and Crafts are great activities to keep guests entertained
at your Star Party. Use some of the suggestions below
or come up with your own space-themed arts and crafts
Place Cards or Placemats
This activity can be as complex or as simple as
you want. Decorate 3-inch x 5-inch cards or construction
paper with a variety of stickers, cut outs from a space
themed coloring book, or the International Space Station
Kid's Activity Sheet: 2-page
format (1.2 Mb PDF). You or your guests can use
crayons or colored pencils to color the placemat. Cover
the placemats with clear contact paper and so they can
be taken home and reused.
Make your own space party hats. Using dark-colored
poster board, cut into a rectangle-shape about 17-25
inches by 12-15 inches. You or your guests can decorate
with metallic crayons, gel pens, glow in the dark paints,
stickers, glitter and so on. Curve the decorated poster
paper around until you have a funnel-shape, one end
is pointed and the other end is the size to fit on top
the head. Glue together and trim the brim to make it
even. Ribbons to tie the hat to the head can be put
on either side of the hat by stapling or using a hole-punch
to put holes on either side of the hat.
Younger guests can use a paper grocery bag,
white if you can get it, to decorate to make their own
spacesuit. Cut the bag to make a vest. Allow the guests
to decorate the vest with markers, paints and glitter.
Let those imaginations run wild!
