Astronaut & Space Party Ideas
Space. The final frontier of partying. Children have always had a fascination with space - some of us never grow out of it. Enthral your budding little astronaut with a cool space party. With a little bit of imagination and a few handy decorations, you can achieve blast-off.
Send out your invitations on cards cut into simple spaceship shapes. Take it a step further by adding drawings of little NASA logos or planets. Set the mood by playing mood-setting background music from Star Wars, Star Trek, or 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Ask your little guests to dress up as space-faring future dwellers. Make sure that guests know that they needn't break the bank to come up with cool outfits. Suggest simple ideas such as sports helmets wrapped in foil, shiny jumpers or green painted alien faces.
Have your guests sign in at the door in your specially set up NASA enrolment book. Each enrolee should be handed a badge with their new rank or title (to offset tantrums, it might be worth registering the guest of honour as admiral or whatever the highest rank is).
Hang round paper lanterns over the lights, add rings of foil around then and shazam, you have orbiting planets! For tablecloth, use scrunched-up aluminium foil to create a cool celestial look. You can also make flying saucers by stapling two plastic plates turned upside down and hang them from the ceiling as well. Make sure every available surface is strewn with space adventure confetti. You can also put some glow sticks into balloons, then draw an alien face on them with a permanent marker. Spooky!
For an otherworldly feel, stick glow-in-the-dark stickers of stars, flying saucers and comets on the walls and ceiling. Make sure the windows are blacked out or are covered with dark curtains before turning the lights out for a spacey game of Blind Man's Bluff.
Use the Outerspace cookie cutters to cut out sandwiches and biscuits that look like planets, stars and spaceships. For a special treat, make a fruit salad inspired by the planet Saturn. Buy a large melon, slice it in half, and scoop out the seeds. Then, cut the melon into rings. Stack up a few rings, with the largest one on the bottom and the smallest on top, and then fill the centre with watermelon balls, fruit salad, and/or ice cream.
At the end of the day, hand out space party bags filled with alien lollies or gold chocolate stars.
Be sure to send your guests off to infinity and beyond with a friendly, 'Live well and prosper.'
