Our Children’s Science Parties – a birthday party to remember

  • Build the perfect party that suits you

First, pick one of our science themes, then decide how long you’d like the science entertainment to be – 60, 75 or 90 mins – whatever works best for you. Decide how many children you’re inviting – we now offer a reduced rate for small gatherings -yay!

Finally, let us know if you’d like us to sort out the sweets & extra party favours too!

  • Everyone becomes a scientist

Celebrate your child’s birthday with our first class science parties packed with hands-on exciting experiments for everyone! Guests don’t just sit and watch a science show, we know that children particularly love getting involved and therefore we ensure all the guests do the experiments, be the scientists, making potions, slime, magic bracelets, bath bombs, for example, depending on the theme you choose.

  • Free party bags

All our science parties include goodies for the guests to take home, these are the things the children make during the party as a result of their experimenting. These science momentoes means that the happy feelings continue long after we’ve left! Building memories.

  • Free invitations

We’ll send you a PDF so you can print as many invites as you need – no need to buy any!

  • Consistently 5* reviewed

Both parents and children love our science parties! (more testimonials at bottom of page). Birthday parties make the best memories and the birthday child has the very important job of helping us in our science show, but also we get everyone involved and hands-on with science – this makes us different from the rest, and what kids and parents love about our science parties.

  • We are mobile & come to you

You can have your party at your home (kitchen, lounge, patio – wherever!), or in your garden, a community hall or other venue.

Covering the South West UK – Devon, Cornwall, Dorset & Somerset, we are happy to travel.

Crazy Chemistry Science Party

5-8yo

An interactive science show followed by exciting, erupting hands-on experiments. Children look like real scientists in our little lab coats and safety specs too as they make lava lamps & slime. For longer parties we add in party games. Everyone keeps their creations (lava lamp & slime).

Mini Scientists Party *new*

4-5yo

Our new Mini Scientists party is packed with experiments perfect for toddlers. First, we gather for the science show, then we make lava lamps, have fun with bubbles & make rainbows with sweets. Kids go home with their lava lamps and own-made bubble wands. No slime here.

Slime Science Party

8-12yo

Our slime experts will set slime-obsessed kids wild, teaching them how to make all sorts of sticky silliness: floam, fluffy, unicorn, galaxy, glittery, jelly, and our favourite, butter-slime. Plenty of colours, glitters and scents to choose from! Everyone takes home the slimes they make.

Sparkle Science Party

7-10yo

We start with science demo’s, then children make lots of pretty, colourful and sparkly concoctions – glittery lava lamps, an edible rainbow diffusion experiment, colour changing bead bracelets & scented bath bombs. They take all of these home! This party has no slime.

Magical Potions Science Party

 7-10yo

Kids are welcomed to the world of wizardry! After magical demo’s, guests make mystical wands & bubbling potions which become science souvenirs for their party bags. The guests help the birthday child conjure up a big potion in a cauldron….watch out! We finish with the Exploding Elixir.

Dry Ice Party Party *new*

7-11yo

Dry ice science show and interactive demo’s. We feel the sublime smoke, hold cute Boo Bubbles, pop bubble snakes. Youngsters stir up magical foaming dry-ice potions in mini cauldrons. We finish with either slime making or a bubbling lava lamp to keep.

Absolutely fantastic! All the children were engaged and enthusiastic about the experiments. Ruth did an amazing job of keeping all the children interested. It was quite a large group of 30 children, but they were all included and left with huge smiles on their faces. Even the adults were enthralled with the experiments and fun that was being had.

FAQs

We can work with any sized space, adapting to fit your venue, so this could be tables set up in your lounge, maybe around the kitchen table, or perhaps in a big community hall. 

no, mess is unlikely, as a result of leading hands-on science for many years! Occasionally, something may get knocked over, but if this happens we are quick to wipe up. If your party is at home and you have carpets, you can put a tarpaulin down (we have a large tarpaulin that we can bring, if you don’t have one).

We are mobile and come to you, therefore we don’t have a venue you can use. However, we can recommend venues as we have been to many different halls and places to run parties, so if you are having trouble finding something, do ask us as we may know somewhere close to you that’ll work.

First, we gather children round for our show that the birthday child can help with, then everyone gets hands-on with the science through guided experiments and activities, depending on the theme you chose. You can read more about what to expect here.

