When the guests arrived they were greeted by Hayden and Grayson and had to "check in" at the Scientist Check in Station. Grandma was there with a laptop to play a pre-recorded message that was different for each child. We found a website that changed your voice into a funky voice and the kids loved it. Gigi was there to give the kids Mad Scientist hair (spikes and lots of gel). Hayden conducted a retinal scan on everyone by using "the largest glow stick ever made" that we purchased at I-Party.
I had the most fun putting together the decorations! I purchased all of the cut outs from thecelebrationshoppe.com. I ordered the cookies and paper goods from their website too! The cake was made by A Little Something Special bakery in West Hartford. Hayden wanted a beaker spilling goo all over the cake! They did an excellent job.
Let the experiments begin! I honestly think this party was so much fun and so easy for me because Steve did a ton of work. We purchased a lab coat for Steve to wear off of EBay. He had a lot of fun conducting the experiments with the kids. We "practiced" the day before with a few of the cool experiments. We purchased all of the science experiments from stevespanglerscience.com. We were able to get petri dishes, beakers, and all kinds of cool experiments from their website. Steve spent a lot of time researching which experiments would be best for 6 and 7 year olds.
SLIME-Oh my gosh! The kids had a blast with this one. Each child made their own slime and was able to take it home with them (parents-no need to thank me).
