In keeping with the theme of Celebrating Our Boys I thought that I would share some boy themed birthday parties that we have had.
Milo's 5th birthday (last year) had an Outer space theme!
We had rocket ship bubbles, freeze dried ice cream,a rocket ship pinata, and of course a 10 foot metal rocket playhouse?...
Joseph built a rocket ship that "crashed" in the woods.
The cake was a robot. It is was a chocolate cake covered rolled fondant.
I made space rocks by covering little toys with a paste of baking soda and baked them for 30 min until they were hard. We hid them in the woods and each child used metal tongs to gather their rocks and bring them to the space lab. They put their rocks in the bowl of space water (vinegar) and watched them magically bubble and fizz to reveal their toy!
The kids spent an hour shooting air rockets off the deck into the woods!
