A Unicorn theme Science Party for my 9 year old. March 25 2019, 0 Comments

12.12.2018 - the day my firstborn, Sophie turns 9 :) 

What a bittersweet feeling which means I have been a mother for 9 years! *Hooray* to myself! I survived Motherhood.

Certainly their preference for parties and celebration changes as the years go by. But with new classmates and friends, I couldn't say "No". In my heart, I wanted a party for her too :) 

So what theme? UNICORN craze is in! Ok, she likes Unicorn now. That's it, theme settled and onwards with the party planning.

For 9 year old kids, I consider them the not too young and not too old kids. Choosing a party activity is quite difficult as I do not wish to repeat what I have done for her and also want it to be different from her school friends. I mean its nothing new if the classmates were to experience the activity before, right? I had magician and indoor playground previously for her. 

I was doing research online for party activities. Many came up but only ONE caught my eye - A Science Experiment Party!

Hey, these 9 year olds have started learning Science this year, so apt to bring learning outside the classroom and in a party setting!

I went ahead to engage Newton Show for the party because they have many interesting hands-on experiments. I prefer kids to be more active rather than just sit and watch.

Instead of an e-card which I usually send out, we went ahead with Revelgram's cards. Sophie self written the personalised cards for her classmates. See that grin? :) The cards were given out 3 weeks prior to the party.

Revelgrams is a new online store specialising in journals, cards & stationary.

All designs are hand drawn before printing. 


It’s a blast! 1 hr of FUN to keep the girls (& adults) entertained. I chose their Dry Ice Show and 13 experiments was performed during the bday party :) Some of it includes Fire on the rainbow, Storm in the flask, Dry Ice Creation. @newtonshow_com did a great show in making everyone glued to the performance. ⁣

Kids do not just watch the spectacular experiments and amazing miracles, but they also get to take part in the shows themselves. Each kiddo brought home their own fave colour snow! ⁣

They do many other theme parties eg, Superhero, Fairy, Harry Potter etc.

Table Cover, Cake Plates, Cake Stand are all from Taobao. 


Unicorn cakes seem to be the IN thing right now. Soft, fluffy and tasty 😋 Sophie chose Vanilla flavour for her cake and it came in 3 layers! There were no leftovers so you can imagine the mouthwatering taste.
I went ahead with @thecakelore.

 Our delectable Nutella Blossoms (steam cakes) were from

Love her drawings!!

I bought most of the goodie bag supplies from You can do a search input 'Unicorn birthday' and a list of sellers will pop up. If you want my links, do drop me a note at my Instagram @aliciacho and I will share. 

I included Notepad, Pen & Hair tie inside the goodie bag, something useful. Most parents do not like to receive candies as part of the goodie bag anymore.
