Mad Scientist Costumes

There are some ways to get the right look without any problem. You can even grab the materials yourself and give them out to your guests when they come in. Buy several plain cotton shirts or undershirts, cut them in the middle, and wear them as lab coats. You can provide your guests with markers or sharpies that they can use to decorate their costumes and personalize their party supplies. You can create nerdy bow ties with construction paper and attach them to the lab coats with safety pins.

Send Out Invitations

Send out a party invitation that is suitable for your Mad Scientist party. It should be able to inspire excitement, so your guests will look forward to your party. Make sure to let your guests know what they can look forward to. Let them know the purpose of the occasion, the time, the place, and style, and any other instructions.

When planning your activities for your party, it is important to consider pacing. You need to divide your activities into 15-minute increments throughout the party. If your guests enjoy a particular game or activity, make sure to let it run longer than planned. If it isn’t going too well, you might as well drop it and move on to the next activity. Make sure to write your activities on an index card, so you can refer to it as needed. As soon as your guests arrive, you can usher them to your science experiments table where they can keep themselves busy until the rest of your guests arrive. Keep activities simple for smaller kids, but older kids may need more stimulation.

Hands-on Science Experiments

Set up science experiment stations where kids can entertain themselves. Grab baking soda, balloons, empty bottles of Gatorade, and vinegar. Pre-fill the Gatorade bottles with vinegar and the balloons with baking soda. Kids can then just grab the balloons and place them on the bottle. The balloons would then inflate magically. We have in our store balloons that you can use for this activity.

Build Molecules from Candies

If you would like to do activities without a lot of mess, here’s a fun science-inspired activity for you. Set out trays of squishable candies like marshmallows, and provide your guests with toothpicks as well. You can then ask your guests to build candy molecules. You might want to set out pre-built models that they can copy. The best candy molecule gets prizes.


Trinkets and candies have always been popular party favors. You can choose to give a more substantial favor, or you can give out party bags with small toys or candies. Just make sure that your toys match the theme of your party. You can decorate your party with items that guests can bring home with them after the party. Perhaps, you can add little toys to the centerpieces. You can give away the balloons to your guests. We have in our store fantastic party favors that you can add to your giveaway bags.

Assortment of Candies

You can’t give away party favor bags without candies and treats. Kids are actually looking forward to getting their party bags because of these treats.
