  • if you have a climber or playscape you can make it into the space station. Have the kids make and decorate space helmets out of.... whatever you can find around the house, maybe some paper mache ones you make ahead of time? Do a scavenger hunt for aliens, planets, spaceships, etc.. Look at resale places for a mini moon bounce (I got one off craigslist for $25 that holds 5 kids) or look into renting one, they're not incredibly expensive.. let ya know if I think of more

  • Thanks! These are awesome so far! Maybe we will make the hats and do a spaceship. I'm on the prowl on CL too!

  • Go to local ice cream place Baskin Robins etc. ask for the round cardboard containers that they put the ice cream in. Cut a square out of one side and let the kids decorate them to be space hemets. We did this in my preschool was a huge hit.
