Jamal's 10th birthday
We decided since he loved making things and experimenting we would design a Mad Scientist Party. There was a children's market coming up in the holidays so we saved up and went to the market knowing we would find lots of experimental kits. We came home with a car full of things and its didn't cost much at all. I ordered off the internet some Test Tubes, Beakers and Petri Dishes from a science shop. A lovely lady we know gave us lab coats, protective footwear and lots of gloves.
We had so much fun making Elephant Toothpaste.
While the rain stopped for a brief moment we made the most of some experiments outside.
First Mentos and Coke Geysers then we made some Smoke Drums
A short video clip of two of the Mentos and Coke Geysers going off :)
The place we got local ice from wasn't open in the weekends. We brought 5kg (thankfully they gave us a lot extra). When we got home Friday night it weighed just over 8kg, by Saturday night we had lost over 3kg. We were very lucky to have lots left for fun on Sunday at the party.
Both clocks were a working success.

This year we found bubbles shaped like science bottles. You mix the colours together to make different colours. Also make your own snow, magic growing trees, pens, chocolates, sherbet and Popping candy
Thank you so much to Jamal's friends Finn, Roan, Kian, Samantha and brothers and sister Leroy, Austin and Willow for sharing in his special day.
He had a wonderful 10th birthday :)
