Transformers 2 Birthday Party Ideas

Featured Party Plan November 2009

Invitations: Take a picture of your child in his/her Transformers costume and attach to card stock with the caption "Calling All Tranformers", "The time has come for ____'s Birthday Celebration!" Use red or blue card stock and shape it into an Autobot or Decepticon logo. Another neat idea is to turn the invitation into a colouring contest! An amazing colouring page site is and its 100% free to use. Using full sized envelopes, place 2 or 3 printed off pages inside with a note describing the colouring contest and party details. Let the kids know that all pictures may be coloured for display, but only 1 can be entered into the contest. Do not forget to write "TOP SECRET" in bold, red letters on the front of the envelope and then seal with a Transformers sticker.
Decorations: Everything Red and Blue. For a splash of pizazz throw in some metallic silver! Balloons, Streamers, Tableware and Confetti of all kinds! To give it a real theme look, use some of the fantastic Transformers party supplies readily available in stores and online. Use one focal wall for the Birthday Banner. You can purchase one pre-made or go ahead and make your own using a large roll of paper and some craft paint. Use bold wording like "Happy Birthday" , "Autobots vs. Decepticons" and "Welcome to planet Earth" for your banner. Another great homemade decoration would be to make 2 large symbols of the Autobots and Decepticons logo out of poster paper to display on your wall. The focal wall is a the perfect place to display all of the contest entries! It will look fantastic as decoration as well! If you did not choose that invitation option, be sure to have a colouring center set up for the kids and let them know their masterpieces will be put on display when they are complete. There is nothing a kid loves more than putting their work on display!
Games: Transformers Balloon Blast - Blow up several small balloons and tie them to ribbons before the party. At game time, tie the ribbon with a balloon to each and every player's left ankle. The idea is to pop the other balloons without getting your own balloon popped. The rules are: No pushing or shoving, you can only step on balloons (no hands) and once your balloon is popped, you must sit out. Once the number of kids gets down to 5 or 6, make the playing area smaller by half. When the final 2 players are left, use a large area rug for the inbound area. The last one with their balloon intact wins! Sonar Hearing - Have one guest blindfolded and sitting alone in front of the group of guests. Keep the player and the group at least 6 feet apart. Have an unknown guest in the group speak the child's name or any Transformers statement like "Autobots, Roll Out!" in their most Optimus Prime like voice. The twist to make it more fun and challenging is to use one of those voice changers. You can buy them in dollar stores, they come inside of a lot of costume helmets and it even comes as an app of most cell phones! The Blindfolded child must figure out which one of the guests spoke. Its not as easy as you might think!
Pinata & Hunt for the Matrix: Whats a party without a Pinata!?! Let's combine an already super fun activity with a Treasure Hunt of sorts. The best time to bring out the Transformers Pinata is after food or snack and just before the guests are about to leave. Inside the Pinata along with the candy and favors have about 10 clues written on slips of paper. Along with gathering their treats they are going to find the paper clues. After everything has been picked up, tell the kids that there has been 10 clues hidden in the loot. Their mission is to find the clues and work together to solve the mystery and therefore find the Matrix. When they find the Matrix, they will also find some Transformer treasure! The treasure will be their loot bags but you don't have to tell them that! Choose an area in you house away from the party area. Lets us a drawer in your daughter's room for example. Clues can be "Rectangle Shape", "Girl Uses this", "White(whatever)", "Made of Wood","Larger than a T.V", Smaller than... You get the idea! Do not make it obvious because those little ones are pretty darn smart! This will be the perfect end to a perfect party!
