Parties for Boys


Of all the different party types that come my way, one of my FAVORITE things to see is a very well-done character party.

Gooey experiments, spewing “lava” & tasty petri dish treats — why couldn’t those things have been a part of my science classes?! My hypothesis is that there is absolutely nothing crazy about this Mad Science Birthday Party Experiment, where just about everything you see was made by the hands of Amy Liu Bissett of A Dazzle Day!
