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!
Bottom of Alum (find in the spice section of the grocery store)
Instructions (include with the supplies):
Pour 2 cups of water into a 1 quart jar.
Add entire bottle of Alum
Heat in microwave 3 to 5 minutes.
Make a shape out of the pipe cleaner.
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.
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!)
