Science party ideas with the Land of Nod
As you all know, we love a good party theme in these parts. Here’s one we haven’t seen on Cakelet yet, and one that is so absolutely perfect for boys (and girls!) preschool and up… A Science Party!
Preschool age kids looooove learning how things work and seeing materials transformed into something new. This modern party kit with a science theme from Land of Nod was a perfect starting point for a bright, geometric birthday party. We love the idea of starting with themed party essentials and using the colors and style to help you craft the rest of the party on your own. We added some fun food, paper garlands, billy balls, and a confetti cake.
To make graph paper party hats, we simply printed graph paper from a file we found online. But if you happen to have a stash of graph paper at home, all the better! The cupcakes followed this simple recipe and really were delicious.
We ordered billy balls from Bloominous (hello, genius idea… mail order flowers!) to add a simple natural element to the table. They’re launching a “Flower Market” on their site very soon where you’ll be able to order a la carte flowers for any occasion. So much better than hoping the farmer’s market or grocery store will have what you’re looking for on the day of your party.
We followed one of our fave tutorials from Design Love Fest for the geo garland. You’ll have to excuse us for making them for every party we throw. They’re so fun.
And naturally we needed rainbow jello squares. What other food is more “science-y” than jello? It’s an experiment every time you make it! To get the colors that matched our party, we mixed different flavors together (lemon with a teeny bit of lime, for example) until the hue was perfect.
And for the cake topper, we simply hot glued one shape from each garland to a toothpick. World’s cutest 6 second DIY project.
Makes a cute photo backdrop too!
This kit has the makings of an awesome party. Our boys loved a super styled Wednesday night dinner, as you can see.
