Re: Space Birthday Ideas Needed
you can make a rocket cake pretty easily, using a couple of bread loaf pans and cutting the corners for triangles to add as the top and wings of the rocket. for other food, you could make (or buy) doughnut holes and call them meteors. something fun (and a little messy) would be to make star sugar cookies and the kids can decorate them. OR if you don't want too much sugar, make a bunch of sandwiches and use a star cookie cutter for those.
for games, you can ahead of time make planets (maybe using balls wrapped in paper, or even apples or oranges made to look sort of like the planets) and play a scavenger hunt game. you can play a version of "duck duck goose", but instead have the kid count down from 10 and say "blast off!" and that kid has to jump up and chase the "astronaut."
