sky with white strings of lights inside and outside.

Star Party Activities
Set up a campfire outside and use it to roast marshmallows, hotdogs and make Smore's. Set up lawn chairs in a circle around the fire and star gaze, tell stories and sing campfire songs. You can also make a pretend fire inside using red and orange construction or butcher block paper for the flames and real logs. For star gazing inside use a constellation viewer that creates the constellations on the ceiling.
Make or buy a star shaped Piñata. Have small bags available for the kids to pick up the candy and toys that drop. Set up instructions and tips for a party Piñata.
Star Party Games
Play this game at night when it is dark. Choose a person to be "it" and give them a flashlight. They close their eyes and count to 100 while everyone else hides. The child with the flashlight then searches for the hidden players. When the person who is it finds a hidden player they must shine the flashlight on them and call out their name. After this point there are several variations in how to play.
1. The child with the flashlight gives the found child the flashlight and they before the new "it".
2. The child who was found has to go to a designated spot and stay there until the game is over or he/she is tagged out by another child who is hiding.
3. The children who are tagged stay with "it" and help find the rest of the players. You can give out extra flashlights or just use one.
The person who is tagged first becomes the new "it" for the next round.
