Once they saw the Lego Movie I kind of thought this would happen.
It was inevitable that the birthday party would follow.
So we got to work.
Making costumes for the rest of the family.
(Got inspired by a great tutorial here.)
Making favors with vinyl Lego heads from Etsy.
Making a zebra cake because one kid likes vanilla (Eli) and the other likes chocolate (Fin). (And an edible cake topper from Etsy.)
And getting everything else Lego-fied.
(Print your own Lego man bunting here.)
What’s the best way to start off your birthday party day? Bouncing in your pajamas.
Then it was party time. Calling all master builders!
Lord Business made an appearance.
As did a couple of Batmans.
Of course, there was a lot of bouncing.
It wouldn’t be a Lego party without Lego building.
What pairs best with a Lego movie celebration? A popcorn bar!
Joshua taking advantage of the January heat to turn his chocolate chip mix-ins into chocolate coated popcorn.
Alexander said, “Do you know what I can do when I blow this paper bag up with air and then smash the bottom with my hand?”
I replied, “Wait – is there still popcorn in your bag?”
A lot of
parents friends had fun with hair chalk.
Tyler was our youngest hair chalker.
We also made cats to add to Mrs. Scratchen-Post’s cat collection. (Original inspiration found here.)
Logan and MeMe – friends forever.
And despite the fact that I missed getting pictures of other friends, family and both of their teachers, I will never forget how happy they were during those 2.5 hours of Lego-filled fun. Happy Birthday, Wyldstyle and Emmet!
