  • Decorations you could cut out soem star and planet shapes, and decorate them with glitter, and hang them from the ceiling or on the wall. Take some aluminum foil and make it into balls, and hide them, take them on an adventure to find 'moon rocks'. You can hide small candy, or prizes inside them too. If you have a lot of space, you can make obstacles, out of cardboard boxes, sheets, and hula hoops, to make it more exciting. An outside game, you could cut out aliens from boxes, and have them go 'hunting' with water guns. If youre going to serve lunch, You could have Shuttle dogs (hot dogs), Moon Nuggets (chicken nuggets), Meteorites (grapes, or cut fruit), and alien slime (green jello). And you can send them home with some astronaut goodie bags, you can add things like, Space sticker sheets, small rocket ship toys, disc shooter toys, and glow in the dark stars. Hope all this helps! And good luck!
