Adventures in Crafts: Awesome Alien Robots

I just squeaked passed round 4 of So You Think You're Crafty!
Did you guess which project was mine?! 
It was:

Last weeks project was tricky because I wanted to think of a FUN project for kids, that was still crafty, but easy enough for kids to do on their own....it's no fun for a kid to watch a grown up do 75% of the craft. And while I think all of the projects submitted last week were great, I do not think all of them would be fun and do-able for kids (but that's just me...and I don't have kids yet...so maybe I'm wrong...)

But no worries here, because my Awesome Alien Robots got enough votes to make it to the next round!

The crafts that I remember having the most fun with as a kid, where the ones where I got to use my imagination. So with that in mind, I raided my recycle bin and "odds and ends" craft drawer, and put my imagination to work! These alien robots are fun, inexpensive, and are only limited by the creator's imagination. Anything goes with this "kids can do" craft! 
Meet Pink Eye, Camo, and Bob. 

Round 5 is "Upcycle or Repurpose" 
And I LOVE my entry for this round
(I can't tell you which one it is!)
I am totally thrilled with how it turned out! 
Voting starts on Monday!
