I've spent snippets of evenings and weekends during the last few weeks getting ready for Soren's 4th birthday party, held last Sunday, and in my mind, a successful fete!
My mother-in-law made this fabulous robot cake and cupcakes for the party. It turned out so cool, and you can find out how to make it Betty Crocker (it even includes an instructional video).
I stuffed the goodie bags with some snacks and robot t-shirts that I had screen printed for the kids.
my screen printing tutorial for them HERE.
Another fun thing I made was a cardboard robot with a cutout in the head for the kids to pose in. I used boxes, electrical tape, and other stuff we had around the house. Soren enjoyed helping me with this.
Pocketbooth app for the iPhone and had the kids pose, photobooth-style. Fun stuff!
robot banks online (cheap too, under 20 bucks for a dozen) and had the kids paint them. They loved it!
special paints for glass and ceramic, which should hold up well on these ceramic banks.
Tombots and Homemade Robot fonts.
Here are the images I designed for the food tags, which you can right click and save, then mount onto colored paper or cardstock:
