The Inventor/ Mad Scientist Party

Some pictures from the party.
Alden invited 5 other boys. (Which funny enough felt like 2x the amount whereas the girls party two weeks ago was more girls and easier to manage! Lucy came upstairs and said to me "Mom, girls just talk a lot but boys are loud and make trouble!")
I had wanted to get the kids some lab coats. I was going to borrow some from my mom (She has enough for her entire grade 1/2/3 split class) but she couldn't find them and it was too late to head out to the thrift store to buy men's shirts - but that would totally work!)
So instead we just had funny mustaches. :) Kinda random. But totally funny!
We did some science experiments and a little building. Each boy got the same amount of toothpicks, marshmallows and cheesies. The boys really got into it!!
Then we made homemade silly putty or goo or whatever you wanna call it. Most of the boys loved it. One of them (Carter) said he was gonna throw up cause it was so gross. :) (Notice him escaping from the table quickly behind Ben)
Then we went outside to do some baking soda and vinegar exploding. Which they loved! :)

The cake. I let Alden pick whatever cake he wanted (from my Martha Book!) and he picked a cake called Martha's Birthday Cake. And only Alden liked it. The other kids told me it wasn't so good. hahahaha. I didn't really care. As long as Alden was happy, I was happy! :)

It was a good birthday party I think! Alden loved it!

What cool idea for a birthday party! That cake looked so yummy!

When one of Josie's friends turned 6, his mom did a home birthday party for him. She said it was sooo much work with all those boys(it was 5-6 boys and two girls at the party) and all other birthday parties have been held some place else.

Really a creative educational idea for kids' parties. Art and craft sale of wooden and metal pieces at one of the big San Francisco venues was superb. All our group went to enjoy and have a sneak peek at the unique collection. Everything we bought was worthy of prices. Met some known friends too. Lovely stalls and entertainment sources were planned too.
