We recently had the boys birthday party in a Lego theme. After months of browsing Pinterest, here is how we put ours together.
First of all, I wanted the boys to have custom shirts. Being a DIYer…I made them. I found a pattern online for the pieces and appliquéd them on. I had my mother in law embroidery the features, number on the lego man, and their names. It was a relatively easy project, just a bit “fussy” and Im not an appliqué fan but I was pleased with the results. Boys loved them.
For invitations, I printed info on cardstock and drew 6 circles on outside. Im sure you could be fancier but it worked and kids got the idea. (Thought I took a pic…oh well…)
I used Lego colors for all the tablecovers. I found a “lego bump” template online which I printed on various colors and then cut to various sizes, I placed them in clusters on tables and wall.
I used clear jelly jars filled with Duplos to weigh down balloons.(see later pic) I printed a Lego man outline on yellow paper for signs for gift table labels.
We played Guess How Many Legos in the jar.
We had color a lego person (which was a flop, no one cared lol)
And we had Legos and Duplos for free play.
I had mini sandwiches made on rolls. Chips. Veggie tray. And water and juice boxes, I found a juice box template online I just printed and wrapped around boxes. For water I printed a face on yellow and cut to fit.
And cake….I sent our beloved cake lady some ideas and a box of Legos and we got this amazing creation.
For part favors, which I forgot to photograph, we bought a bulk bag of mixed Legos online and sent each kid home with a little baggie.
We had a great party. It was done pretty frugally, Legos were biggest expense, but we considered it part of their gifts. I had fun planning…next year….maybe superheroes…
