Transformer Birthday Party

This year for Big Guy's birthday he requested a "Transformer Party" with a transformer standing robot cake. I thought the dinosaur cake last year was a challenge. But a 3D robot. Yikes!

I wasn't sure how I was going to make a transformer robot but he said I could make "Optimus Prime" in his truck mode and that would be fine.
This is truck mode. And this is my version.

I had some games planned for the party. One being "A Mission to find the ALLSPARK." I found this game online and thought it was perfect. The idea of the game was kind of a scavenger hunt. They had to figure out a clue and then that would send them to the next clue which would eventually lead them to the ALLSPARK.

The Allspark was just a box painted grey and made it look like the allspark and then inside was wrapped candy bars in between layers of a big newspaper ball. They LOVED it!

Peach of the Week

This week was Bear's turn in her class to be "Peach of the Week." Everyone in the class gets a turn to be the "Special Person" that week. Its actually really cute. She was so excited.
The "Peach of the Week" get to bring in a collage of themselves, pictures, show-n-tell and a special book.
The "Peach of the Week" also gets to sit in the special "Peach" chair next to the teacher. It is just a simple white chair so I thought it would be a great idea to dress it up a little. I made this chair cover and gave it to her class. They all LOVED IT!! You cant tell from the pic but the class really like how I made the peach fuzzy and puffy.
