Science Fun for Everyone

What it is:  Now, we've been to plenty of area birthday parties from bouncy houses to local parks, but we never went to a birthday party like the one we were invited to this weekend.  It was at a place in Cary called Science Fun for Everyone, and we had a wonderful time!  When we walked in, the kids were immediately given little lab coats to wear for the party.  There were interesting animals in cages around the brightly colored room to look at before the party started.

Once the party started, the kiddos decorated goody bags and then did great science experiments for an hour.  They were able to make "mars sand" that never got wet, and "alien snot" which they were able to take home.  They also taste astronaut ice cream, watched mentos and soda explode, made "astronaut toothpaste" and even went outside to shoot off a water rocket.  The party finished with some time to party with the guest of honor, and each guest got an awesome goodie bag full of fun science toys to take home.  The "scientists" hosting the party were great, and we had a great time!

In addition to birthday parties, Science Fun for Everyone also offers after school programs at some Wake County Schools, and offers camps for children.  Their website also has some great experiments that you can do with your kids at home.

What we liked:  It was a different idea for a birthday party.  The experiments were fun and the kids actually learned something.  My boys both walked out wanting to have a birthday party there for their next big day.

What we would change: Science Fun for Everyone is located in Cary, so it's about a half hour drive.  Plus, the birthday parties are a bit pricey, but still in the range of other birthday parties around here.
