When my son’s 4th birthday was approaching my husband and I gave him the choice of a train party or a Chuck E Cheese party. He proceeded to tell us he wanted a science party. Here’s what we did.
The invite was online, and I just pasted my son’s face on a picture of Albert Einstein.
We did two simple experiments, oobleck and rainbow wizard’s brew. Oobleck is a cornstarch and water mixture that has properties of fluid and solid. Rainbow wizard’s brew is fancier version of the classic baking soda/vinegar reaction. Both of these used common household items and kids ages 2-12 enjoyed.
We gave out these miniature magnifying glasses as party favors.
It was a fun and affordable. What a great theme idea from one smart little boy!
