Out-of-this-World Food and Drinks

Craft a celestial menu that will delight both kids and adults. Consider serving finger foods and snacks in the shape of stars, moon, and planets. A rocket-shaped birthday cake is a must! You can also have “space juice” (fruit punch) and “alien lemonade” (green-colored lemonade) for the young astronauts.

Entertainment and Activities

Keep the little guests engaged with space-themed activities and games. Set up a craft station for kids to create their own paper plate planets or rockets. Organize a treasure hunt with clues leading to “alien” treasures hidden throughout the venue. For more energetic fun, arrange a mini rocket launch (water bottle rockets) or a moonwalk (bounce house).

Baby’s First Time Capsule

Create a special time capsule that commemorates your baby’s first year. Ask guests to bring letters, small mementos, or wishes for the child’s future. Seal the capsule and promise to open it together on their 18th birthday. It’s a sentimental way to cherish memories and show your child how much they’re loved.

Party Favors

Thank your guests for joining this cosmic celebration with themed party favors. Fill goodie bags with treats, stickers, small toys, and perhaps a custom-made space-themed thank-you note.

Bonus Ideas for Your First Trip Around the Sun Birthday Party

Sun Themed Ideas

  1. Sunshine Decorations: Create a warm and sunny atmosphere with decorations that radiate happiness. Hang golden-yellow and orange balloons all around the party area, and use sun-shaped cutouts to brighten up the walls.
  2. “You Are My Sunshine” Soundtrack: Play the classic song “You Are My Sunshine” during the party to add a touch of sentimental sweetness. You can even consider having a sing-along session with the little guests and their parents.
  3. Sunflower Garden: Set up a mini sunflower garden as a lovely backdrop for photos. Sunflowers symbolize happiness and joy, making them a perfect addition to the celebration.
  4. Sunny Dress Code: Encourage guests to dress in bright and sunny colors, like yellow, orange, and gold, to match the theme. This will add an extra burst of sunshine to the party!
  5. Sun-themed Cake and Treats: Besides the rocket-themed cake, consider having a sun-shaped cake as the centerpiece. You can also serve sun-shaped cookies and cupcakes to complement the theme.
  6. Sun Hat Decorating Station: Provide straw sun hats and a variety of craft supplies like ribbons, stickers, and fabric markers. Let guests decorate their own sun hats, creating a fun and practical party favor.
  7. Sunrise and Sunset Photo Booth: Set up a photo booth with props like sunglasses, sun hats, and sun rays to mimic the sunrise and sunset. This will give the little ones and their parents a chance to capture cherished memories.
  8. Sun-themed Piñata: Surprise the kids with a sun-shaped piñata filled with age-appropriate treats and toys. Let them take turns trying to crack it open and collect the goodies!
  9. Sundial Craft Activity: Teach the kids about how people used sundials to tell time in ancient times. Provide craft materials for the children to create their own mini sundials to take home.
  10. Sun-inspired Food and Drinks: Serve a sunny-themed menu with foods like fruit kabobs with pineapple, orange slices, and banana chunks. For drinks, offer refreshing lemonade or orange-flavored punch.
  11. Sun Ray Cake Topper: Decorate the birthday cake with edible sun rays made of yellow fondant or frosting. It will give the cake a beautiful and radiant touch.
  12. Solar System Sensory Play: Create a sensory play station with materials representing the solar system, like moon sand, star-shaped confetti, and shiny planet balls.

Space-Themed Ideas

  1. Rocket Ship Entrance: Transform the entrance to the party area into a rocket ship with cardboard cutouts, aluminum foil, and colored tape. Let the little guests feel like they’re blasting off into space as they enter the party!
  2. Galactic Photo Booth: Set up a photo booth with space-themed props like astronaut helmets, alien masks, and cosmic capes. Provide a starry backdrop for perfect spacey snapshots.
  3. Space Adventure Storytime: Gather the kids for an exciting space adventure storytime. Read books about planets, astronauts, and intergalactic journeys to ignite their imagination.
  4. Astronaut Training Obstacle Course: Create a mini obstacle course with fun challenges to simulate astronaut training. Include activities like “moonwalking” (walking with big, bouncy steps) and “zero gravity” jumping on a trampoline.
  5. Constellation Craft Station: Have a craft table where kids can make their own constellation art using glow-in-the-dark stickers or paint. They can learn about different constellations and create their own cosmic masterpieces.
  6. Planet Pinata: Hang a planet-shaped pinata filled with space-themed treats and goodies. Let the kids take turns trying to break it open and collect the treasures from the universe.
  7. Alien Egg Hunt: Organize an “alien egg” hunt with small green eggs hidden around the party area. Each egg can contain a small toy or treat, and the kids will have a blast searching for extraterrestrial surprises.
  8. Space-Themed Bingo: Create bingo cards with space-related images like rockets, stars, and planets. Play a few rounds of space-themed bingo, and the winners can receive special space explorer certificates.
  9. Edible Meteorites: Make “edible meteorites” by rolling chocolate truffles in crushed cookies or crushed pretzels. They will look like mini meteors, and the kids will love munching on these sweet treats.
  10. Astronaut Ice Cream Bar: Set up an astronaut ice cream station with different flavors of freeze-dried ice cream. It’s a unique and tasty treat that will make the kids feel like real space explorers.
  11. Moon Rock Toss: Have a moon rock toss game where kids try to toss soft “moon rocks” (foam balls) into a target area. It’s a fun and safe activity that will keep them entertained.
  12. Space-Themed Piñata: Choose a piñata shaped like a rocket ship, a planet, or an alien spaceship to add a spacey twist to the traditional game.