Basically complete the form above, press “submit” and it’ll arrive in our inbox. We’ll respond by email within 2 days.

Testimonials

  • Franny, Tiverton
    My son and his friends absolutely loved his Crazy Chemistry birthday party last weekend. Ruth is a genius at making science thrilling and accessible - she throws in little bits of learning whilst also revving the kids' excitement levels up and up. Favourite quotes from the kids amidst the squeals and gasps as things fizzed and exploded all around them were "science rocks", "this is the best party ever" and "this is actually blowing my mind".
    Franny, Tiverton
  • Kelly, Science Party in Plymouth
    The communication prior to the event was clear, the party itself was engaging, fun and it was certainly his ‘best party ever!’

  • Caryn, Crazy Chemistry Party, North Devon
    Absolutely fantastic! We had Sciencedipity for my sons 7th birthday party and couldn't have been happier. All the children were engaged and enthusiastic about the experiments. Ruth did an amazing job of keeping all the children interested. It was quite a large group of 30 children, but they were all included and left with huge smiles on their faces. Everything they made with the experiments was packaged well so they could take it home, which made lovely party bags. The birthday boy had the time of his life and will definitely be a day he won't forget. Even the adults were enthralled with the experiments and fun that was being had. Everyone said what a great time they had. Highly recommend, worth every penny!

    Today we had the joy of Ruth hosting our 9 year olds birthday party with a Harry Potter Potions Party - and it was brilliant!! Ruth was fantastic from my first enquiry until the very end of the party session - I would highly recommend. That was definitely a party the children will remember for some time! And lovely that they have some items to take home too. Many thanks x

  • Kay, Magical Potions Party, Barnstaple
    Something a little different for our Daughters 9th birthday party. Ruth was very engaging with the children and they all loved it and were still talking about it at school on Monday.
    Kay, Magical Potions Party, Barnstaple
  • Kate, Crazy Chemistry Party, Youlstone
    The children were entertained, fascinated and engaged on what was a hot but lovely day. So many positive comments from other parents with their children (and mine!) saying it was the best party ever! I would highly recommend Ruth and her team.
    Kate, Crazy Chemistry Party, Youlstone
  • Katherine, Sparkle Science Party, Barnstaple
    The party was so well organised and the kids were engaged throughout. I had messages from parents afterwards to say that it had been their child's best party ever.
    Katherine, Sparkle Science Party, Barnstaple
  • Becky, Sparkle Science Party, Braunton
    Our daughter and her friends had an amazing 7th birthday party. There where shrieks of excitement and silence (almost) as they were engaged in the activities and experiments. Ruth held the attention of 15 pretty wild children amazingly and I was able to sit back and enjoy a coffee! It was absolutely amazing fun for the children but also as they have shown off their bath bombs, lava lamps and UV light bracelets to family and friends they have talked about how they made them. I would recommend Ruth's party but also the various sessions she does! Amazing!
    Becky, Sparkle Science Party, Braunton
  • Chloe, Exeter, Magical Potions Party

  • Ellie, Mid Devon
    Ruth’s science sessions have been wonderful for my children recently and they have all got so much from them. It really brings the fun of science to life for them and makes them enthusiastic about it. So much so that when my daughter had a day at school recently where they had to dress as what they would like to do when they are older she went as a scientist!!
    Actually we have been so impressed with the sessions that we booked Ruth for my daughters birthday party and the kids all had a ball. Ruth’s enthusiasm for the subject is infectious. I would highly recommend her sessions as well as the birthday parties! They are also amazing value for money.
    Ellie, Mid Devon
  • Alex, Sparkle Science Party
    Highly recommend Ruth and her team for a highly engaging and fun science party. Communication throughout the planning was timely and Ruth answered my numerous questions. On the day, my 7 year old daughter and her friends had a fab morning, there was lots of Interaction and hands on experiments for the children to get involved with, making the birthday girl feel that extra bit special. All children got to take their creations home in a lovely party bag supplied by Ruth and decorated by the children. A highly enjoyable and stress free party!
    Alex, Sparkle Science Party
  • Sarah, Potions Party
    A huge thank you to Ruth for the most magical Harry Potter science party for Emily! Absolutely brilliant and engaging for all the children…they have been practicing their magic at home even after the party! Would highly recommend!
