Transformers Party Favor





Transformers

Party Favor
Created by MyCreativeStirrings.com
I decided to create a "Game Can" for my Transformer Birthday Party- Party Favor.  This can contained 5 interactive games that would hopefully keep the children occupied for hours after the party.  You can download the instructions for the games in PDF format by clicking HERE and download the game board in PDF format by clicking HERE.

My can is a #10 can with a few embellishments.  I typed up an explanation of the contents and taped them on the inside of the can:

Party favor contents include 5 interactive games:
1. The Cube- hot and cold game
2. Build your own Transformer- using crackers
3. Transformer Game board with red and purple candies
4. Transformer Scavenger Hunt
5. Transformer Can Toss- using scavenger hunt items and the can

You can download the instructions for the games in PDF format by clicking HERE and download the game board in PDF format by clicking HERE.

1. The Cube
This is designed to be the hot and cold game.  It is made by covering a squarish box (i.e. a tissue box) with decorated paper.  I used crayons to re-create cube like designs.  A few of my games transform into the next game after the children are done playing them; The Cube is one of those.

 
I rubberbanded the label to the cube.

2. Build Your Own Transformer

This edible game is found inside the cube!  Here are the rules:

Build Your Own...TransFormer

On a flat surface, divide the crackers between hungry players. Allow each player to build their own transformer using their crackers.

For a fun challenge combine all the crackers and build a giant transformer using every cracker. 
I placed the crackers in a large sealed bag inside the cube.  Then, placed a copy of the rules on top of the bag of crackers where the kids could easily find them...before the crackers were eaten.

3. Transformer Game Board

Here is a fun game board that My Other Half and I created.  I provided purple and red candies to represent the Autobots and Decepticons.

This is the game board and game pieces.
I pasted the game instructions on the back of the game board.

I placed all of the parts to this game into one large bag.  Then, placed the bag in the #10 can.

4. Transformer Scavenger Hunt

This activity allows the children to get up and wiggle for a few minutes.  Have them gather special, "Transformer Parts".  If you want to continue the fun allow them to gather more items.

5. Transformer Can Toss

This final game uses pieces gathered from a previous activity as well as the container the party favor came in.  Here are the instructions:

TransFormer Can Toss
Using your Transformer Scavenger Hunt Parts TRANSFORM them into one giant mass.  All parts must stay connected.
Place your tin can in an open area and take 10 steps back.  Take turns throwing your transformer into the can.  Allow each player to throw 5 times.  Whoever gets their transformer into the can the most wins the game!


Here is the verbiage I used for each game:
