I took Emma to the craft store to find a suitable activity for her birthday party, and was impressed when she picked out these robot cut-outs. They were perfect for the group of kids we were having over – seven of her friends plus five younger brothers and two little sisters. Seventeen kids in our not-quite-1500 square foot house, if you count my three, and much too cold to go out! I covered the table with paper, and the kids had a blast coloring and accessorizing with jewels and stickers. Don’t you love the heart jewel eyes in the above photo?
I love this photo of my two little girls decorating their robots! And Johnny was equally focused:
I especially loved how each child’s personality came through in their robot. Notice how Johnny colored his robot primarily green, with lots of ball stickers waiting to be added…
And Emma’s accessory-loving friend A had a highly-bejewelled robot!
Doesn’t Emma’s robot look beautifully happy?

Love this craft! May I ask, where did you find the robot template?
We found them already cut out at Michaels.
They turned out so cute! What a fun birthday craft, I could see that working for a Star Wars party too.
How fun! A unique thing to decorate.
I’m very proud of her for choosing robots!
Emma has great taste :) I am blown away that you hosted a party for 17 kids in such a small house!
Cool! That looks like a lot of fun.
“Beautifully happy” is an apt description of both the robot and its birthday-girl creator! :) These pictures make me want to create a robot, too! :)
I love those cut out shapes. I can see why they had fun. The stickers and gems are key. My daughters would have bedazzled the heck out of theirs.
You brave/crazy lady, 17 kids sounds loud, I mean fun:) Love the robots.
@Marci – Definitely crazy, but it really was fun =)
She looks equally as happy!
