MomCo is all about moms meeting up and making lifelong friendships. We provide moms with a play date theme each month to give you inspiration and to make things fun. We also love to give things away to moms, so we have giveaways that go along with these themes too!
The theme for this month is a Space Play Date!
Any mom who creates or attends a space themed play date on MomCo by October 28, 2016 is eligible to win a giveaway from Bookroo. Read more at the bottom of this post about how to enter and details.
How elaborate or simple you choose to make your play date is completely up to you & your personal style! It’s all about bringing moms together for some time that they can hangout while the kids play! You can choose to go all out with a space themed party extravaganza or it can be a simply meet up at a local park with your mama friends. In addition to a general outer space theme you can choose to make it astronaut inspired, alien themed, or even all about stars and constellations. Just have fun & get inspired by some of the crafts, snacks, and decor we have provided for you below.
Whether you are choosing to host your play date indoors or out, there are tons of ways to get the kids involved and having a “blast!”
Decorations at you play date are not necessary, but if you want to go all out and make it a real party then here are some out of this world ideas:
Cut out stars and rockets to be added on top of a black backdrop!
Create your own Rocket out of cardboard boxes!
Create Planet Garlands to hang up inside or out!
Creating food inspired by outer space is even more fun than we could have anticipated. Here are a few that we think you should definitely try at your play date:
Fruit & Marshmallow Rockets
Jello Space Themed Cutouts
Milky Way Bar
Rocket Shaped Sandwiches and Cookies
Rocket Fuel Drinks/Punch
There are many activities for a space theme. You can do outdoor or indoor activities. Some include:
