips, crackers, vegetable sticks and cheese. Hiring a fairy floss machine, turn out cups of fairy floss in different colours and sprinkle popping candy over them. Display the candy buffet in small glass jars and large glass jars and give them labels that make them sound like weird and wonderful science experiments. Set the experiments out on different tables, ensuring there is enough room for the kids to sit and work wonders. Pink Frosting have glitter that you can set out in little portion cups for the kids to add to their flubber goop. Make up “Did You Know?” cards for the kids to read and collect. Print up some extra experiments and include them in the loot bags for them to take home and try out.

All of your laboratory style decorations can be found with one simple visit to Australia’s #1 Online Party Store – Pink Frosting. Let them help you create a fun and exciting day for your little Einsteins.
