Activities / Games
Astronaut Training "Space Crafting"~Creating their own planet/Coloring/ Grabbing a “telescope”- a repurposed paper towel holder "Shooting Star Toss"~ I drew this game on foam picture-board then cut out the holes. Bought yellow & orange bean bags separately. The kids had tons of fun throwing the bean bag “stars” "Space shuttle pinata"~ Piñata swag included milky ways, glitter star bouncy balls, flag mints, plastic paratrooper men, robot finger puppets, robot pencils, lollipops & more candy!!!! "Tandem Planet jump"~I affixed colored, cut planet printouts to foil stars, swapping Pluto with the planet g & had the children two-legged jump from planet to planet. Again, this easy game went over so well, the children lined up two & three times to do it! "Alien hunt"~ Guess the number of rubber aliens in the jar. I just forgot to take out the jar. Oops "Photo id" ~We didn’t get a chance to hang it, nor the time. Oops.
