This week we have been preparing for an upcoming rocket themed birthday party for Bear who is turning 4.  We made some quick and simple rocket invitations and popped a magnet on the back of each rocket so that the recipients could just pop them straight onto the fridge.*  To add a bit of fun and colour we popped a handful of sequin stars in each envelope.  Hoping there’ll be no annoyed parents with sequins all over the carpet…
In more party prep, we’ve been making a batch of ‘space playdough‘, using black food dye and glitter…
… and some green alien slime.  Come back tomorrow for the recipe.  Seriously cool stuff.

Not sure yet whether these will be party favours or a party activity.  Maybe both.  I’m also keen to make our own moon sand.  I’ll let you know how I go.

Stay tuned for more rocket party prep over the next week or so, along with a number of other things I’ve been promising like more simple handmade gifts for girls and more easy peasy recipes.

*Cutting up old advertising magnets from the last time the plumber visited does the trick, then use double sided tape to attach.

    Looks like fun preparation! I love the black glitter play dough. And I&#39;ve been thinking how much I want to make slime, we used to make it all the time in england, but I don&#39;t think the boys remember it too well, such brilliant stuff!
