We celebrated Ryan's 5th birthday with a Science party.
I am working on 'scaling down' my parties so we only invited five year olds AND it was a "Drop Off" party (if your kid was comfortable). Most of the parents thought I was crazy but it was actually kind of amazing. The kids were all so good...and since we had entertainment I really didn't have to do much. I wasn't running around like a crazy woman which was actually kinda nice! I totally recommended going this route. Anyhow, Ryan has been so excited about his party - counting down "sleeps" for days...so cute! He loved helping make some decorations and some of the treats!
Cat from Everything Design created all of the printables - banners, labels, & cupcake toppers. She also made his adorable invitations:
Ryan helped with the Jello....he's a good stirrer
Our cake pops were also homemade. Ryan decorated them with those silver balls...and he also ate quite a few as well.
And my first attempt at decorative sugar cookies. Well, let's just say I would never make it as a baker. A lot of things went wrong but, all in all...they were for five year olds and they could care less how professional they look. Also, it didn't bother me when only a couple bites were eaten and then they were tossed aside for the next treat.
Sweet little scientists!

Dr. Boom from Mad Science of Dallas came to our house to conduct some fun experiments for the kiddos. There was fire, water, slime, candy and a hovercraft...pretty cool party if you ask any five year old.
The kids were pretty excited about it all...so cute!
