So as many of you know, I have been planning Cole's Bday for awhile now. I decided forever ago that he should have a space party. I have had all the planning and mental images stored up for months now, and here I am a week and a half away and the plans have to become real.
So for several days now I have been gathering, creating, cutting, glueing, drawing, coloring, etc. I have finished the walkie talkies that will go on their space utility belt (but the binoculars and alien catcher have yet to be made), the alien match cards have been drawn (but not copied for the poster), the rocket packs are hot glued together (but still need the arm straps on them).
Just so that you can all say..."this is your own fault why are you whining?" I am going to give you a little run down on what I still have to do!
trace, cut out and hang stars
finish utility belts
glue and cover binoculars
make alien bags
convert my two-seater jogging stroller into a moon rover with foil
hang black plastic to make our basement space
hang white lights for extra stars
make astronaut certificates
make alien poster
make astronaut file folders, for their test to be astronauts
finish jet packs
cut, assemble, and paint boxes into astronaut helmets
get simple space info for space school
build a rocket cake
make ice cream aliens
make and assemble goodie bags
...and anything else I forgot
I know what you are thinking, I am crazy and I brought this on myself! I can't say that I disagree with you. SO yes, Houston I have a problem. AND Space my really be my final frontier! PS no comment on the cheesy space one liners.
