How to Execute a Rocket Party Successfully for Your Kids
Planning a Rocket Party
Birthdays are special – not only for kids but even for adults. And so are birthday parties. Some people wait throughout the year for this one day when they are showered with love and presents, and not to forget, a lot of attention from friends and family.
However, when it comes to kids, it gets really challenging for parents to plan a party every year with a different theme (well yes, that’s the new trend in town). Brainstorming and coming up with new ideas for a party theme can be tough. So, we are here to help. The new and popular birthday party theme is a rocket party or an outer space party. Though it involves a lot of hard work, because of course, your decoration needs to be out of the world, but kids absolutely love it!
Tips to Plan an Easy Rocket Party
As we mentioned earlier, arranging for a rocket or space-themed party is no mean feat. It requires a lot of planning and arrangements. So, let’s start with invitations. If you have time, it is a good idea to make your own invitations. You can customise the invitations to fit your theme. Some invitation ideas for Space/Rocket-themed parties are:
- Find a photo of the Milky Way Galaxy or the Solar System. You will get plenty online. Download the photo and get printouts of the same. You can write the details of the party on the back.
- The next idea is a little more creative. If you love arts and crafts, you shall have fun doing this. Arrange some coloured papers and design Earth (blue and green chart paper should be enough). Write something interesting about the earth in the front. Something like "Did you know that the Earth revolves around the sun? Come to (your child’s name) birthday party to find out more!" followed by the details of the party.
- The next idea involves assembling cut-outs of anything related to space. It could be anything like space shuttles, astronauts, rockets, etc. You can then write your party details either in the centre or on the back of the card.
The next aspect to be taken care of is the decorations and food. The decorations need to be unique and innovative when it comes to a space-themed or rocket party. However, with options galore, it might get difficult for you to decide what to choose. So, we are here to help you with some innovative ideas:
- You can start the party by playing suitable music to set the mood and theme of the party. Music from mood-setting Star Wars or Star Trek should do the work.
- The next focus must be on the party table decorations. The party table must be decorated to suit the mood perfectly. For example, you can use play dough to make various things like the moon, craters, rockets, etc.
- The aspect that needs your attention next is the party hall decoration. Focus on the walls and ceilings. You can use strings of small white lights and purchase glow-in-the-dark stars and moon to put them around.
- You can also make your own decorations like paper cut-outs of the moon, stars, rockets, etc. and stick them throughout the party area.
- You can also attach cut-outs of planets, stars and moon to helium balloons.
Food: When it comes to food, it is perfectly okay to serve pizza, burgers or hot-dogs, which is certainly much easier for you and saves a lot of time to focus on other things! However, if you have the time and would like to serve some creative and innovative dishes, here are some cool ideas:
- You can make a fruit salad and give it a unique name like "Saturn Fruit Salad." You can cut the fruits in various shapes that resemble your theme. For example, you can make rings and circles with a melon or cantaloupe.
- You can make sandwiches and then use cookie cutters of various shapes to make your sandwiches look like stars or other shapes.
- You can also arrange for bowls of various snacks in various shapes on the table.
- Do not forget to serve Ice Cream and other desserts.
Rocket Party Games
What are parties without games! So, remember to stock up the party hall with enough games and toys. You can arrange for some games like "Pin the Hat on the Martian" or "Pin the Tail on the Donkey." You can also arrange for a space quiz and plan a few space-related questions. The winner can be awarded space-themed goodies. However, the sky is the limit when it comes to these themed parties. So, let your imagination run wild and you will be able to come up with more interesting games ideas for the party.
