From the moment they're born, kids are fascinated by the wonders of the universe. If your little one is a budding astronaut, a space-themed party is a perfect way to celebrate their big day. And the best part is a space party theme is perfect for any age, from toddlers to teens. Here are some ideas to help you plan the ultimate space-themed celebration for every age, starting at 1:
1st Birthday: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
A Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star theme is perfect for your littlest astronaut's first birthday. Decorate with lots of stars, moons, and planets. Serve fruit cut into star shapes. Set up a photo booth with a starry background and let guests take pictures with the birthday boy or girl. For a fun party activity, set up a sensory play station with star-shaped toys. And for a sweet keepsake, have guests make a wish upon a star for your little one and write it on a star shaped note.
2nd Birthday: "Two Infinity and Beyond" or "Two the Moon"
For a second birthday party, take your little astronaut on a journey to infinity and beyond, or to the moon. For "Two Infinity and Beyond," decorate with gold and silver stars, a rocket ship piñata, and a "two" banner. For "Two the Moon," decorate with moon and star balloons, an astronaut photo booth, and a "two the moon" banner. Serve snacks like rocket-shaped sandwiches, fruit kabobs, and cupcakes decorated like planets.
3-5 Years Old: "Space Adventure"
For a space adventure-themed party, set up a space station with activities like a planetarium projector, space shuttle play tent, and an astronaut dress-up station. Decorate with a galaxy of star balloons, planet cutouts, and a "blast off" banner. Serve rocket fuel (aka juice) and "space food" like freeze-dried fruit and astronaut ice cream. For the cake, make a rocket-shaped cake or a constellation cake.
6-8 Years Old: "Mission to Mars"
For a mission to Mars-themed party, set up a mission control center with activities like a Mars rover obstacle course, a rocket-building station, and a planetarium show. Decorate with red and orange balloons, planet cutouts, and a "Mission to Mars" banner. Serve snacks like cheese and cracker moon rocks and Mars-inspired cupcakes. For the cake, make a Mars terrain cake or a solar system cake.
9-12 Years Old: "Galactic Odyssey"
For a galactic odyssey-themed party, set up a galactic trading post with activities like a Space themed movie theater, a alien encounter themed escape room, and a starry night telescope viewing party or DIY Planetarium show. Decorate with a starry sky backdrop, planet cutouts, and a "Galactic Odyssey" banner. Serve snacks like galaxy popcorn and constellation cupcakes. For the cake, make a galaxy cake or a black hole cake.
