Start by creating a mechanical theme with a do-it-yourself banner; cut out gears and wrenches from silver wrapping paper, then string together with fishing line or a thin silver ribbon.
Once the party starts, make sure your kidbots are tuned up and ready to go by making a pit stop at the snack table. There they’ll find all the edible parts fit for a robot – nuts and bolts, circuit boards and robot wiring – no cooking or baking required.
Mix together pretzels, circle- and square-shaped cereals and Smarties for the nuts and bolts; use colourful block candies for circuit boards and licorice as wiring.
When their tank is ready for a refill, make sure they get a swig of jet fuel (Raspberry-Cranberry Lemonade) to keep their motors running and wheels spinning. Cut out gear- and bolt-shaped tags with creative labels and paste them onto bright paper with fun designs.
