nothing better than the feeling that the party continues after
it's over. You can be sure that the kids won't forget their magical
journey into outerspace when you give them space-related loot
bags and giveaways. Clockwise from the left:
When searching for items for a spacey loot bag, anything and everything
goes. Go to a place such as a dollar store, and look for all kinds
of fun stuff.
- paper bag
bubble gumball packages
spaceships (mini UFO's)
- scary bulging
- alien keychain
stickers (stars, etc.)
Fill the folding pouch with gumballs and suckers, seal it
with star stickers and put it in the paper bag. Add all of the
Place reflective paper on top and hang a pair of space-style glasses
on the side of the bag. Don't forget to write each kid's name
on the bag!
Boy Gift (second from left):
When it's your kid's turn to be the guest at a space boy party,
you'll want to put together a groovy gift. Here's one that looks
like it came from another planet:
- space boy
Wrap a piece of decorative ribbon at each end of the packaged
Place it into the cellophane, along with some confetti.
Roll it up in the cellophane as if it were a space cracker.
Tie the sides up with reflective string, opening the ends of the
string to create a "fanned out" effect.
Chain Paper Curls (second from right):
Here's an instant, inexpensive treatment for the house, or your
kid's birthday table:
strips of metallic paper
(you can also use tape, or glue)
Join each strip of paper together to form a circle. Link them
together to form a chain.
Space Antennae Gift (far right):
Keeping with the space age theme, the perfect gift can be easy
to find; you just have to put your feelers out:
- red tinsel
(or the colour of your choice)
- two sparkling
fiber pipe cleaners
- two pompoms
Fill pouch with tinsel. Add alien figure into pouch.
Run disks along pipe cleaners and stick two pipe cleaners through
holes in top of pouch so that they stick out like antennae.
Tie them together in the back and cap each of them off with pompoms.
