On the 14th March 2016, Albert Einstein would have celebrated his 137th birthday! In celebration of all things science and of course, the contribution this great man made to the world, we threw a bright and colorful science party. Welcome to our grand experiment!
This full party printable set was designed and based on our science party invitation. We went for bright, almost neon colors that you might see in the laboratory of a mad scientist! I think my favorite part of the party was all the wild lime green!! The backdrop which is included in the full set, (which you would need to take to a large format printer), was printed onto 200 gram board and attached to the wall with mounting putty or blu tack. Happy 137th Birthday Mr Einstein!
Homemade Sugar cookies - a team effort in decorating these babies. We are slowly learning how to do Sugar Cookies!!! They are so much fun!
This gorgeous cake was made by my amazing team member, Catherine or "Martha" as she is often referred :) The mini cake bunting was accented by the beaker behind it, full of water and blue coloring.

We always have fun naming our food - these macaroons were named "nuclei". I had this made-to-look-vintage light sitting in my office cupboard and whipped it out when we were styling the table - we thought it was an appropriate addition. What do you think?
Green gum balls disguised as "Plasma Balls" - this is a real science term by the way!!
Colorful chocolate covered peanuts as "Atoms"...
The only animal testing we did here was on these delicious marshmallow "Lab Rats".
And then for the fun part! We organised "Fun Science" to come in and do experiments with our kids. They were mesmerized for the full hour! This is unheard of for 3-5 year olds right??? Yes!
My boy is absolutely mesmerized - here he is trying to get the water from one bottle to the next and making whirlpools in the process.
The girls had their turn too..
Absolute magic - Changing the color of water!
Katya the scientist in action.
Inflating balloons with bicarbonate of soda...you can just see the delight on their faces.
And wonder in those eyes...
Test-tubes with green sweet-sour candy were the favors for the party and the Thank-you tags included a famous yet simple Einstein quote - "Never Stop Questioning".
