Fun In Space
How do you keep a bunch of Astronauts entertained? Well, you cannot take them to Outer Space, so bring it to them. You can find lots of party activities for this budding group of explorers. As a fun party activity why not color your own space magnets. It's always fun for kids to color and this is a project they can take home with them as a keepsake of this fun day.
You can also find some Space Fact Cards so your little birthday party guests can learn some new facts about Space, Astronauts and the Planets. Space Lava is perfect for these Astronauts in Training. It's putty like foam material that is moldable. Your guests can mold it and sculpt it into any shape they can imagine. This putty never dries out according to Birthday in a Box. Sounds like some Out of this World Putty fun!
Here's an unique party dessert idea...Space Ice Cream. You can buy the same ice cream that the Astronauts of NASA enjoy while on Space Missions. Add some Space Bubbles and an Outer Space favor box and your party will "Blast Off" with fun and laughs for your guests.
You have got to take a look at the favor box for this party theme. It's unbelievable. It's so full of fun items, you would think your guests were getting ready for a Mission in Space.
There are actually two party favor boxes for this party theme. One just didn't cover all the fun accessories you can give to your party guests. One favor box costs a little more than the other, but it is filled with some great stuff including an inflatable space shuttle! If your party budget can afford it, this is a wonderful, fun filled favor box.
Our Outer Space Deluxe Party Box includes everything you need to throw the perfect party for your little one and 7 guests! Contents include full tableware for 8, a variety of Outer Space party decorations, and birthday candles.
One set of Outer Space deluxe favors, favor bag, crinkle paper and twist tie.
To The Stars Birthday Cake Ideas
You will want your birthday cake to match your exciting party theme, so use a Star Shaped cake pan to make your own cake. A star shaped cake will fit your theme perfectly. You can write "Houston, We Have Lift Off For Billy's Birthday!" . You can also make some star shaped cookies and let your guests decorate them with some icing and candies.
Space Party Games
Birthday in a Box has foam Space Rocket Slingshots. These foam rockets are great fun, the kids can launch their shuttle rockets safely with an elastic loop.
There's always the twist on an old classic party game, Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Pin the Tail on the Comet sounds like a fun party game that you can make yourself. If you have a poster of the Solar System you are willing to donate to the Space Program Cut out some circles in colored construction paper and use them to Pin the Planet to the Solar System.
If you really want to "Break the Fun Barrier" rent a Moon Walk for the day. A Moon Walk is an inflatable structure that the kid can go and jump around in. It's bouncy and lots of fun. You might have a hard time trying to organize other party games with one of these around.
