I love planning birthday parties. It is so much fun to look through all the options and decide on a theme based on what your child likes at the moment. Ronin has always loved Duplo Legos and this year he has shown more of an interest in the little Legos. So, we decided to make his birthday party Lego themed.
We always buy a birthday banner, themed table clothes and helium filled mylar balloons for our birthday parties. We picked these up at Party City. For the banner we hung it in the opening to our sun room area of our house. We also hung 3 plain yellow balloons on each side of the banner to give it a pop of color. We placed each balloon on the tables with the table clothes.
I knew I wanted to build some party decorations out of legos. I built HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONIN 4 out of Duplo Legos. I put the letters on the tables.
I also built this napkin holder out of little Legos.
To add to the decorations I filled a vase full of Duplo Lego people.
I absolutely love these lego head storage containers. I purchased a large and a small one for the party. I put plastic silverware in the small one and homemade party mix in the large one. They were a perfect addition to the party and can also be used after the party for lego storage.
I made lego minifigure and brick crayons from these silicone molds. These were super easy to make and so fun for the kids.
All you do is break crayons up into little pieces and place them in the silicone molds (fill the molds overflowing as the crayon will melt down into the tiny spaces of the mold). Bake them at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for 1 hr before removing from the silicone molds.
I also printed some minifigure coloring pages for the kids to color on.
We ordered the cake from a local bakery and sent them a Lego image to put on top of the cake as an edible image. We also ordered pizza from our favorite local pizza shop.
Fun was had by all at Ronin’s 4th birthday party. I can’t wait to plan the next birthday celebration! Do you like to plan celebrations? What has been your favorite one to plan? Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you again soon!
