Lego Birthday Party

 This might be my favorite kids' party to date- Lego Party!  I was thrilled when my oldest requested a Lego party for his sixth birthday.  I love all things Lego so I don't know who had more fun- me making the party or my six year old experiencing it.  The result was super fun.  I think everyone had a great time!

 Invites- I designed these to look like a box of Legos and printed them out at home, but I found several super cute ones you can buy on Etsy...
  Decorations- Lego head banners made with paint chips and Sharpies, bricks also made from paint chips, lots of crepe paper streamers in primary colors, center piece from XL Lego blocks, and lots of little Legos here and there... 

Food: I had a hard time thinking of Lego inspired food- cheese slices to look like bricks were my only thought.  For the cake I did cupcakes with chocolate Lego guys using this mold...
Gift Bags:  Lego head marshmallow pops (how-to found here), stickers, and a mystery Lego mini figure pack...
Games:  The kids mostly just wanted to run around outside, but some of them did spend some time playing Legos set out on the kids' old train table.  I also printed out coloring and dot-to-dot pages from the Lego sight...

Instead of cleaning up after the kids left I sat around building with all of I's new Legos.  Hooray!  Maybe He'll want another Lego party next year...

What a wonderful party, Sarah! We were planning on doing this for C but are now waiting until next year. So, I am pinning this for the future! Also, we have Caleb's legos always set up on his old train table...like you guys.

Hope to see you again someday soon! Thanks again for sending Matt out. It was so great to see him.

How did you make the lego guys on top of the cupcakes different colors?

Jenny- I used Wilton Candy Melts in the Lego guy mold and just melted them in the microwave. You can get them at Walmart or Hobby Lobby in the cake decorating section. Hope that helps!

Hello There!

I found your post on Pinterest while searching for Lego Birthday party ideas. Are your Lego invitations for sale? I am looking for a customizable digital download.

Thanks!
