The Wall Street Journal ranked “science shows” as the top birthday party choice for children in a recent poll, and parents are getting into the action. Armed with some simple supplies from around the house, a few science recipes and a bucket of creativity. Janet Spears, a first grade teacher from Vidor, Texas, shared pictures from her son’s birthday party.
My son was in my classroom this year and we did SO many of your experiments. So many that he decided to have a “science” birthday party. We did lava lamps, slime, Ivory soap in the microwave and, of course, Mentos and Diet Coke. WOW! They had a blast! I wanted to send you a picture of the coke and mentos experiment we did at Garrison’s party. This was the highest ever! It even went out of the picture. The kids sticking their tongues out trying to catch the coke while the scientist is running is particularly funny.
