For my little boy’s 4th birthday he decided that he wanted a Lego party. Sounded like a good idea since the Lego Movie just came out and the whole Lego extravaganza was really taking off. So when going to pick up party supplies I thought it would be no problem finding things. But to my surprise someone thought it was a good idea to discontinue the Lego birthday theme!
What! are you crazy?! I though “what am I suppose to do now?” My little boy already had his heart set on this. Good thing he has a mom who likes crafts and party planning.
Only thing I could think was, “let the brain storming begin!” And actually it worked out much better. My son and I got to make a lot of the party decorations together. (perfect bonding time) As well as I liked the fact that we came up with it instead of just buying some plates and cups with pictures on them. The whole birthday didn’t cost much because I’m cheap and refuse to spend a lot on decorations that you will more than likely throw away, however I do want the party to look nice. Here are some pictures from the party.
I got these cute little gift bags for the kids to take home. Found them at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 for a pack of 12. So what I did was go to Hobby Lobby’s website and get the 40% off coupon. I needed more than 12 so I got another pack and just paid for them separate so I could use the coupon on both! (yep I’m that person). The cute stickers are from a book we found at Walmart for $5.99. Comes with over a 1000 stickers and after I picked which ones I needed just gave it to my son. Win!Win!
For the cups I got these from Walmart as well for around $5.99 for 50 cups. Then took a sharpie and drew on the faces to look like the Lego faces. Cut out a little construction paper (we already had that but think you can get that for about $1 at the dollar store) and wrote what the drink was and put a sticker beside it. Cute and cheap! The kids loved them!
Next was some juice boxes and I made the look like Legos. I saw this on Pinterest and it turned out really cute. I took construction paper, wrapped the juice box and taped it. Then cute out little circles and taped them on. It was tedious because I cut each of the circles by hand because I refused to buy the thing from Hobby Lobby for $10 to cut circles. (cheap I know)
For the plates I got a solid color from Walmart for about $5.50 for 24 and then some solid color cake plates for $2.50 for 24. I used my sons bigger blocks (because to build that out of Legos would have taken FOREVER) to build this box to hold the plates. Stuck the forks in a cup that I drew a face on and made another sign with stickers and BAM! Cute!
I made sandwiches and chips and dip for the party. For the cute little things in the sandwiches I used a cutter that cuts a perfect circle. You can find these at Hobby Lobby for about $12. You can use the coupon on this product and it is well worth the purchase. (this one cuts a bigger circle then the previous one I talked about) You will find that you use this for every party from here on out. So I cut those out, which was the party my son loved! Put a sticker in the center. Taped a toothpick to the back and that’s it! Easy!
For this I bought a table cover from Walmart for $1.00 then took some construction paper and cut it into a rectangle. Cut some circles and taped them where they look like they are lifted and they look like Legos. The Banner I made out of construction paper as well. I just free handed the letters and then put the stickers on them. Used a hole puncher to punch holes in the top and then ran a black ribbon through them. The ribbon was on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $1.00. Add some streamers that they sell for $1.00 each at Walmart and that’s it!
The party ended up turning out so much better than I could have imagined! Everyone loved the decorations and the party was a hit!
Hope this helps you with your Lego Birthday Party!
