I SPY: A Lego Party

Oct 23, 2014

Is your kid LEGO crazy?  Mine are, have been for years, and looks like I'll never see the end of it!  Out of all the toys they buy Lego is probably the most educational and creative.  Future Architects and Engineers I see in the making here.  I should be happy that they enjoy building so much.  I am.  However, Lego can create a huge mess, and drives me nuts when I step on a loose piece.  OUCH is one of the nicer four letter words that slip out of my mouth when that happens!  HA.

But here's an idea for what to do with every loose piece you pick up.  Don't tell the kids!  Use them towards these party invitation ideas.  Came across these when researching for my lil' guys Lego party next month.

The 1st invitation is really simple to do.  Just a tip: I would crazy glue the lego pieces together so the kid receiving can't take apart the bricks.  You know they'll want to!  Otherwise an easier way is to make one brick invitation, photograph it, then print the photo out as invites to hand out, instead of the actual lego sculpture.  Just saved you time and wasting a bunch of bricks!

The 2nd invitation you could do if you have a good printer and want to make a visit to a art supply store to buy the boxes, card stock and sticker labels.  But why bother when you can order already made and assembled invitations from this shop on Etsy?  Good for small quantities.

What else is needed to throw a PARTY?  We're having his birthday party at Legoland Discovery Center so no need to decorate.  They provide all the frills, and the decor already looks like one big Lego box.  YAY!  But in case you do need party decor ideas check out my Pinterest page for inspiration.  Very cool ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Take home party favors I do need to organize.  Here's what we're debating on...

All my ideas have been pulled from either Pinterest or Etsy.  I can't take the credit for the creativity!  Gosh, what did I do before Pinterest and Etsy?  HA!  They make party planning so easy nowadays, especially with Etsy shops making fabulous DIY projects at an affordable price.  Saves you time, thinking, making and running around.  I like that!  Who doesn't?  Enjoy building your party!
