Add to the fun with a hands-on activity for your guests!  

Channel your inner Paleontologist!

Add a dinosaur-themed activity to your party, including dinosaur eggs that the guests can use tools to “hatch”. Guests will excavate a mini dinosaur toy inside each egg to take home!

Get messy concocting ooey-gooey slime.

Working with pre-portioned ingredients, each party guest will mix up a personal batch of slime. Guests will then choose their color and add small plastic bugs to live in their new slimy environment. At the end of the party, each guest will take home their individual bag of slime – that means party favors are covered! This activity can only be reserved for the 3:30 party time due to clean up.

Is your child a burgeoning chemist?

With this exciting add-on, each party guest will be able to create their own chemical reaction. A Discovery Lab educator will lead your guests in this fascinating science experiment resulting in tall towers of foam!

Using a little bit of chemistry, one can make water behave in strange ways.

Children will guess where the “snow” goes in this fun magic trick and simultaneously learn about water absorption. Guests will get to take home their magic snow at the end of the party!

A chemical reaction creates an explosive good time!

By using the chemistry of acid and bases, you can create an instant rocket! This experiment highlights what happens when enough carbon dioxide is produced and pressure mounts.

All add-on activities will take place in the classroom space.
