Has your house been invaded by slime yet?
Ours has – multiple times! Thankfully I was worded up on a handy tip to use vinegar to remove it from any surface (including carpet), so the slippery, slimey fun can continue. It’s since sparked a wave of interest in science experiments and my kids have even been creating more slime at school…and bringing it home (*thank you…not*)!
A science and slime party theme is perfect for inquisitive school aged children, and we’ve found some great items to help pull it all together – and then watch an episode of Myth Busters or Operation Ouch! for some more inspiration!

Science and Slime Party decorations
Pick your favourite coloured slime and go to town with weird and wonderful textures, shapes and props. You can find lots of things at home to use such as chalk boards and glass jars – just fill with water and food colouring for added effect! You can go with any colours for a slime or science party theme but we have included lots of green items for the typical slime/science party look:

Science and Slime Party Tableware
A table amongst the madness set with coordinated slime coloured tableware will be enough to pull the little scientists away from the experiments long enough for cake.

Science and Slime Party Entertainment

It’s so great to see kids interested and excited in science, so why not encourage it with a science and slime party. Mums and Dads might even enjoy it too!
There isn’t a kid I know who hasn’t marvelled at a Superhero and their incredible powers, and thanks to the talented folk at Pixar, Marvel, Disney and the like, Superheros have morphed beyond the traditional stereotypes, making them more appealing than ever to both boys and girls.
The best part? Superheros make great kids party themes!
Superhero Party Inspiration, Sweet Heavenly Events, Sydney
Not only is a Superhero party a popular theme for kids, it’s also popular with parents as it’s super easy to pull together. Take inspiration from the Superhero stylists and go beyond the primary colours with girly pastels or monochrome black and white, and insert some comic book fun with speech bubbles, city landscapes and monograms to create something special – maybe even your own Superhero! We’ve also included some traditional red/blue/white superhero partyware in this blog for you if you love the classic look!
As always – the items showcased are all from our wonderful network members that are also listed in our Directory section of our website!

Have you noticed how much harder it is to get creative with kid’s parties the older they get?
Much to my delight, the popular disco theme is making a comeback and is a popular choice for both parents and kids alike – either at home, Scout’s hall or purpose built party venue. They remind me of the school discos we loved attending as kids ourselves.
The best part? The inner stylist in us can still be let loose to decorate and style up a storm!
So here’s our finds for pulling together a stylish and fun-filled disco party with the help of a few of our LLC Vendors starting with of course the best disco kids party entertainment out there – Bop til you Drop!:
