Of course I hopped online and search for some ideas and had a blast planning it all. My husband created all the graphics for me and I printed them at home. Our house was transformed into a laboratory with just a few items. I bought a clear shower curtain and just cut thick strips up to the top seam. I just used a staple gun and with about 3 staples, tacked it to the outside front door frame.
I'm completely laughing right now because I've just noticed that laboratories is spelled wrong! LOL! Oh well. I'm sure none of the kids noticed
Each friend got a lab coat (white T-shirt cut up the center), safety glasses (I found kids sizes here) and their personalized access pass.
Of course I used my chalkboard as party of the decor. Since it was a science party I wanted to incorporate the periodic table somehow. It happened that we could spell Liam's name using to of the elements!
As a filler for time as each guest was showing up I pulled out our Marble Maze and had them work as a team to build the largest run by using all of the pieces.
I'm a big believer in party favors as a way to say thank you to your guests. I put together these little kits for each kid that included A water bottle (Formula) with a Kool-Aid singles attached. A note pad with a marker attached, rainbow sour strips (because it matched the party colors), 2 sponge capsules (H2O Experiment), Tic Tacs (Genius Pills), Magnifying glass purchased here, and Skittles (Protons, Neutrons and Electrons) in a little petri dish purchased here. Everything was placed in a plastic caddy I found at the $pot at Target.
