Wondering how to have a space party? This is how you 'planet'!

Intergalactic Invitations

Before hosting your space party, you'll need to sort out your invitations. Luckily for you, there's so much choice nowadays. So whether you want fun alien invitations, or designs focusing on rockets and planets, you're sure to find what you're after. How to Throw a Space Themed Party for Kids - Personalised Kids Birthday Invitations - Rocket Featured Product: Personalised Kids Birthday Invitations - Rocket Our 'Rocket' invitations make a popular choice for space parties. Plus, with matching thank you cards and more available, it's so easy to keep a consistent theme.

Dark Decorations

Decorating for a space themed party is a lot of fun, and is a great excuse to get creative with the kids. Using cardboard and paper, you can easily create planet decorations to pin up on the walls at your venue. Alternatively, you can also buy a lot of removable decals that will do the job, too. For an easy option, fill the room with brightly coloured helium balloons.

Turn the lights off in your venue, and turn your projector on to have stars light up the room! It sets the atmosphere so well, and is sure to wow the kids. Plus it's a great investment if your child loves outer space. If you are having your party in the dark, then why not turn it into a disco party? Hand out glow sticks, and turn up the tunes. Have fun prizes for those with the best dance moves - maybe the moon walk!

Celestial Costumes

An 'astronauts and aliens' theme works so well for a space party, and lets the kids decide what outfit they would prefer. Other costumes include stars, rockets, and planets - you can really get as creative as you wish.

Space Snacks

For your party, you're going to want out-of-this-world snacks! Stick to traditional party food, but then add a fun twist.

A cake that looks like a planet make an amazing centrepiece, whilst cupcakes that look like every different planet make for such a fun afternoon of baking.

They really add to your theme. Alternatively, rocket lollies are perfect for summer parties!

Galaxy Games

There are a lot of fun space-related games that are sure to be a 'blast'! Planet hunt Much like an Easter egg hunt, a planet hunt can be so much fun. Hide toy planets around your venue or your garden and have the kids go on a hunt for them! Whoever finds the most planets wins a prize - anything that you wish. Ring toss A classic game of ring toss can be personalised with a space-related twist. Have the rings thrown at planets or rockets for a fun theme. Rocket Ship Craft Get creative with the kids and set up a station for them to build their own rockets! You could have a prize for the most detailed, funniest, and largest rockets.

Flying Favours

You can fill them with whatever you like. but most people fill them with sweets that match their colour scheme.
