My sweet son turns 10 == LEGO PARTY!!!

LEGO PARTY

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.

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


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 

A pinterest inspired lego game - the kids LOVED this game..I just tweaked it a little bit.

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 tower...here 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.
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.
