Mad Scientist Party Decoration
As the kids arrive at the party, you could present them with a white lab coat and goggles. This will allow them to instantly feel like they are arriving at a Mad Scientist lab. They can also come in very useful if you intend on undertaking some experiments during the party.
Not only will the kids love it, but you have also created some party decor just by having the kids there.
When setting up your party decoration, one of the first things to organize is your party backdrop.
The backdrop helps to set the scene and it is easy to add other finer details. Think about the colors you want to use for your party and choose 3 colors for your backdrop.
Popular colors for a Mad Scientist party would be orange, white, blue and green.
Place some chalkboards around the area with science symbols on them. Have some available that the kids can play on too so they feel like they are creating their own formula’s.
An easy decoration idea would be to have several jars scattered around with colored water in. In those jars place various objects such as eye balls, or little animals. Anything that you think might be found in a crazy professors lab.
Similarly, some test tubes with small insects would have the same appeal.
