Science Themed Birthday Party

Are you looking for a fun theme for a Kid’s Birthday Party? Well let me tell you about one!

My friend Debra threw her son a science/Minecraft themed birthday party. Science you ask? Yes, science is a great party theme for kids who love to do experiments!

We did the following experiments with a group of his friends: made green slime, paper chromatography, made a volcano, found strawberry DNA, and tested different types of sodas to see how they exploded with Mentos.

Green slime:  it’s fun, it’s gooey, and it’s science! What kid doesn’t like playing with slime? Making it is really easy too! You can even choose what color you want to make it by adding different colored food coloring to your gooey mixture!

Paper Chromatography – What colors make up different brands of black markers? This experiment leaves kids amazed!

Let’s make a volcano! How much of each ingredient do you need?

Strawberry DNA – It’s stringy!

What happens when you drop Mentos in orange soda, root beer and grape soda? We also tried Coke and Diet Coke. We got to see which soda shot up the highest!

We all had so much fun with these experiments! It was definitely messy but so cool! The kids learned a lot, and it was a great experience for everyone!
