THROW AWAY THE PARTY DECORATIONS! - You can give them away
as parting gifts after your Transformers party. Use Transformers
posters (see below for inexpensive resources) to hang around
your party area. Allow the winners of different games to choose
which poster they'll take home after the party.
Roadway races. Transformers are cars - so you can have guests
play with cars and/or Transformer toys while they are waiting
for other guests to arrive. Cover a table or area with white
butcher paper. They can draw roads or buildings on the paper
and drive their Autobots around
or you can tape or glue
black construction paper to the butcher paper as a road.
Transformer party hide-and-seek. Print out images of Autobots
(good guys) and Decepticons (bad guyes) - you can find images
online. Glue them to colored construction paper - one color
for the Autobots and one color for the Decepticons. Hide them
around the party area before your guests arrive. Divide your
guests in half - Autobots and Decepticons. Give them hats
or ribbons to wear on their arms to show which team they are
on. Now they have to search for the transformers on their
team. Winner is the first team to find all their bots.
Search for the Allspark. Wrap a medium sized box in aluminum
foil as the Allspark cube. You can set up a scavenger hunt
with clues leading around the party area to the cube
or just tell your guests that they need to find the cube.
Whichever team finds the cube first wins.
Transformer costume relay race. If you can find cheap Transformer
costumes of Optimus Prime or Bumblebee, divide the group into
two teams. Have players put on the costume, race around an
obstacle course or to a line and back, and then take off the
costume and it's the next player's turn.
Transformer cake. The Transformers "face" logo is
rather simple. If you can print it out on paper, use this
as a stencil. Now you can use fondant, or perhaps even yummier
- cut strips of fruit roll ups into the shapes you need. Lay
the stripes on the cake in the shape of the face and you've
got an easy cake topper. You can also make a car shaped cake.
Either cut a car silhouette out of a large sheet cake, or
you can use a loaf pan, cut on a diagonal for the top of the
car and set it on top of a rectangle cake. There are also
cake pans available if you have the budget. Round out the
edges of the cake and frost with yellow icing. Use black icing
or licorice candy to make the stripes on the cake and you
have a Bumblebee cake of sorts.
Posters! - Great party decorations!
