Almost a year ago now my youngest daughter turned 10, and she requested a Space-themed party. I have to admit I could have put a bit more effort into the Space theme — it was limited to a ‘spacey’ invitation and a few party games — but you know how it is. I’d already purchased pretty pink and gold decorations so we had a combination of pink and gold splendor with a little bit of Space thrown in for fun.
I created these cards to use as a party favour along with a small bar of chocolate in between each layer of pass the parcel. The cards were printed double-sided so they had a space joke on one side and a would you rather question on the other. In the past, I’ve put novelty erasers, a small bottle of bubbles or cheap plastic toys in between the layers but I always feel like I’m fighting a war on kid-clutter in our home and I decided I didn’t want to add to the clutter in anyone else’s house. Also, the cheap plastic toys break almost as soon as you hand them out, so I find them wasteful to the wallet and bad for the environment.
I worried that the cards would look cheap or boring to the kids, but they went down way better than I expected! The questions generated discussion from the girls and they had some very clever answers. The jokes mostly made them groan but I think a couple of kids laughed once or twice. You know kids’ jokes, they’re a bit like Dad jokes once kids get older, but I think younger kids would find these hilarious.
