Every party needs balloons, and with them, you can show your guests three "shocking" experiments about static electricity!
Here are three science-y activities for your party, including a recipe to make your own bucket of slimey goop!
Buy (or make) rock candy to show your guests how (sugar) crystals form. The larger candies mirror the individual crystals of granulated sugar. Let your guests compare them with a magnifying glass.
To "grow" your own rock candy, a few weeks in advance, dissolve 4 cups white sugar in 2 cups boiling water. Add a few drops of food coloring in your party's colors. Let the sugar syrup cool, transfer to cups, and leave wooden candy skewers in each cup (or a wooden toothpick for a miniature treat!). Cover loosely, out of direct sunlight, and wait for the crystals to grow. You can speed the process by wetting the stick and rolling it in sugar before placing into the sugar syrup.

Use static electricity to tranform strands of metallic tinsel into an orb that floats as if by magic. (It works especially well in dry weather.)
Any kind of simple experiment can be transformed into a fun science party activity! Here are over 20 experiments to choose from!
Science parties don't have to be rocket science! Just let your guests learn more about the exciting world we live in, and how and why things work like they do. Here are some experiments to help them learn about flight while having fun -- they should really help your party take off! Brilliant!
