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.

To imitate a developing culture, put sugar crystals in a different test tube and fill it using a funnel.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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!
