Hayden's 7th Birthday Mad Science Party Continued

The kids did several experiments. Carbon dioxide bubbles were made using a "special" jar purchased from Steve Spangler Science. Steve had to use dry ice to make this experiment work. It was a big hit! The kids loved wearing the glove that made the carbon dioxide bubble not burst. The kids also did an experiment to identify the different density of liquids. They just loved seeing the magic of the colors separating!

The GRANS FINALE of experiments was the DIET COKE Geyser tubes. Every child had a tube and got do do this awesome experiment on their own (also purchased from Steve Spangler Science). What a great time the kids had doing this. The kids all counted down from "10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF" for each other!
In between experiments we let the kids play in the backyard and run around while we set up the next experiment. Baby Landon finally joined the party after the loooooongest nap ever. My mother in law sewed his lab coat so it would fit him! He was adorable. The very last thing we did was open presents. This was a STAR WARS birthday! Hayden only wanted Lego Star Wars and that is exactly what he got. Daddy spent a lot of time putting Lego's together.
