not put up some decorations that will also double as game
prizes! If youve opted to play a couple of games during
the party (i.e. at the seventh inning stretch, etc.) then
try this: Order some Houston Astros posters and hang them
up throughout the party area. The first person to win a game
(whether its a score prediction game youve created
or baseball Bingo) gets first pick of poster on the walls.
By the end of the party, youve given away your posters
and your party guests have party favors to take home with
them! See below for online poster resources.
some games involving aiming a whiffle ball. Whiffles balls
are fun because they are light and change direction very easily.
Setting up a simple target to aim at in your backyard should
do the trick, though if you have a larger space consider allowing
the players to hit the ball with a plastic bat. If you are
choosing the latter, make sure that the target is larger as
its much more difficult to hit your target hitting the
ball with the bat.

fun invitations, consider buying empty bags of popcorn or
peanuts at your local restaurant supply store. Simply write
all of the party information on the bags, or put them inside
the bags. If you are able to, consider filling the bags with
what you can to borrow a baseball referee shirt to wear for
your party. This is especially effective if your party is
on game day and there are opposing loyalties!
the colors of the Houston Astros are brick, sand, black and
white, consider getting these colors of construction paper
and creating a paper chain for decorating. This is an activity
that the kids can even get in on (and take over if youre
) They are simple to create - you can get creative,
too, on your color arrangement. For example you can alternate
colors or have several links of one color before changing
to a new color.
