LEGO PARTY! 1 & 2

This year we decided that we HAD to have a LEGO party.  The boys are pretty obsessed with Legos, so it was a no brainer what to do for their party theme.
It did take me a little longer in the brains department to decide that we needed to do two separate parties.   It was a genius move or completely ridiculous to have two parties on the same day, but two parties in one day worked well for us!
Lego is such a classic toy and has such classic colors, it was so fun to put it all together.

Our doors sported an initial “wreath” that we switched out between parties.

We put out candy on the table and the children LOVED that!

Did you know they make Lego candy?  They do and you can even build with it!

We had lots of our large sets put together and set out as decorations.

The food was pretty simple and classic.  Cookies, cupcakes, pizza, and chips.  Classic party foods.

Miller wanted blue cupcakes.  They remind me of something…Smurfy!

Jackson chose his new favorite color…ORANGE!

I made these minifigure sugar cookies and was pleased with how well they turned out.

I also made the marshmallow pops.  Not too hard to make and they turned out pretty cute.

Our activities were easy and the children loved them.  They had free play with Legos as they arrived.

The children decided to turn themselves into minifigures.

Then we had them guess how many Legos are in the jar.

In case you were wondering… it was 94
The boys got to make a wish after we sang to them.  I bet they wished for more Legos!!!DSCN2231
Jackson took four blows to blow out his one candle.  After three blows he promptly spit a Lego candy out of his mouth onto the table and finished blowing out his candle.

Too bad we didn’t get a picture of that move!  But we do have proof!

The Guests are part of what makes a party so special.
My sister came for the party and I only have half a picture of her Sad smile Boo!

Each of our guests went home with a Lego goodie bag.

The bags had a a set of minifigure crayons, a coloring book {that was a real family collaboration to put together}, a Lego sticker and a Lego minifigure.

The boys absolutely loved their parties, which was exactly what we wanted!
