Tired of hearing about the Lego party yet? Just a few more posts, I promise.
The easy-to-replicate Lego heads made party decor very much easier to do. We held Tau’s party under a set of trees in the park, and so I made three sets of Lego bunting to string between the trees. They took some getting up there but they looked great!
And they were easy-peasy to make: A pad of construction paper, paper cutter and scissors, Sharpie, stapler and a roll of twine. You get the picture.
We used Lego heads everywhere — on the coolers, the juice bowls, the garbage and recycling bags.
And finally, on the goodie bags, which were so easy to make. I took $1 store black Halloween bags, added a Lego head, a sheet of colorful tissue, and then customized each bag with the child’s name written in Lego font.
Sidebar: Lego has a long way to go to capture the market for girls. I’m not talking about expanding their tiny range of pink Legos (ugh!) — but how about sets in regular colors that are not all about aggressive car racing, action figures with nasty looking weapons or mutant undersea monsters?
But I digress. Our goodie bags were featured this week on the blog Lifestyles of the Brick. Check out the dazzling array of Lego-related goodness there!
