This year for Archer's birthday he decided he wanted to have a robot party. What a great idea! So, of course my mind got working and I started researching ideas on the internet. Some ideas I "stole," but most I came up with on my own. It was a blast!!!
Computer chips = bags of chips
Nuts and Bolts = cheerios, stick pretzels, and M&Ms
Memory Cells = carrot sticks
Fuel Cakes = cornbread muffins
Motor Oil = drinks
***I didn't name everything I served, just a few of them...
Of course, I had to make robot cupcakes. I just love how the robot turned out for Archer's special cupcake.
I started the party by reading the book If I Had a Robot to the kids. They loved it. Then...
we headed into the garage (b/c it was supposed to rain) to make our OWN ROBOTS. I had collected boxes, toilet paper rolls, old tea lights, etc..., to turn into these fun creations. They turned out so cute.
Next, it was time for our own spin on the classic birthday game: Pin the... Antennae on the Robot.
We saved the BEST FOR LAST. We had a special visitor come to the party... Mr. Robot (aka Daddy). The kids couldn't believe it. Archer was on Cloud 9...he couldn't stop laughing. He came in and talked to the kids, let them ask him questions, gave each of them a slinky, and then took individual pictures with them.
What an unforgettable party! Happy Birthday, Arch!
