What was the birthday party theme?
Editor's note: This birthday party submission was written by mom and photographer Macey Hart
My son is obsessed with LEGO brick building, so when his 11th birthday came around we threw a LEGO PARTY.
Tell us about the party.
I made the invitations by buliding 4 inch by 5 inch LEGO brick walls using approximately 16 bricks with the party details on one side and on the other side each LEGO brick was numbered from 1-16 with a Sharpie fine point permanent marker.
The party tables and center pieces were decorated with actual LEGO brick creations and hanging photos of LEGO brick creations. Cutouts made to look like LEGO bricks were strung up around the room. The cake held a LEGO brick creation that her son made. The goody bags were decorated to look like a LEGO brick and goodies that were given out as prizes during the party included small LEGO Racers from McDonald’s, LEGO brick candy, LEGO mini figure Star Wars key chains, and full size LEGO Racers that I found on sale.
Party games included using a bag of random LEGO bricks to build spaceships, building LEGO boats and seeing if they would float, racing LEGO racers on a raceway and then adapting them to go faster by adding more LEGO bricks, LEGO water balloon stations, LEGO tower team building, LEGO brick drop, and a LEGO Scavenger Hunt.
- Keep the boys busy! Give theM direction and keep moving from one game to the next or they will get out of control real fast!
