{SCIENCE PARTY} FAVORS & DECORATIONS & COSTUMES

patton’s SCIENCE PARTY
{click HERE to see an overview of the party}
was so much fun!
because we were on a budget for the
SPACESHIPS AND LASERBEAMS 
BOY BASH CHALLENGE
we had to be creative
{which just happens to me my specialty}

****************************************************
FAVORS


the favor bags were pretty simple to make.
i cut a piece of paper to look like a lab pocket and
drew the lines on & attached them with double sided tape
each kid got an “experiement” to do at home
{aka those $1 “grow and animal” sponge packets}
and nerds… come on thats funny :)
and a chocolate brain pop.
AND of course they got to keep their costumes

COSTUMES



GLASSES
they were actually modified sunglasses.
i got a pack of 6 in the walmart party favor section
pushed out the shades 
& cut off the corners which had silly decals on them
and added a little masking tape for fun
didn’t they turn out cute & nerdy?! 
LAB COATS
the lab coats were actually just 
L youth fruit of the loom t-shirts
we cut them up the middle. 
NO SEW! {that’s how i like it. cause i can’t sew!}
BOW TIE / HAIR BOW
i followed this tutorial online
and attached clips horizontal for the girls hairbows
& vertical for the boys bow ties
NAMETAGS
these were printables by spaceships and laserbeams
you can find them here
*******
and of course there was
my “mad scientist” costume!
who just has this costume lying around? 
a wierdo thats who.
we waited for everyone to get there and 
then i snuck away to put on my costume.
i ran out {and probably scared them…}
and then we all went back inside to put on our costumes 
to get ready for experiments!
{experiement detailed post coming soon}


getting ready to go out and get the kids!!

i love the look on her face!!

totally worth looking like a dork.
the kids LOVED IT!

DECORATIONS

LARGE SCALE ATOM
{DIY link coming soon}
made from a hula-hoop!!

PRINTABLES
all of the printables were by the talented
SPACESHIPS AND LASERBEAMS
and can be found
in thier STORE HERE

SANITIZING STAION
this part was SO much fun! 
i highly suggest this for your party!
when the kids came in i had them go through a “decontaminating” process!
they had to wash thier hands, 
sign the “laboratory waiver”
eat an “antibiotic”
and then pass through the “sanitizing shield” 
into the secure party area!

EXPERIEMNT STATION
i saw the tri-fold posterboard and it totally reminded me of a science fair!
so i added all the experiments that we were doing at the party.
i set up the experiment station on a rolling island so that we could
move it away from the wall when it was time for them.
i will be posting about all the experiments very soon!!
BEAKERS & SCIENCE BOOKS
even though they were just for looks, i loved the beakers and science books!
the beakers were actually just large beverage serving pitchers
from homegoods filled with colored water
the science books were from my massive collection in my garage from
when i was a science teacher… if you don’t have these you
could cover large books with butcher paper and just write on them!*************************************
BIG thank you to 
SPACESHIPS AND LASERBEAMS for the printables!

  2. This might be one of the most creative themed parties I have ever seen! WOW! I am happy to be your newest follower, and I’d love to have you stop by and check out my little blog: dosmallthingswithlove.blogspot.com

  3. I would love to know where to find your costume wig. If you remember where you picked this up, please let us know.

  4. This is uber cute and fun! I’m so doing this for when I have kids hahaha

  5. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going
    to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

    love love everything about your science party!! any idea when the large atom tutorial may go up??? would love to make it to go with my son’s science party!

  7. Lots of great ideas! Another fun science idea is to grow a pet TickleMe Plant from seeds and watch how the leaves fold and the branches fall down when you Tickle It!

  8. Thank you soo much. My son asked for a science birthday party and everything I needed was found in your post. I am using it for my guide. The party is tomorrow. He is s excited. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!

  9. I have been looking on line for a wig like yours. Where did you get it?

    • it is from a halloween costume from a long time ago! you are not the first person to ask that and i wish i had a better resource to send you to!!

  10. Can you share the wording on the laboratory waiver form or share where you purchased it from.

    Thanks!

    • I just created it myself by hand – I don’t remember exactly what it said but something along the lines of safety rules and the potential to get slime all over you! Each kid had to sign their name on a line. they didn’t get it but the parents thought it was funny!
