Owen’s Aunt Meggie is a teacher and came with science projects galore and the kids were enthralled from the moment she started! Their first ‘experiment’ was making tie dyed headbands using permanent markers and rubbing alcohol. The kids coloured for almost half an hour and would have kept going if it wasn’t time to stop for supper.
Love the lab coats made from men’s t-shirts and the glasses. So scientific! Meggie and Ange were really organized and each experiment we premeasured and ready to go which helped the party flow and kept the kids attention piqued.
After supper there was slime making,
balloon blow up and Volcanoes. You can hear the kids reactions to Hannah’s volcano and hers was the 5th time they’d seen this happen! The entire party was like this and the kids were enraptured by every single experiment!
The icing on the cake…Mentos and Diet Coke Explosion using a Geyser Tube!!! LOL! You can tell we were newbies at this as the first bottle of pop sprayed right into where the kids were sitting! Oops!! We learned from our experience and rotated the bottle so that it aimed from side to side in the yard.
Thank you so much Owen for inviting Hannah to your awesome birthday party!! She had a ton of fun and we’re still recreating the experiments at home! Happy 6th Birthday Owen!!!
