A friend gave my son a butterfly kit for his 7th birthday. Over the course of a couple of weeks, we watched out caterpillars build their chrysalides and hatch into butterflies. Then it was time to let them go–Bye, bye butterflies!
My son turned 6 on Friday. How on earth is that even possible?
Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have a thing for themed birthday parties…and that I try (in a somewhat obsessive way) to make cakes that go along with the theme. So, when I planned a science birthday party for my kiddo, I scratched my head for a while to think of a cake with a science theme…and, in a Eureka moment, realized that I just HAD to make an erupting volcano. In a seriously funny coincidence, when I started googling to figure out exactly how I was going to accomplish this ridiculous feat of cake, I came up with a post by my good friend Sheri Gurock about her own Erupting Volcano Cake experience from 5 years ago and discovered that we had even both hired Mad Science to entertain the kids–even though we are in different states!
