- Colourful Centrepiece
Water can be made colourful by adding droplets of food colouring until the desired shade is achieved. Pour the coloured water into the test tubes with caution using a funnel. Fill one of the test tubes, beaker, or flask with candy sprinkles to represent microorganisms using a funnel. To imitate a developing culture, put sugar crystals in a different test tube and fill it using a funnel.
- Molecule model
Using colourful candies or play dough to make the molecules, you can chopsticks, or any sticks to connect these molecules together. Using different colours for different elements will help in identification.
Children’s fun activities can be challenging and expensive. The first choice to make is whether to do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you. It goes without saying that doing it yourself will save money, but hiring someone for an hour or two can ease the hassle and prevent you from multitasking on D-Day.

The choice of return gifts may be difficult for the parents. However, this is the most memorable and cherished part of the entire birthday party for the small ones.
The giving of return gifts is something that children constantly admire. The young ones anticipate this with interest. Even near the end of the celebration, when the kids’ return gifts are being distributed, there is a lot of excitement to be seen. Therefore, parents should only select presents that their children will genuinely enjoy receiving.
At a science themed birthday party, a return gift that can be DIY or a puzzle that can be solved will be cherished by them.
Invites are the first impression that the parents and the children have before coming to your child’s party. Make sure to add the theme name, as they can prepare themselves beforehand.
When sending invites through email, hand delivery, or posting, be sure to include the following information:
- If there are multiple kids with the same name, be sure to include the child’s last name on the invite card.
- Include both the day and the date of the party, just in case.
- Make it clear when the party will start and stop unless you want to deal with stragglers at both times!
- The more details you provide here, the fewer questions you will need to answer about where the party will be held. Why not attach a Google map to an email?
Scientists literally transform the world with their discoveries! Join their lab and dress up as a scientist for the party. You might even pick up some potion-making skills!
Safety equipment is a must for all scientists! So, be sure to have
- White Lab Coat

Bonus! Use a beaker or a telescope as a prop!
We all have tried a lemonade or even a pink lemonade, now let’s try out a colour changing lemonade with the help of butterfly pea flower petals. Use the extraction from the petals which will be blue coloured and add lemon to it. The colour will change to purple.
It appears bright blue at high pH levels (basic) and changes to a vivid pink at low pH levels (acidic). Because of this, as you swirl your butterfly tea into your lemonade, the colour will change from blue to purple to pink.
Regardless of the fact that they can be costly to buy, making your own bath bombs can be enjoyable and rather economical.
