The new Start Trek movie has stirred up tons of excitement and renewed the sci-fi devotion to new levels. So, let us proclaim, “Beam me up, Scotty…”… to the coolest Star Trek Birthday Party around!
Create your invitations to look like the SS Enterprise and write something along the lines of “Report for duty at (time of party) for Commander (child’s name)’s regulation birthday party.” There are some ultra slick-looking pre-made invitations you can get, too. If desired (and it will make things more exciting), encourage your guests to dress as their favorite Star Trek character.
With some cardboard and markers, make up the characteristic Star Trek insignia for each of your guests. As they arrive, have them check in at the “Command Station” for their badge and their assignment (chosen activity). Set up a rousing game of Star Trek Trivia to get the mental juices flowing and afterwards, support the creative side by having them make their own Starfleet ship with modeling clay. Naturally, a party favor box filled with goodies like glow necklaces or Pop Rocks will ensure the memorable experience continues.
From what I hear, Vulcans eat with their hands, so let’s aim for that goal! Chicken nuggets, fruit skewers, Space-wiches (sandwiches cut into star shapes), and Moon Pizzas (pizza toppings on top of an English Muffin) are all foods that should please the space-accustomed appetite.
Some of us may not know much about Star Trek, but we can all enjoy the sci-fi allure with a fun Star Trek Birthday Party!
