11 Kid’s Science Themed Party Ideas

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:

Once Upon a Time Storybook Gala Ideas

It’s getting to be that time of the year again….fundraisers, holiday galas, office parties….invites are starting to flow! With so many celebrations going on, it’s easy for guests to get bored with seeing the same festive looks, or “night in New York” themes. It’s time to suggest something new to the committee! Why not host a once upon a time storybook gala? It’s nothing too modern, so it suits all ages, but it’s whimsical enough to be appropriate for guests of all ages. With the emphasis on incorporating storybooks into this gala concept, the décor focus shifts from a specific storybook theme, to transporting guests to space where any of their favorite storybook can come to life right off the shelf.

Here’s what I had in mind for this once upon a time storybook gala:

Ultimate Pokémon Party Ideas

Pika Pika!

By now there is no doubt you’ve heard of the phenomena that is Pokémon Go. It’s done more for the US obesity epidemic in one week then what presidential efforts have done in decades. This game is taking the world by storm, with users all over getting up and moving around in hunt for their next Pokémon catch, and I can’t blame them! Pokémon has been a long time favorite game of mine since I was younger. I played up through the gold/silver days on Gameboy. If you’re not sure what that means – well it pretty much means I am a fan of the original 151.

But enough nerd talk, we’ve got an exciting board to get to! This week I’ve put together some of my most absolute FAVORITE party ideas I’ve seen thus far. I’d reckon in the future I’ll have to update this as more and more ideas pop up, but for now, I think kids everywhere will enjoy the Pokémon party ideas I’ve put together for this week’s inspiration board. And to clarify, when I say kids, I mean tiny humans and grown adults like myself that still love their Pikachu. Or Charamander in my case. And Jigglypuff. And Sandshrew. Oh and can’t forget Eevee. You know what, I need to stop or I’ll be here for a while, and there are Pokémon to be caught out there!

Here’s what I had in mind for as ultimate Pokémon party ideas:

Colorful Dinosaur Party Ideas for Girls

Girls like dinosaurs too!

I never got why boys were always the ones having the dinosaur and ninja themed parties, and girls always had to have the spa or princess themed parties. That is just absurd! Girls can like dinosaurs, ninjas, and event racing themed parties too.

And so to honor the strong, confident girls around the world who want to celebrate among dinos, I have put together this week’s inspiration board, for them. The concept was to have a colorful dinosaur birthday party for girls, which was not completely pink, purple and full of gentility.

But you know what I found? It’s actually pretty hard to find dinosaur themed birthday party posts for girls that are not full of princess crowns, tutus, and bright pink. So I thought I would incorporate lots of vibrant colors throughout to make this event perfect for the dino loving little girl that could care less about a tiara and a doesn’t mind what color her dinosaur friends are.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Winter Penguin Party Ideas – for Kids

This party is also VERY DIY friendly, and I’ve been sure to link to all of the places I found these items and the tutorials below.
