Beakers and Flasks!
Add an authentic feel to your party decor with glass or plastic beakers and flasks. Use them to hold party snacks, for older kids they would make perfect drink carafes.
We put candy and marshmallow in the flasks and our jello filled syringes in the beakers. Buy now on our Amazon Shop.
These biohazard bags are so much fun. Fill them with a snack of your choice, such as popcorn or Pirate's Booty. Buy these bags now through our Amazon Shop.
Let the experiments begin! These chocolate brains (filled with rice krispie treats) look so cool.
These acrylic trays from The Container Store are perfect for displaying the brains. A dozen will fit in one large tray. We had 24 brains and used 2 trays (stacked) to display them. The trays are a good investment as you will use them over and over again for play dates and other parties.
Jello filled syringe
If you want to do more on your own, you can purchase a download and print yourself set of labels. If you want to do less you can purchase syringes (larger than what we used) already labeled, and even a stand for them. We just stood ours up in glass 1000ml beakers, which looked very cool. Each 1000 ml beaker should hold 12 - 13 1 oz syringes.
Warning: These can be messy and end with jello on the floors and on clothing, especially with younger kids.
Buy now the syringes now through our Amazon Shop.
Nerd-filled Test Tubes
This display looks so good! The Nerds are small and colorful and look great in the test tubes. I ordered "BIOHAZARD!! Nerd-like side effects" flags from Bsquared Design. Just note if using the test tube stand, you'll only be able to put the tags on the outer tubes.
We made 30 for our party of 14 kids. We had many left over but was worth the leftovers as the display looked so good. If you opt not to display or decide to make even more, these would be great in favor bags.
Jello filled Petri Dish
If you make one thing, this should be it. The result is amazing!!
Check out the How To to learn how to make them and what you need to buy.
Quote from our party, "Ooooh! I can't wait to eat some germs!"
We happened to have this guy and he really added to the Science Lab feel.
The kids loved getting a pair of these glasses as they walked in. They all looked adorable with them on as well. Be sure to get children's sized ones for young kids.
Available on Amazon for about $14 for a box of 10. But now through our Amazon Shop.
Ranging between $16 and $22 per coat, these are a splurge. But if you can swing it, they add a lot to the party. Especially in combination with the Lab IDs and safety glasses. Every child will look like a mini scientist.
I heard of a few kids who did not want to take the coats and IDs off even when they got home.
I tried a couple brands and some were not worth the money. This AeroMax Jr coat is high quality and available on Amazon. But now through our Amazon Shop.
