With Halloween right around the corner I thought it be fun to share some fun games and activities to play at a Outer Space Theme Party with your Girl Scout Troop. Just have everyone come dressed as something that represents space. You will get a variety of costumes if you keep it generic: astronauts, aliens, and planets for sure.  This post is full of games and songs to play at your event.

Add the following activities into your party:

Games, Songs and Crafts For Party

Space Bowling 

This can be played in a number of different ways. The thing we did was bought the Rocket Ship Cardboard tent for kids from Oriental trading. It was part decoration, part activity to fill time when we were setting up and then used in a game.  Bring crayons and markers with you and have the girls color the rocket ship, then to play game set it up at one end of room. Give the girls planets and have them roll them to try to get into the rocket ship. Have it as a contest to see who can get the most in. You can get the planets and the rocket ship by going here

Alien Toilet Paper Game

Give each team 2 rolls of toilet paper and tell them they have 10 minutes to create the best alien. Choose one girl to be the model. At end have leaders judge the best alien but best part is of course taking the pictures.

Alien Tails

Cut Pieces of string that are long enough to tuck in the bottom of each girls pants and hang on the floor. The girls will each have a alien tail. On go they will run around and try to step on each others tail, removing the tail from the girls pants. If you loss your tail you are out. Continue till there is only one girl remaining with a tail. 

Space Walk

Put your girls into relay teams and give each girl a balloon. They must put the balloon between their legs and space walk to other end of room. Once at other end they must sit on their balloon and pop it. Run back to next girl who will do the same. First team to complete relay first wins.

Do you know your planets? 

How well do you know the planets in our solar system? Do you know them in the right order? You can print and make your own planet images and words or get the magnet set from oriental trading and save yourself some time. We had the girls race against each other on teams putting the planets in the correct order with correct labels. This is probably not great for younger kids that cant read, but they could do the visual part of it getting the planets in the right order.  You can get the planets magnets by going here

Space Race

Sing a Song

This video is one of my sons favorite songs, and he is only 2 1/2 and learned the planets and what order they go in using this song.  So this could be a great additional to your party maybe sing the song with your girls. Here is the video and lyrics

Lyrics to song:

I’m closest to the sun
I’m Mercury Mercury

I’m the brightest in the sky
I’m Venus Venus

I’m a Red planet
I’m Mars Mars

And I’m your planet
I’m Earth Earth

We are the planets big and round
Watch us happily fly around
We are the planets big and round
Watch us happily fly around

I’m the largest planet
I’m Jupiter Jupiter

I’m the planet with the Rings
I’m Saturn Saturn

I have 27 moons!
I’m Uranus Uranus

I am made of Gas
I’m Neptune Neptune

We are the planets big and round
Watch us happily fly around
We are the planets big and round
Watch us happily fly around.


More Resources For My Leader Readers 

I get asked a lot what other resources are out there on the internet for Leaders.  I have done some digging over the years and have used many of the resources myself. I compiled a list of some great companies that sell patches, programs and also other bloggers offering amazing resources that may fit your needs even better than my site did.   Checkout what I found.
