A Lego Birthday Party


Growing up my parents always made a big deal about birthday parties. This is something I want to do for my kids. It isn’t always about the money you spend on the party but the little details that make it special. We have a note book for each of our children. Each birthday we get all of the guests to write or draw a little something. My parents did this for me and I love to look back at my birthdays as a child.

This year our son really wanted to have a Lego birthday party. It was difficult to find any Lego decorations or games. Here are a few things that we did to make his Lego birthday a exceptional one.


Loot Bags

–  Use a 1” circle

punch to cut out 6 circles for each bag. Attach with foam adhesives to the coloured paper bag so they are raised. Write Lego on each circle. You can also make name tags with the Lego font to attach to the bags.

Lego Activities

–  Each child received a 3 in 1 Car Lego kit. We set up a ramp in our backyard for the children to race their new Lego cars down. This was also a part of the loot bag to go home.

–  Give the children a large bin of Lego and see who can build the biggest tower in a 1 min. This is one of those games everyone can participate and really enjoy.

– Give each child a plate of Lego and vote for who made the most imaginative creation, best animal, and most creative vehicle.


Lego Snacks

– Marshmallow Lego men heads. Cut a small marshmallow in half height attach to a larger one. Dip in yellow melted chocolate. Use a food colour pen or fine tip icing to draw the Lego men faces.

– Primary coloured smarties always makes for a yummy snack and goes along with the colour scheme

– You can find

 Lego candies at your local bulk store.

– We used a lego box our son made for all the utensils

– Purchase yellow cups and used black permanent markers to draw on different lego man faces. Each one was different so the kids knew which cup was theirs.

I had a lot of fun organizing this party for our son. It was a great colour scheme of 4 primary colours, which made it easy to find coloured plates, forks and na

pkins. Our son really loved helping out in making the decorations with his Lego. I hope this gives you some Lego ideas for your little ones special day.




12 days #3 – Hand-print Snowman Christmas Balls

Another adorable craft I found on Pinterest, hand print Snowman Christmas balls! So very cute, and easy to do. Perfect for day 3 of the 12 days of Christmas series!

What you need
-Christmas balls big enough for your child to get their hand around
-Paint – white, black, orange, and whatever scarf colour you want
-Paint Brushes and Sponges

What to do

Paint your child’s hand all in white. (tip: Have wipes ready!!)

If they are old enough, have them just grab the ball from the bottom, and hold it in their hand. With Q, I placed his hand in. Because he is still small, it was hard to keep his fingers apart, without making a huge mess. Still works though!

Place upside down in egg carton, or cups, and let dry fully.

Once dry, it’s your turn to get creative! Unless your children are old enough, put the paintbrush in your hand, and paint on hats, eyes, buttons and a nose onto each of the fingers to create your snowmen.

Let dry, then apply a coat of mod podge, or another sealant to protect the paint from chipping off. Show your children their adorable work of art, and hang it on your tree!

These are way too cute! We may have to make more to give as gifts for the grandparents this year!
