All Things Robot

Do your kids love all things robot? Then they’ll love this new book, Robo-Sauce!

All Things Robot! Books, crafts, costumes and apps!

We were recently lucky enough to receive a copy of Robo-Sauce, and ever since my son received one of those robot claw grabber toys a few months ago, he’s been robot-obsessed! So this book was perfect for him.

Now this is no ordinary robot book. It’s no ordinary book, period! The story is about a boy (and his dog) pretending to be a robot. But things aren’t roboty enough for them, so they concoct some Robo-Sauce to turn them into proper robots. Unfortunately when they then try and take the Robo-Antitdoto it doesn’t work, and turns EVERYTHING into robots. Even the very book you are holding.

Yeah right, you say. But with some very clever printing and creativity, a fold out flap becomes the new cover for the book, you flip it over and you get a whole new book! I had to try this several times for myself first! It’s completely brilliant!Robo-Sauce

Our friends over at Sunny Day Family even made a printable Robo-Sauce snack pack wrap to go with this book – you’ve got to see it! And Kids Creative Chaos made some Robo-Sauce from leftover Halloween candy. BEEP!

To celebrate all things robot, here’s a selection of robot-themed books, crafts, activities, costumes and apps!
