Outer Space Birthday

"Outer Space Birthday" from stephmodo.

When I have kids, I want them to go through an outer space phase (after a dinosaur phase, and before a secret agent/spy phase!). Surely that's not asking too much. If the stars do align (haha!), I'd love to steal some ideas from this birthday party that stephmodo threw for her son. Vintage outer space stamps, a space flashcard banner, games like "Pass the Plutonium" and "Hot Potato" (with an inflatable astronaut!), astronaut ice cream, moon t-shirts... sounds like a fun party to me.

Other ideas:
  • Decorating the table with constellations
  • Scavenger hunt for glow-in-the-dark stars
  • Rocket launch game--with foam rocket slingshots
  • Comet toss with velcro
  • Ring around Saturn ring toss
