Our house became the "Shareese Birthday Lab". Safety first, the kids had to put on a lab coat and get an I.D. badge before coming in, and had to put on safety glasses while we did experiments.
Then we had 5 experiments:
Sink or float: we practiced making hypotheses and then testing to see if we were right about what would sink and what would float.
I made sure the kids knew that you don't ever eat or drink in a science lab, and has some labels made up special for some of our chemicals:
Colored Milk: We watched some cool color swirls as we observed the interactions of molecules
Then we had beaker cake and presents and the kids got to take home all their sciency stuff!
Thank you so much Gramma Leah, Aunt Shelly and Uncle Matt for helping with this party!
And happy birthday, Shareese!
