This might just be my favorite party we’ve ever thrown for a birthday. What do you do when you kid is beyond obsessed with Legos AND dancing? You throw a Lego Dance Party. It was SO much fun. And turning part of your backyard in to a kid’s dance club is pretty awesome. Everyone should do that at least one time in their lives!
The perfect Lego party favor. All my parties are now over!! They were all so much fun and turned out really well. I can’t wait to share all the details with you! Luckily Dez and Tam were there to capture both! Here is a quick sneak of the Lego party favors, heart necklaces, I gave to the girls who came out for my son’s 6th birthday party. And in HUGE news, I think my niece thinks I’m cool now! We bonded over our love of neon colors and by party’s end, she asked her mother if I could throw her next party!!!!!!! I’m sure that probably didn’t go over too well considering her mom is a fellow party lover (and started this blog with me!) :) So fingers crossed, I will finally get to plan girly party like I’ve always wanted! Have a great week everyone!
If you don’t know what Ninjago is well, then just go ahead and skip this post. If you DO know what it is, you know that it pretty much runs your kid’s life and you have to play Spinjitsu and know the difference between Lord and Lloyd Garmadon. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wasn’t sure if we were going to make them for my son’s kindergarten class or buy them. But as I stood at Target staring at the boxed Lego themed sets, I became paralyzed. Do I go with what my son would pick or do I make them a bit more special by making them ourselves? I decided I would give it a try making them but if they weren’t easy, I would come back and get a ready-made set.
As I am not a graphic designer at all, I knew my only bet was going to be to find a Ninjago lego guy online. I was hoping Living Locurto had one but I think she only has the Star Wars guys. I came across this hand drawn guy via a Google Images search and my Valentine was born! I printed out 8 to a page and left room for him to write his name. My mother-in-law was tasked with getting him to sign all 40 of them when I was out one day. How cute is that little heart he drew for the “O”? I’m not sure if I will create some sort of “wrap” for these or send them as is. They are due in to the classroom tomorrow so chances are they are going as is. Did you make or buy your kid’s Valentine’s?
