lego parties are awesome

Lego birthday party- this party is full of simple DIY ideas for a Lego party!We left Denver a mere two weeks after Burke’s sixth birthday… which means, of course, that his birthday party was quite the affair (gotta go out with a bang, right?).

Lego birthday party- full of DIY ideas!That kid lo-oves Legos. Like, I am pretty sure this is not the last Lego birthday party I will plan for him, that’s how much he loves them (and my kids really enjoy coming up with a new party theme each year!). The downside of this was that Burke’s ideas were so grand that many of them didn’t happen (“Mom, can we build a Cloud Cuckoo Land in the back yard with a rainbow floor and giant Lego dog?”).

BRUNCH MENU

Croissants, lego shaped almond-butter-and-honey sandwiches, mini blueberry muffins, tart cherry scones, pop tarts, and a sweet potato and bacon egg casserole made up our Lego Party brunch menu.

ACTIVITIES

The kids loved manning the Cloud Soda Land Shop (plus, it’s about as close as I could come to Burke’s grand backyard Cloud Cuckoo Land vision- haha!).

    Kirstin, YOU are awesome! Jonah turns 6 in December and he LOVES Legos. I think I may just copy everything I see here for his party this year. Love it all and can’t wait to see the rest!

      Nicole- I really think that Lego parties are SO easy to put together. I am working on posts for easy DIY decor and easy DIY food- they should be up this week! Remind me when it gets closer and I’ll send you the printables. ;)

    Love this one! I have two 6 year old nephews and they are obsessed with Legos. One had a Lego party last year and there is talk of doing one again this year. HA! I’ll make sure to send this post to my sister.
