Play Dough Recipe
1 Cup White Flour
1 Cup Warm Water
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar
2 Teaspoons Cooking Oil
1 3oz Pack Jelly
Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously until it thickens into a ball of dough.
Once it has finished cooking, place the dough onto a floured cutting board and wait for it to cool.
Once its cool ( at least 20-30 minutes), knead it, adding in flour until it is no longer sticky ( about 1/2 cup).
Cover each ball with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out.
Don’t forget the Robot Cake pops or Robopops. How cute are these? And they were delicious too – full of red velvet cake.
Cake pops – Inspired by galaxies and planets. Lots of cosmic goodness!
Hirshey Kisses stickers available from our SunshineParties Printable Set . The Hershey Kisses in their silver tinfoil wrappers were dotted around the paper rockets on the table as “rocket fuel”!
A jar full of blue jelly beans or “Rocket Dust”! Food Labels available from our SunshineParties Printable Set , just use a little imagination with the food names! x
Flying Saucer sweets – these melt in your mouth and have sherbert inside. You can get these from most online retro sweet stores.
We couldn’t resist designing some mini cake bunting for the cupcakes.

Pin the Engine on the Rocket Party Game for the kids. Simply blindfold the child when it’s their turn and whoever pins the “Engine” closest to the bottom of the rocket wins.
Create memories – Place the Robot in front of your child’s face and take their picture…too cute!!
And here is the Birthday Boy himself, all dressed up with his rocket launcher back pack made out of old plastic bottles, spray painted silver and red and orange crepe paper attached to the bottom!
