lego party ideas, lots of fun ideas and easy to make projects

So Josh turned 10 today and it's the first day of SPRING BREAK -- how lucky am I ?!?!  We have 2 weeks off and I threw my son a lego party today.  Here are the highlights.
First the night before birthdays in our house we sleep on a birthday pillowcase made by our beloved Aunt Andrea.

birthday fun ideas for kids

Decorate your child's door on their birthday for a fun surprise when they wake up.

Next the pinterest inspired streamer paper across the doorway - his sister busted through it on her birthday but he wanted to crawl through it and keep it entact.

Invites...a lego brick
lego party invites, make them look just like a lego block

Lego mini cakes, the kids loved this!

Lego Cakes - my wonderful mom in law made these for us...:o)

Lots of fun lego decorations
The favor table -- I made lego heads from yellow to go boxes -- I just google imaged lego faces and drew them on my own.  The kids loved them.  They were filled with their favors.

Josh and nana with the cakes.

Table decorations 

Lego game for the party goers to play
A pinterest inspired lego game - the kids LOVED this game..I just tweaked it a little bit.

Lego party favor boxes, just picked them up at Michael's and decorated them with a sharpie

Lego man banner

Made this cute banner with my cricut machine. 
Guess how many legos in the mason jar for a prize...notice the candy legos too -- they were perfect for this party.

I also made this banner with my cricut - rectangles with little circles on top with the glue dots for a 3D effect.  I used twine instead of ribbon to make it more boyish.

I found these cute 10 tags and idea on the web searching around I will look up link and add it. 

At the end of the game they have to measure to see who built the tallest they are comparing them.

I made this lego guy for a pin the head on the lego man but changed it up because I realized it was too young for this age.  I still blindfolded them but gave them a nerf gun.  They had to shoot the nerf gun closest to the lego guys head after being spun around 4 times.  They really enjoyed this version of it.

Create a silverware holder by building a lego box.  You can also roll up napkins and place them in there too.

My hubby made the silverware holder out of legos... :o)
I saved several boxes - mostly capri sun ones , covered them with bulletin board paper ( you could also use table cloth paper ) and added circles cut from my cricut.  Then used them all over the house as decorations.  I added different size boxes and colors to make it more fun.

Sorry for so many pictures but it was such a fun day I got over excited. :o)  Hope I was able to give some of you mom's ideas for a lego party.
