What is more exciting than exploring the planets and stars in a rocket ship -- even if it's only in our imaginations?
In this new EcoTarium birthday party, the fun starts with a round of Space Twister, our intergalactic spin on the classic floor game.
After untangling yourselves, you and your guests will then create and decorate your own stomp rocket. Use your imagination and add feathers, stickers, and ribbon to make it your own. When finished, it's time for the final countdown and blast-off! How high can you make your rocket fly? (Launching held indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.)
Everyone takes their rocket home, along with instructions on how to make more to continue the fun!
Consider extending the experience after the party by visiting our digital planetarium to see "Secret of the Cardboard Rocket," a film about two curious kids who turn a cardboard carton into a rocket and blast off to explore the solar system (additional fee applies).
