Mad Scientist Birthday Party!

Standard

So as stated before in earlier posts we had a Mad Scientist Birthday for my son’s 8th Birthday! We did all kinds of experiments and had all kinds of treats. Everything didn’t quite go as planned but what Mad Scientist does everything that is planned. By the time the party day got here I just wanted to get everything done. I’m very thankful for the people that took pictures because I didn’t have time to!

Today we picked out what we would do the rest of the week and then started on today’s items. We chose to have a Baking Soda and Vinegar day! We aired up some balloons with the mix and made mini colorful volcanoes. Joshua was so excited and thought everything was soo cool.
