Party Box Contents: Rainbow Peephole, Jelly Beans with a jelly bean experiment card & Crazy Ball (or World Ball)

Rainbow Peepholes

You only pay for the children that are experimenting at the party (with the minimum being 16 kids) so if you quote us 20 children and only 16 arrived on the day; then we will only charge for the 16 children

  • Invitations (pdf)
  • Science Party Boxes for all of the experimenting children

FAQ’s for the Science Parties :

Q) How much does a science party cost?

A) $20/child with a minimum requirement of 16 children or the equivalent fee (It’s okay to have less than 16 children but the minimum rate starts at $320 which is 16 children x $20)

Q) How do I pay?

A) No deposit is taken to secure a party (just your details will confirm a party) and payment for the party is made on the day of the party. We only accept cash. Sorry but no cheques or credit cards will be accepted.

Q) Do I need to make up party bags?

A) It’s not necessary as the party boxes we provide to all of the children experimenting are quite substantial and they go home with a lot of other stuff including their bag of experiments, Rocket Tube and safety glasses. But if you want to provide an extra party bag, I’ll leave that up to you.

Q) Can I put extra stuff into the party boxes that you supply?

A) No (for public liability reasons) and there may not be extra space in the party boxes.

Q) How much space will Professor JellyBean require to setup?

A) Professor JellyBean requires a minimum space of 3m x 3m. We bring card table sized tables for the kids to work at so it’s easy to fit these in almost anywhere.

Q) Where’s the best place for Professor JellyBean to set up?

A) We recommend an outside area, whether it be on a patio, in a garage, on a deck, out on the grass (please ensure there is shade for the children particularly in summer). We do not recommend a carpeted area.

Q) Can I have the Party at a park/venue?

A) Yes, just make sure there is access to water at the park. If there isn’t, then you will need to provide enough water for the kids to do the experiments. The amount of water depends on the party selected and the number of children expected. I can discuss this with you further. We are no longer able to conduct the parties at a restaurant or similar venue. We can conduct a party at a hired hall. We are also able to set up a party in most outdoors or under-covered area at your home.

Q) What time does Professor JellyBean arrive to set up?

A) Depending on the number of children attending the party, Professor JellyBean will arrive anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes before the experimenting is due to start.

Q) How long do the kids experiment for with Professor JellyBean?

A) They will spend  one hour with Professor JellyBean. Times may vary slightly due to the number of children attending or the weather conditions.

Q) Will it make a mess?

A) Yes, it may be messy but it is a mess that can be cleaned up. Most of the mess is made on our tables which we will clean and take away with us. Some colours may stain sandstone type tiles. It is not recommended to do the experimenting over a carpeted area. An outside shaded area is the most suitable area. If you are having a snow party, any of the snow mixture that ends up on the ground (especially on tiles) is very slippery so we advise you to sweep or cover this up as soon as we remove our tables

Q) Are the ingredients/chemicals used safe?

A) Yes. The Professor JellyBean team is committed to carrying out regular risk assessments to ensure that our fun science parties are conducted safely. All foreseeable hazards are eliminated or closely monitored by following strict policies and procedures. There are no nut, egg & dairy products used. Please let us know if you require full details of the products used.

Q) What if the kids or dogs eat the experiments?

A) It’s completely harmless if they eat it (some of our ingredients are actually food grade ingredients) and more than likely they will spit it out because it tastes disgusting!

Q) The information says that the parties are for children 4 years and older but can younger children join in?

A) Yes definitely. If there are a few extra younger kids (no younger than 2 ½ years of age please) Professor JellyBean can assist them. The Professor JellyBean Science Parties are a wonderful tactile & visual experience for all children.
