Let kids learn to be mad about science with a mad scientist party complete with decorations, tableware and favors from Shindigz. Start by announcing dates for your party with a custom banner with a science fair design. It’s made of sturdy vinyl and available in sizes up to 72x202, a dimension that easily will catch the attention of cars passing by your church. Use our Create-An Invitation to make reminders to send to the party guests so parents can write the dates down on their calendars. Pick your theme colors, order coordinating tableware for snack time and your prep work is in good shape.
Planning activities for a mad scientist vacation Bible school is easy with a little imagination. Set the tone for the week by greeting children with a giant periodic table listing, not the chemical elements, but broad categories at the top that are the elements of a faithful life. Kids can fill in the other blocks throughout the week. On Monday, have each child immerse a chicken bone in vinegar, checking the results daily. By Friday, they’ll find a bone that’s soft and rubbery – the same thing that happens when they surround their moral skeleton with bad things. Stock up on vinegar while you’re at it. It’s great for a number of other experiments, such as combining bases (baking soda) and acids to will show them the joy of an overflowing holy spirit. Balloons also make fantastic experiment, and you’ll find a range of colors and designs at Shindigz.
