Candy Robots & Another Party Favor Idea

I was feeling pretty guilty about my lack of party creativity for my daughter. The necklaces were pretty cute and I knew the girls would think they were fun but I was feeling bad for the boys. Plus I have this whole over-acheiver thing that I deal with. I have a hard time settling for “good enough”. (As seen in my sons Mad Scientist birthday party last summer.)

Then I remembered seeing these adorable robots in blog land (specifically here) and knew that was what I had to make. Seriously – aren’t they cute?

They were totally easy to make and you can add which ever kind of candy you would like to change the look of them. (I went with what was on sale.)
