Robot Party!

For his 7th birthday, Ronan decided to celebrate with a robot party at our house. 

I made the invitations using a digi stamp from Maureen Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil and the sentiment is from Cricut's Robot Party cartridge.  I colored the image with Copic Sketch markers.

We played "pin the gears on the robot."  A game I made using a piece of poster board, a variety of cardstock, and various parts & pieces from the Robot Party cartridge, as well as some different shapes from my punches.

These are the cupcake toppers I made, also from the Robot Party cartridge.  I layered the circle designs, then added lollipops to the backs with glue dots.  We thought the sparkly silver sugar crystals looked "roboty."  

The kids all seemed to have a good time.  It was pretty hot, as it tends to be on July 13th, so I kept them well supplied with freezie pops and cold juice pouches in between games of Red Light - Green Light (with the twist of having to walk like a robot) and Robot Knock Down.

Now we have to switch "gears" and start thinking about what to do for Shannon's Medieval-themed birthday party in October.  :)
