The great thing about throwing an Outer Space Party is that there are spheres-waiting-to-become-planets and cylinders-waiting-to-become-rockets everywhere! Gumballs, donut holes, paper lanterns and bouncy balls all become, you guessed it, planets. And soda bottles beckon to become rocket ships.

You will need: soda in glass bottles, silver tissue paper, washi tape or other tape, card stock

Directions: Get a soda bottle ready for blast-off with this diy rocket ship. Cut a length of silver tissue paper, a few inches tall. Fringe the bottom edge. Wrap around the bottom edge of the soda bottle and tape in place. Print out a cardstock bottle wrap (a little circle in the middle looks like a portal window). Wrap around the soda bottle, above the fringed silver paper. Then cut out a circle (a few inches in diameter), cut a slit from the outside edge to the center, and then overlap the cut edges (making a cone) and tape in place. Secure the cone to the bottle cap with tape. Done–ready for blast off!

Moon Rock Finding: Spray paint and hide orange “moon rocks” around the yard for the little astronauts to collect.

Alien Spraying: Inspired by this sprinkle themed birthday party, you’ll soon understand that kids go crazy for spray bottles! (Give it a try and include a spray-themed activity at your next party.) Set out bunches of bright, full spray bottles (these are from IKEA), make a sign that reads “The aliens around the yard are grumpy, but become friendly when doused with water. If you see one, spray it!” and then hang printed aliens all around the perimeter of the yard. Don’t worry, it’ll be a huge hit!

Planet Bouncing: Fill three big bins with various sized bouncy balls and signs that read “PLANETS to bounce, throw and kick.” Then let your guests have fun. It’s the perfect party ‘activity’ for guests both young and old (pretty sure the dads will have as much fun as the kids).

Even though these activities are low maintenance to put together, your party guests will have a blast finding moon rocks, spraying aliens and bouncing (and kicking! and throwing!) planets. Sometimes simpler really is better!

Directions: First, paint the foam balls with acrylic paint, diluted with a few drops of water. Once the planets are painted, skewer each one with a toothpick and stand upright to let dry.

To string into a garland, push a needle threaded with embroidery thread through the center of each planet. Line them up in order (with the Sun in the center).  First Pluto (optional, but this is modeled after a vintage space map so we included it), then Uranus, then Jupiter, then Earth, then Mercury, then the Sun, then Venus, then Mars, then Saturn, and then Neptune. Now you’re done with the perfect outer space party planet garland, great for birthday party decor and room decor alike!

Donut rings and donut holes are a natural fit for an Outer Space Party (because they’re shaped like planets, get it?). And most kids love donuts and milk which doesn’t hurt either. Take this brunch up a notch with a buffet of toppings and glazes and your guests will be over the moon.

This outer space party menu wouldn’t be complete with out a “milky way” bar. To please everyone, include chocolate milk and strawberry milk in mason jar drink dispensers and skim, 2% and whole milk in stopper bottles.

You can make your own yummy glazes and buy the donuts a day before the party. It’s simple enough to make fresh homemade donut holes the morning of. And since setting up the milk bar mostly consists of setting out the different milk variations and glasses, this little brunch is super low maintenance–and easy enough to use the menu again and again for other parties. You can also buy the donut bar printables if you’d like.
