How to Throw a Science Party for Your Little Mad Scientists

By Megan Price

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.

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. Just push them together, secure with zip ties, and spray paint! Then hang your balloon cluster from the top with fishing line. Need help from a pro? A local balloon decor company can create something amazing for you!
