Lego party

Have I ever mentioned that I am a first class procrastinator??  I know I have and I have also mentioned how my poor JP who is number 6 child always gets his birthday party a pretty long time after his actual birthday.  His birthday always falls during lent (and we don’t party during lent since I don’t like having parties on Sundays, too stressful). Easter always comes around and before I know it, it’s summer and my baby boy (who never complains) finally crosses my mind and then its scramble time to have his party before boy number 7 has to have his.

Enter. Lego. party.  Super easy to come up with ideas and one thing we have around here is legos.  This was a simple party, nothing hard to make and only 12 boys total were invited. We even had time to relax after everything was cleaned up.  For the next couple of days I will post the how to’s on some of the projects in case you are inspired to have a lego party for your birthday kid. Almost the entire party was done indoors because we expected 90% chance of rain.

WARNING: This post is going to be pic heavy.

my usual cake table presentation minus the cake… again no cake at one of my parties… I have told myself that this will not be a recurring event but I just could not get inspired to design a lego cake knowing that it has been done so many times.

one of the games… guess how many are in there?  777! yeah

lego mini figure marshmallow pops
easier than you think

simple cupcakes in lego colored wrappers… template and tutorial will be posted in a few days

fondant cupcake toppers, too easy for a tutorial

homemade shrinky dinks upcycled from plastic container to make name tag straws

free and fun, tutorial also coming
more party favors for the partiers, lego blocks soap
and yes, I will show you how easy it was to make, but you need a mold
party bags, easy but I will still post the how to
 mini figure crayons
 super inexpensive
 but you do need a mold
cake table banner 
 back in December, I found Lego party packs that were little cars and plane kits for kids to build so I bought 4 packs of 3 each… which is why there were 12 children invited.   
 after they built the cars, we had lego car races on the left side of the front porch. A sheet of melamine purchased at a hardware store with electrical tape used as lanes.  The melamine will eventually go up on a wall in my studio to scribble all my ideas on.  As soon as the games were done, the boys were all back to racing on this board so I am calling this one a winner
 this game was fun and I might pull it out of my idea bag next time its pouring outside and my kids are bored.  You have to pick up a lego block by sucking it up with a straw and moving it to your plate.  The person who moved the most blocks in 2 minutes wins

a smile, a beautiful smile….this is the reason any mom does the work to put on a party. and I love smiles

    Thanks so much for sharing your creativity! I adapted several of your ideas for my son's "Lego Mars Rover" party. We had a blast.

  17. Ellen December 5, 2011 at 6:50 pm #

    I just stumbled upon some of your ideas on Pinterest and I'm in love! This party is themed so well and looks pretty simple to do! Thanks for the great idea!

    I love this party theme. Something that would add a little more to it would be a lego cake. It would be simple! You could bake a rectangular cake and a few cupcakes. Cut the tops of the cupcakes off and turn them upside-down placing them on top of the cake to make it look like a lego. Then ice it from there. Super cute! I will definitely keep this idea and use it if I have a little boy! :) Thank you so much for this idea!

    I have had several Lego parties, but all of your ideas are new to me! Thanks so much! I have also had a Lego scavenger hunt. We poor all our Legos out on a big sheet and give the kids a list of things to find, red brick 2 x 4, any Star Wars Lego item, Clear brick, etc. First one done, wins the prize.

  20. JackieSS January 18, 2012 at 1:21 am #

    This is an adorable theme! You should definitely make a SkinnyScoop list of this! Tips, steps, tools needed to throw this party! My boss and SkinnyScoop CEO would LOVE it! She is a big fan of LEGOs and building them with her kids…just check out this list she made > LEGO Lovers Gift Guide

    • Crunchy Momma February 16, 2012 at 3:41 am #

      They are dipped in candy melts and the face it written with a food pen : )

  22. Cigall | Bat Mitzvah March 26, 2012 at 9:21 pm #

    Thank you for sharing! What creative ideas. I'm adding a link to your post on my blog – specifically an article on theme ideas. Thanks again!

    This is awesome! Thanks. We're having our Lego party next weekend and we're totally going to do the sucking Lego with a straw game! How fun is that?!?! =o)

  24. Chicagomom September 1, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    Thank you! was about to ask : how did you make the marshmallow pops! was there a tutorial for that?? Thanks!

    Hi – any interest in making one of those cake table banners for my son's birthday? It's in two weeks. we can discuss price and details. Thea

    • Crunchy Momma March 6, 2013 at 12:51 am #

      I am so sorry but I have my hands quite full right now with farm chores, homeschooling and keeping my home. I hope you can figure out how to make one, it was easy ; )

    Just curious as to how to make the lego man crayons and where you would get the mold from. I am Canada so I am not sure if I can find them here.

  28. Ayesha July 27, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Can you inform me where you purchased the molds from? Soap and mini people figurines

    • farmishmomma July 27, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

      I got the molds back when Lego sold them but I'm sure you could probably find them on Ebay. I poured the soap and the people were made from melted crayon. Good luck!

  29. Marcia Brown August 16, 2013 at 1:36 am #

    I just found your blog through Pinterest! Great Lego party post! I was wondering if you would send me a link to the cupcake holder template and the Lego blocks soap recipe, as well as the link to buy the molds. I have grandsons who absolutely LOVE Legos just like I do!

  30. Leigh August 22, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come

    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Exceptional work!

    • farmishmomma February 2, 2014 at 5:50 pm #

      thank you for the compliment. Yes, I hired a designer, her credentials are at the bottom of my blog page.

    • farmishmomma February 2, 2014 at 5:49 pm #

      I found them a few years ago at Target. I don't think they sell them anymore but you might have some luck on Ebay :) Hope your party is great!

    Moreover, the six yard attire suits and complements the Indian figure like no other attire.
    The distinction now would vary at how each will be beneficial
    to the bride’s situation and preference. Just make sure that you don’t
    include important information such as an RSVP address, or
    location of the bridal shower in a puzzle.
