Your Child Will Love This Robot Party Theme

Picking a good party theme for your child's birthday can really feel like a challenge, especially if you're getting no ideas from them. Fortunately, we've got your back. This robot party theme is sure to delight.

Robot Party Theme – The Control Center

Cover your front door with foil, and then glue on container lids to make the door look like a robot control panel. Use purple, silver, and black for balloons and streamers. Use a piece of silver cloth as a tablecloth. Use any robot toys your child owns as table toppers and centerpieces. Put out baskets of Legos, tinker toys, and Kleenex to allow your guests to make their own robots. Make a robot centerpiece using empty tin cans and string. You'll need a total of 12 cans. Ten should be soup or vegetable sized, one should be a 5 gallon paint can, and the other a quart paint can.

Cover and sharp edges with black electrical tape after you've removed all the labels from the cans. Punch a hole in the top of each can using a hammer and nail. Tie together two sets of three vegetable cans, and two sets of two cans, leaving 18 inches of extra string at the top. These will be the arms and legs. Thread the strings from three can strings through the bottom of the largest can, and through the hole on the top. Tie a knot on top. Using the hammer and nail, make holes in the side of the can where the arms will go. Attach the sets of two can strings through those holes. Tie the medium sized can to the body to make the head. Use a black marker to make a robot face.

Robot Party Theme – Mechanical Munchies

Use aluminum pans as plates. Serve nuts and bolts snack mix using pretzels, cheese crackers, M&M candies, and cereal. Rename everyday party food with robot themed names. Pizza can become sprocket pizza, potato chips can be computer chips, etc.

To make a robot cake, bake an 8″ round and a 9×13 inch cake. Allow to cool and remove from pans. Put the rectangle cake on a cake plate or foil-covered cookie sheet, with the round cake above it as the head. Use two Twinkies on each side as arms, and three Twinkies each as legs. Frost the cake and all the Twinkies. Decorate the cake with a variety of candy pieces to make a face and control panel.

To make the party easier on you, try to make whatever food you can in advance. Rushing to cook or bake the morning of the party is difficult! A cake can be made the day before and stored in the fridge. Make sure you keep it in a sealed cake container so it stays nice and moist. Pizza can be ordered, or you can buy a frozen pizza and throw it in the oven day-of.

Snack mix can easily be made the day before. Grab all of your ingredients and toss them together, then cover with plastic wrap or put in a sealed container until you're ready to use it. Try to buy as many items on the food list as possible. You have enough on your hands when it comes to prepping the house and decorations!
