|First, when the kids came in, I had them sit down and color in coloring books I made. I used pictures I found online and the puzzle maker at the discovery website. I gave them normal crayons and also ones that I made using lego ice molds. I started off melting the crayon wax down in a double boiler, and I got nice, even color that way. Those I used for the gift bags. For the party crayons, I used busted up crayons and put them right in the silicone mold and baked at 250 for about 7 minutes, until melted.|
|These are the crayons and some candy blocks I found at the bulk food store. Notice that I labeled what is for eating and what is not. I also made minifigure shaped chocolates, so I wanted to make sure there was no confusion!|
|The birthday boy and his buddy :)|
|These are the fondant covered cupcakes Mike and I made.|
|Michael made his name out of legos for the cake table.|
|Gift bags made to look like legos using pop up adhesive and circles. Along the front are baby food jars sprayed yellow. The kids used the chart of faces to get ideas and drew faces on their jars.|
I used bubble wrap painted green as a table runner to simulate a lego baseplate.
We also had a jar of the candy legos for the kids to try to guess how many. It held 277 legos, and the closest guess was 200.
We used a blocks on a duplo table to make bowls and after lining them, served chips from them.
The sign is made using the legorama everywhere font. The cookies are round and frosted with matching m&m's in the lego dot pattern.
I spray painted the trays green to match the decor and covered them with plastic wrap to serve on them.
The card is my invitation.
Personalized water wraps. Font is lego thick. I only served water to drink, but I had many flavors of the single serve drink mixes, for the guests to add.
Waiting patiently to hear the rules of our first game.
Find the legoman!!
Use your listening ears, kiddos!
I made legos for decorating out of card stock and pop-dots. I also made a big, red one out of wrapping paper for a photo backdrop.
Mike attempted to stand the legoman chocolate minifigures to the cupcakes. A few of them chose to lay down for a nap.
I made shirts for all 3 of my kids. I simply cut a legoman stencil out of freezer paper on my cricut (thank you SCAL) and ironed it on and painted. Lissie had a perfectly matching skirt, YAY!
|Isn't my princess pretty?|
|lego head balloon volleyball. Mike made me the poles for a party I threw for the 1st grade last year, and they are so sturdy, I'll be using them for a long time.|
|Mike drilled holes in a bunch of legos and the kids strung them along with beads to make necklaces and bracelets.|
|Michael sporting his lego necklace. I took pictures of each of the kids to "legoize." We will use them like postcards for thank you notes.|
|Legoman pops. I used mostly roasting marshmallows with half a mini marshmallow on top. I dipped them in chocolate and drew faces with frosting. I tried the edible markers but they would not write on the marshmallows.|
|Mason, my middle child sneaking a couple cookies. He is also wearing a legoman shirt.|
|These were in their treat bags, along with their coloring books and any prizes they won during the game.|
There are more pics to follow...A neat idea for a "guest book", my pinata, pin the smile on legoman and my invites. Stay tuned!
