Themed favors take a regular space party and make it out-of-this-world. There are several options that relate to outer space. Check out these options to find one that will work for your space party favors.
You can’t go wrong with glow-in-the-dark stars. The small plastic stars are designed to go on the ceiling. At night, they glow gently to make the ceiling look like a starry sky. Buy a packages for each child. They usually come with adhesive. If you divide the packages between the kids, you might need to get some extra poster putty to include for hanging.
Let the guests use their imaginations to blast off into space with a toy rocket. The kids can play with the toy rockets at the party and when they get home. You can usually find some small, inexpensive plastic rockets at the dollar store or in the toy section if you’re on a limited budget.
Another option is to incorporate the alien theme in the party favors. Look for little toy aliens to hand out. Or buy inflatable aliens as party favors. Or get green balloons filled with helium. Draw alien faces on them and hand them out as party favors.
Encourage the party guests to explore space from the ground with this party favor. Give each guest a simple handheld telescope. Look for some at party stores or discount stores.
Kids love slime. You can often find little containers of “slime” play dough. It is colored but slightly see-through. Make your own label that says “space slime” or “alien slime” to make it more fitting to the theme.
Book or Constellation Map
Why not make the party favors educational? Head to the book store and find a kids’ book about space. Buy a copy for each guest. Or find a poster of constellations or a smaller constellation map for each guest. The kids can use the books to learn more about space and identify constellations on their own.
