It’s A Lego Birthday Party!

Lego Birthday Party

The two middle D boyz are 23 months apart.  Gabe was born on March 15th, and Nate was born at February 15th.  The bonus of them being a little less than two years apart is that they are usually into the same sort of thing.  They also have many of the same friend, of course the same family, and also family friends that have children close to both boyz ages.
To celebrate this year we held a Lego themed birthday party.  We sent out invitations to the party that I made on the computer and had printed on card stock from Staples.  That is my favorite way to make personal invites.  It costs 25 cents per invite and I can pick them up the next day!

I made invites for those who know both boys, but also ones with the individual name on the top for their classes and personal friends.
We had the party at our church fellowship hall.  As everyone attending didn’t know exactly where the party would be in the building (there are multiple doors) we wanted to make it easy to find the party.  I made this Lego block for by the door.
All I did was use a large cardboard box, a pizza box, stones and roll of red wrapping paper from the dollar store. First I filled the box with a couple of rocks to weigh it down so it didn’t blow away in the spring gusts. I then just wrapped the box like a present.  Using the pizza box I cut out six circles, covered them in paper and added them to the front.  Simple, fun and only cost the $1 for the paper.

The room was rather large.  Instead of trying to decorate every inch of the room, we decided to do a garland of balloons in primary colors.  I found an inexpensive solution at Party City, a roll of plastic perforated “tape” that you just pop your tied balloons into for about $6.

I like the impact it had!  We also covered the long tables in primary colored tablecloths.

Around the room we placed these cute Lego Minifigure cutouts I printed for free from Winks & Daises here with both Gabe and Nate’s ages.

When guests arrived they could build at tables with Legos.  How cute is my niece?

Then we started the games.  Daddy D refereed 1 minute challenges where contestants raced to build the tallest freestanding tower.

We had a container the Gabe filled with Legos from his bin that each person got to guess how many…another of my nieces guessing

We also played Legos Bingo that I found here from Big D & me and printed out.  We used small Legos as markers for the cards.

Then it was time for food!  My adorable third (and final) niece in attendance at the party…

We had lots of party food with fresh veggie and fruit as well as chips and pretzels.  But we also had Lego themed treats!
We had juiceboxes that I covered in construction paper with two dots I cut out on my Cricut, inspired from here.

And these are a Lego twist that I saw all over on the candy coated marshmallows we did last year.  It is a mini-marshmallow on top of a full sized marshmallow dipped in the yellow candy melts.  I then used a tube of Wilton Black Icing with a #3 tip to pipe the faces on.
