I spent so much time trying to design my own Lego invitation, only to find this adorable invitation that is way cuter than anything I could make. The best part? You can download it free at make-your-own-invitations.com.
For the Lego brick party favor bags, I bought a pack of 10 red/blue gift bags at Target for $3.99. I only needed six so I used the extra bags and my circle cutter to cut out the circles. Then I used pop-up foam squares to make the circles stick out. It took some time, but I loved how they turned out.
To make Lego crayons, you'll need a silicone mold. I bought a Lego brick mold on Amazon, but afterwards I realized you can find it cheaper on ebay. There is also a Lego minifigure mold. First, my older son and I took the wrappers off our old crayons. Then we broke them into pieces. I read that it's better to not mix too many colors, so I put clumps of similar colors next to each other.
After the crayons were in place, I put the mold on a baking sheet and put it in the oven on 250°F for about 10-15 minutes until the crayons were all melted. After the crayons cooled, they were super easy to remove from the mold. This project wasn't too bad except for removing the paper off the crayons. It takes longer than you think it will, and you'll end up with little pieces of crayon all over the place. But they are so cute!
Making Lego playdough was so easy. I just took playdough, put it in the silicone mold, and voilà!
I put the Lego crayons and playdough in snack-sized bags and put a label on it using this free Lego font.
I went the easy route and put non-Lego candy in everyone's favor bag. Here are some cuter options: buy Lego brick candy, make Lego chocolates, or make gummy Legos.
I found little Lego sets that were on clearance at Target and put one in each bag. Another option is to give each kid a Lego minifigure. They are $2.99 on Lego's website or you can buy them on ebay. I've also seen them at Target. I got my husband the computer programmer minifigure because he's a programmer and it looks just like him!
What better place for a Lego birthday than Legoland? Spoiled kid. Check out the natural LEGO pop cakes I made for his birthday here.
