Spork loves so many things that it was hard to narrow down a theme for his party this year. Superheroes? Octonauts? Construction? Dinosaurs? When I opened up his summer clothes bin, I found a forgotten brand new robot birthday t-shirt that Grammy had picked up for him on sale a long time ago - perfect! Off to Pinterest to find the right combination of adorable and easy decorations and activities. We actually hosted 2 parties this year, one at home for his birthfamily and one at my new preschool for his buddies.
Invitation - Shutterfly
Dryer vent wreath - inspired from Catch My Party
Art Bot - inspired by Hands On as We Grow. He's just a Solo cup with markers attached. I turned on the Nugget's HexBugs and slipped them underneath to make him vibrate and spin.
Robot Party Hats - inspired by Handmade Charlotte. Pre-cut paper shapes, glue sticks, metallic party hat pack from Target, and silver pipecleaners.
Favors - mini robot claws from Target's party section doubled as a game - pick up the foil balls!
Food for Kids' Party
Nuts and Bolts - Honey Nut Cheerios (Spork's favorite cereal) and mini stick pretzels
Microbytes - Fresh fruit skewers
Computer Chips - Cheez-Its, tortilla chips with homemade guac
Battery Cells - chicken nuggets
Refueling Station - lemonade, water, iced tea
I made wedge salads for the adults but won't do that again - too hard to cut with plastic flatware!
We sent everyone home with face painting, the robot arm, and a party blower served in a can robot (nuts for eyes, a paperclip for a mouth).
