Looking for a different theme for children’s birthday parties? Tired of seeing the cowboy or princess party every other weekend? Why not go for something fun and unexplored, and try hosting a science themed birthday party?
Not only is it not something you see in a cookie-cutter box store, but it has lots of opportunity to bring in fun learning and exploration possibilities. I especially am fond of it because it is a way to make science and curiosity fun for kids, but also a theme that girls and boys alike can share, without any gender bias.
To help get you brain flowing with ideas, I’ve put together 11 of my favorite ideas for a kids science themed party. Of course, they can be used together or apart, but they cover all of the major elements you’d want at a party like this. A cool food display, fun treats, and of course lots of decor ideas to make the day extra special. Here they are:
