With the space shuttle launching again this afternoon, it’s time to put out another call for all astronauts! If you’re looking for a fun theme for a child’s birthday, try throwing a space theme party!
Make your home look like the surface of a distant planet with some fun and festive party supplies. A space banner with stars, astronauts and your child’s name is a great way to get the festivities started. You can hang up mylar balloons in the shapes of stars to bring outer space inside your home!
For a fun activity, hang up a rocket-ship shaped pinata for the guest of honor to smash open with her fellow astronauts!
If your child loves Star Wars, buy some light sabers, cutout standees of their favorite characters or costume pieces from the classic movies.
A cake in the shape of a rocket, alien or astronaut space helmet is sure to be a big hit. Make sure to serve up the sweet treat on astronaut-themed plates.
To tie the whole bash together, hang up streamers of black and purple. Then get ready to blast off for a space party that is out of this world!
