In preparation for the party I made marshmallow Lego head pops. They were super easy. Half a mini marshmallow stuck on top of a large marshmallow. Dip the whole thing in yellow candy melts and draw the face on with royal icing. (I tried food markers but they weren't cutting it.)
Next up were the goodie bags. Super easy to make with plain bags plus circles cut out of card stock and stuck on with foam squares.
Christopher requested cupcakes "just like the ones you made before." Again, so easy. (And the tutorial on how to make those candy Lego men is right here.)
I had the thought of making these cookies for the party, but then two things happened. One: I ran out of time. Two: My yellow icing looked more like American cheese than Lego Head Yellow.
Since the cookies were already cut and baked, I turned it into a party activity! Cookie decorating fun was had by all!
The main party game was, of course, playing with Legos. Although the boys did a lot of running around like mad men fighting with balloons and light sabers, they did spend some time playing with the bricks.
Our other party game was Pin The Lego Man. We just pinned his whole body. The kids had fun being blindfolded, but most of them cheated and stuck the pieces where they were supposed to go. Not Ella! She stuck that hand on near his ear like a champ... and whoever stuck the hat on the curtains made my day!
In the end they moved all his parts into place to "fix" him.
Other birthday memories included Christopher blowing out the candle with his nose...
...and the cousins having a crazy photobooth session at the end!
Happy Birthday Christopher!!
