Noah's Science Lab - Experiment 9

Jen H By Jen H  in Birthday


Party Recap

As my son gets older, it seems to be getting harder to come up with new and fun birthday theme ideas. He's in 3rd grade this year and he's been learning a lot more science. I came across Lillian Hope Designs printables on Etsy and I showed them to my son Noah. I asked him if he would like to have a science party for his 9th birthday where we could try experiments and he said YES!!
After much research on Etsy and Pinterest, there were a few ideas that we just had to do, such as radioactive worms, science cookies, individual lab coats and personalized badges. This was one of the most interactive and fun parties ever!
