Curiosity is one of the best parts of being a kid! They want to know how everything works, and they’d never dream that mixing vinegar and baking soda would create so much fun! If you have a little mad scientist who loves making “slime” or tornadoes in a bottle, these science party ideas are for you.
Science Party Decorations
It’s time to turn your living room into a lab! And every lab has beakers brimming with curious concoctions. These beakers filled with colorful liquid and dry ice make an awesome piece of science party decor!
Atoms make up everything, and that should include your science party decorations! These adorable hanging atoms are made with hula hoops from a dollar store.
