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!
The Birthday Boy:
Mad Scientist Mustache
So I’ll begin with the decorations:

The Birthday Boy’s Cupcake!
Test Tube Treats
Egg in the Bottle
I attempted to make slime a few months ago but it didn’t quite work out for us…we used the cheap roseart glue over the elmers school glue and it was just a liquid mess. This time we used the real stuff: Elmer’s School Glue!! and IT WORKED!! I think I was more excited then my son but that was because he was more interested in watching Phineas & Ferb: The Movie then helping!
1 4oz bottle of Elmer’s School Glue; White or Clear
4 oz of water
1 cup water
2 tsp borax
Food Coloring: we used the neon green
Pour out glue into a bowl. Fill glue bottle with 4 oz of water and mix in with the glue. Stir and add in food color.
Mix 1 cup water with 1-2 tsp borax and stir to combine. (sorry no pic of this one)
Slowly pour glue mixture into the borax bowl. stirring while pouring.
Pick up the slime that forms into your hands and knead it. (toss the excess water left in the bowl) Slime will become more firm the more you play with it!
Add: 1/2 cup flour, 2 TBSP Salt, 2 TBSP Baking Powder and desired amount of food coloring into a ziploc bag!
Pour in 1/2 cup water and close the bag. knead and mix it until it is all mixed up.
(you can add more water or flour as needed to make it the consistency of glue)
Cut a whole in one corner of the bag and pour into condiment squeeze bottles.
PAINT!! (We will post pics of our art designs once we start painting!)
