It is easy to over think party treats. But, when it comes down to it, kids are very easy to please. So all you really need to do is add a little creative excitement to this party, plus a printable or two, and the kids are more than happy.
And, with a Mad Scientist party, a little excitement is easy to add.
First, we have our Specimen Jars. This are just ordinary 8 oz mason jars wrapped with pieces of black paper measuring 8.5″ x 3″. Then, just print out the free printable Mad Scientist Specimen label (download below) to stick on the front. Fill your mason jars with gummy worms, gummy bugs, or whatever other candy you can find, and you’re all set!
Next, we have our highly active ingredients – Jello! Buy some pre-made jello cups that match your color palette. In our case – lime and grape (since the grape was so dark it passed off as black). I would have added lemon if I could had found it. Turn the cups upside down and top them with the “Warning Active Ingredients” labels (download below).
And, finally, I have the potions mixing. I purchased a couple sets of test tubes and medical flasks off of Amazon. I made sure I had a medical flask for each child to use as a cup. Fill the medical flasks with sprite. Then, fill the test tubes with drink flavoring syrups. I used DaVinci’s Lime, Pineapple, and Coconut to match the color palette of green, yellow and white.
Let each of the kid mix and match their flavors. Will they end up with a lime and coconut? Or what about a pineapple lime? The mixing and matching is endless fun.
