Mickey Monday: Mission Space

With 30 days til our Disney trip, we celebrated with a Mickey Monday with a Mission Space theme. We were really hoping that our little 5 year old was going to be tall enough to ride Mission Space this year! My husband even measured him a few times before the trip. He did end up being able to ride, all except one time… in the evening. I guess you really DO shrink during the day!

This was probably the least effort we put into a Mickey Monday this year, but it was still fun! I just tossed up the solar system, some silver star spirals and some star confetti on the black table. I also filled up a ball pit and covered it with a blue shower curtain to make it look like a rocket. I did create some cool drinks by using glow bracelets sandwiched between 2 cups.  IMG_5347IMG_5350

Dinner was a hoagie, shaped like a rocket.

After dinner, the fun continued! IMG_5354 IMG_5359 IMG_5355 We tossed stars into the rings for different amounts of points.

IMG_5358 I had a star lollypop &  a crazy straw in their drinks for fun.

IMG_5370 IMG_5368 I found some challenges online that mimic astronaut training, and our first challenge in Space Training was • Crew assembling training:  putting a puzzle together with gloves on. Next was • Mission Control: Learn to stand on one foot and throw the ring frisbee in a certain direction. J was excited to ring the top of the ball pit “rocket”.

• “Pilot Plank” for one minute. He was just lying on the floor, but he thought he was planking!

After completing a couple more tasks in the Astronaut Mission Training Program, the kids earned their Mission certificates. (sideways pic :p) j mission spaceThey also got a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars, which I had been going to stick all over the ceiling in the dining room.
