Handmade Robots & Aliens Birthday

Yeah! We had a wonderful first birthday for Gabriel with lots of family and friends. Everyone had fun breaking our fancy recycled robot pinata, playing space games and dress up in robot masks and alien eyes. We had delicious bbq with the help of Wade's brother and a wonderful handmade cake from our friend Amber. 
It was a nice day. 

Robot pinata made from recycled boxes, tissue paper, ribbon, scraps of felt & foam along with old spray paint lids.

The felt banners and party favors were my favorite! Robot masks made out of recycled felt and 1/4" elastic; alien eyes made out of felt, bobble eyes and headbands. 

Gabe enjoying his first real taste of sugar with a homemade vanilla cupcake and cream cheese frosting made by grandma.

Our friend made this adorable three foot long robot cake with chocolate, spicy chocolate and chocolate ding dongs. It was amazing! 

The kids enjoyed coloring spaceships on paper plates, tossing bean bags, playing matching games and tinkering with Gabe's new robot activity mat I made just for this special occasion.
