Great ideas parents have used to complement our science parties Turn your home into a ‘mad scientists laboratory’ using simple household items, all you need is imagination and add a bit of fun! Place rubber reptiles, spiders and insects into old glass jars. Fill with coloured water and screw the lid on and you’ve got some colourful biological specimens to look at. Get the kids to arrive in a scientist costume, with a door prize for each guest from our science store. Make signs with chalk or your computer depicting beakers, test tubes, ‘danger’ & ‘radiation’ signs. Aluminium foil makes for great space science creations! Cover your walls with fake spider webs and place rubber spiders and snakes throughout the room. We can provide some realistic replicas of redback spiders and sydney funnelwebs from our store. Science party cakes Over the years we’ve seen so many great cakes. Try making a volcano cake or science beaker cake with dry ice, a radioactive or biohazard sign cake, a rocket cake or even a chemical symbol cake (especially if you can spell their name!) If you have access to dry ice you can make ‘volcano smoke’ as an extra effect – just make the cake so that you can conceal a small cup of water in the volcano crater. Of course, we usually run the science party for you but our free science experiment section has over 100 science party ideas that can help to expand the party further, just pick what you feel comfortable with. If you need help in running your own science party, just contact us and we’ll help out where we can!
