A Science Theme Party, also sometimes called a Mad Scientist Party, can be 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

  • 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!)
