Does the theme of your child’s party center around electronic toys and robots? Maybe you have a futuristic theme you’re looking for a unique treat for. Handmade Charlotte has step-by-step instructions (with pictures) for making robots out of your favorite grocery store chocolates in miniature form! Mini Reese’s cups (or Rolos), M&Ms, mini Junior Mints, Snickers peanut butter squares, and some chocolate candy melts are all it takes to bring your robots to life. For older kids, this could be a fun craft project they could take home from the party as well!

Check out the complete instructions at Handmade Charlotte.

Nikki at Tikkido.com has a fun, festive take on plain, boring deli containers. With some scrapbook paper, cutouts, printables – or even stickers – you, too can bring snack-holders to life! These decorated clear containers aren’t just for food, though. Party favors, play-dough (purchased or homemade), and treats will all look right at home in your themed deli containers. What you put inside can carry the theme as well – check out the life-preserver-shaped sandwiches inside the nautical-themed container marked “Open in case of HUNGER”!

With Halloween just around the corner, the mummy project featured on Dr. Sonia’s blog about her daughter’s Egyptian themed birthday party would be the star of the show! There are links to tutorials for her other Egyptian-themed decorations as well! All the supplies needed are easily-available and relatively inexpensive – the entire body is created by recycling old newspapers – so with a little elbow grease (and maybe a little helper or two) this project should be bewitching your guests in no time!

If you’re planning any sort of nautical themed party in the near future, you’ll definitely want to check out Tikkido’s instructions for a cute treat bag made from Russian veiling, ribbon, twine, and your trusty glue gun.

She uses her bags to package homemade Goldfish crackers, but I think this idea would work well for many different types of party favors and treats. For a pirate party, for example, you could package wrapped chocolate gold coins so your little guests can take home a bit of treasure.

Whether your little girl is dreaming about being a cheerleader or already earned her spot on the squad, this classic “Peace, Love, Cheer” theme from Uncommon Designs is sure to be a hit.

What I love about this party is that it can be easily adapted to your favorite team’s colors (or your birthday girl’s favorite color combo). The mason jar cupcakes are my personal favorite, but there’s also a DIY hair bow tutorial that would be cute for use as a party favor for your little guests.

Is your tween daughter begging for a spa day with her friends?

Me And My Insanity has instructions for adorable nail polish party invites.

My favorite part of this design is the message wrapped around the handle of the nail polish brush, which is made from a cotton swab. I also love that this design could incorporate some of the many glittery cardstock papers at your local craft store.

Local school and NFL fans alike will appreciate these football-themed ideas for your pregame tailgating. From football moms hosting a team dinner to the armchair quarterbacks watching their favorite pro team with a group of friends will all score a touchdown with their guests with these fun decorations from UncommonDesignsOnline.com.

Pass the popcorn please: 5 simple steps to a backyard outdoor movie night!

This list, compiled by mightygirl.com, has many options to consider.

From seating to invitations to snacks, she’s thought of it all –and has buyable, rentable, and DIY options for each!

The featured party is to celebrate a child’s birthday, but I’m thinking a backyard movie night would be the perfect way to end the summer or to celebrate the first week back at school. With a party idea that’s this easy, there’s no reason not to celebrate!
