By far one of the most action packed birthday parties! We love the Living Arts & Science Center http://www.lasc.com and the boys jumped at the chance to have their birthday party there. The morning of the party I ended up alone with three kids trying to get everything together. We picked up Chick-fli-a party trays I had ordered the day before and went to the party store to have black and teal balloons blown up. Then we discovered road closings and we squealed in right at party time. Luckily, my husband, parents, and other family were waiting on us to carry everything inside.
On the tables, I created a meteor shower with black tables cloths and colored pompoms purchased at the Dollar Tree. I added glow in the dark stars and paper planets I purchased here http://amzn.to/2bEukMC to finish the space feel. This was perfect for only having a few minutes to set up! It was such a cheap and easy touch!
During the party the guests enjoyed a planetarium show, made slime, created an explosion, played in the space explore room, and built rovers to take home. You can find the “rover” kits I used here http://amzn.to/2bNm3aD , they were simple for the kids to assemble and came in individual packages for easy distributing.
I also purchased the following decorations:
I used left over plates, cups, and forks from a party this summer, however, these match the party theme if you need them http://amzn.to/2bwReqn !
