Hey folks! What a crazy week! It's always crazy when the boys are all home (hubby too) but even crazier when it's too cold to play outside! Ha! I have been working on some invitations, but I'll have to wait on the reveal for those for the time being. But I wanted to show you *something* today, and then I remembered that I hadn't given you the lowdown on Collin's birthday party yet! It's been awhile, from mid-November, but it was a really fun party. Here's the scoop.
I made all the decorations that weren't actual lego creations. Simple circle punches, solid cardstock and foam dots make super cute (and easy!) lego decorations. :)

We had food, and I got a few extra lego plates to accent the solid colored party ware that I used. I also made some little lego pops with candy melts and a lego man ice cube tray.

The games were the absolute best! Collin and I went to the Lego Store at the mall where they have a huge wall of legos sorted by type. For the first game we had him create two small creations, and then we got all the pieces for each one, and separated them into ziplocs. Whichever kid copied his design the fastest was the winner of that round.

Above: The second game was the biggest hit. When we were at the Lego store we also got a bunch of wheels, tires, and axles. Each kid built a car, and then they got to race them. Hubby built this wood car track that we propped up with a sawhorse. I cut out a finish line on the Cricut with vinyl. The boys had SO much fun with this one! And the track has been fun for them to play with ever since. :)

who does custom cakes. Isn't it cute? :)
I can't believe he's 10! :) Hope you liked the party, be back soon with some more fun projects!
