A Science Party, also sometimes called a Mad Scientist Party, can be a theme with a lot of fun for kids party ideas.

With a bunch of science experiments, the activities take care of themselves! No need to plan a lot of kids party games.

And kids LOVE to do science experiments.

So, this party easily made our children's birthday party ideas list!

Easy Science Party Ideas

Here are some fun and easy mad science party ideas to include at your party!

Mad Science Party Ideas
  • Give everyone a lab coat as they arrive. To make one, just slit a man's large t-shirt up the front.
  • You can also mouse everyone's hair so it sticks straight up and have rubber gloves and safety goggles for everyone.
  • For a fun birthday party treat, serve jello with gummy worms inside
  • If you have a large number of party guests, divide them into groups, sending them to experiment "stations", group by group. Just have a different adult in charge of each station.
  • To find some fun, kid friendly but awe-inspiring experiments, get a book of kid science experiments. (Amazon)
  • If this is a sleepover science theme party, watch a fun movie like Back to the Future. (Amazon)
  • To make a science flask cake - Make a round 2 layer cake. Stand a cardboard paper towel tube up in the center. Then frost it to look like a science flask. Add a bit of cotton candy coming out of the top so it looks like it is smoking or bubbling over.

  • Science Party Favor

    As a party favor, send a "crystal  making kit" home with each guest!


    1. Pipe Cleaners
    2. Bottom of Alum (find in the spice section of the grocery store)

    Instructions (include with the supplies):

    1. Pour 2 cups of water into a 1 quart jar.
    2. Add entire bottle of Alum
    3. Heat in microwave 3 to 5 minutes.
    4. Let cool.
    5. Make a shape out of the pipe cleaner.
    6. Place pipe cleaner in the jar. You can hang it into the jar by wrapping one end around a pencil and setting the pencil over the jar.
    7. Leave the pipe cleaner in the alum solution for 2 hours. The longer you leave it, the larger the crystals will grow (we like to leave ours for a few days!)
