Are your kiddos fascinated by Space? Ever since my husband and I took our family to Kennedy Space Center a few years back, my children have been really interested in the prospect of exploring the Universe.
A special thank you goes out to Fox Home Ent Insiders for providing my family with a party kit as well as an Ice Age Collision Course Blu-Ray DVD to host a Family Movie Night! Opinions expressed are mine alone.
In fact, my son has been back a couple times to explore the exhibits, and my daughter wants to become a “Dancing” Astronaut.
I really love their enthusiasm for science and when I was given the opportunity to Host a Space Themed party inspired by ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE, I was excited to create treats and activities for my family.
About ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE:
Your favorite ICE AGE heroes are back and cooler than ever in this all-new animated adventure that’s mammoth-sized fun for the whole family!
Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe, where he accidentally triggers a series of cosmic events that threaten the Ice Age world.
Hosting your own “Out of this World” Party? Here is a fun Scrat in Space Coloring Sheet to print for the kiddos as well!
Now the entire herd—including Buck, Manny, Ellie, Sid and Diego—must work together on a hilarious journey filled with nonstop action and colorful new characters, in order to survive the global Scrat-tastrophe!”
We had so many fun space related activities to entertain the kiddos that we made a weekend of it.
I first started off with making Space Inspired Popcorn Mix and putting it in black treat bowls decorated with star stickers I got from a craft store. Details on how to make the treat are below.
Space Inspired Popcorn Mix (Makes 5 Bowls)
1 Popped Bag of Popcorn
2 Bags of Little Bites Muffins
5 Packages of Single Serve Sixlets
Pop a full size bag of popcorn and then fill up each of the bowls. There will be half of a bag left, that can be used to make another batch.
Then cut up the Little Bites to form Asteroids and place those on top as well as the Sixlets to form planets. And speaking of Asteroids, be sure to watch the cool video from Neil deGrasse Tyson – How Do Asteroid Belts Form?
I also set up a craft with Colorful Chalk and Black construction paper.
Plus our black table cloth is erasable, so I decorated it with planets and shooting starts.
Then it was time to watch the movie.
Each grabbed a bowl of the Space Inspired Popcorn Mix and got under an Ice Age Blanket to watch.
We have seen the previous films, so the kiddos enjoyed seeing these characters again.
Plus, they got to meet new characters including a Yoga loving Llama and a very pretty and Mysterious Sloth (Sid’s love interest).
There were plenty of funny antics in ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE especially with Scrat in Space, and we got to see how a family of Mammoths faced the idea of growing up and possibly growing apart.
I saw lots of smiles and all 3 children were interested and very entertained throughout the show.
We then headed outside to try out the Baking Soda and Vinegar powered Rocket. The kiddos liked watching me fail at this experiment.
We even brought out our existing Telescope to get a closer look.
