Science Party Woohoo!

My mom usually hosts my nieces' birthday parties, but she was a bit floored when my niece asked for a science themed party.  Being an engineer and total science geek, I was thrilled to tackle this theme...even with only two weeks to plan and execute!  Check out some of the fun things from the party!  I made t-shirt lab coats and solicited the help of my crafting partner in crime to help with vinyl work on the water bottle favors.  The kids loved the science experiments during the party...growing snow and blowing balloon using vinegar and baking soda were huge hits!

 Science Badges & Lab Coats

 The kids LOVED the experiments!

 Each child received a science notebook for collecting data (Dollar Tree!)

 Who does love Pop Rocks & Bubble Gum Molecules!?!?!

Election Day

My daughter had a 2 hour delay at school today, so that meant mommy had to keep her entertained while trying to work (yay!  to early voting!)  I decided to make some election themed activities that worked on color, name, and number recognition and also threw in a little fine motor practice.
