My kids love LEGO, so this year, we decided to have a LEGO birthday party. Unfortunately, we had problems finding decorations, and I decided that rather than paying a lot of money for them, I would just make my own. If you are looking to do a LEGO party, here are some simple things you can do to make everything festive without too much fuss or expense.
For the decorations, you will need:
A Round Punch (can be found in the scrapbook section at your local craft store)
Double sided tape or scrapbooking tape
Colorful paper bags (if you are making the treat bags as well)
First you are going to want to use your round punch to cut your circles to make your LEGO bricks.
Next, You want to apply the circles to the Cardstock. I used two lines of four for the bricks on 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock.
Using the ribbon and clothespins, you can attach the paper LEGO to make your banner.
If you are doing the treat bags, they will look something like this after you cut the circles and stick them to the bags.
In addition to the LEGO Bricks, we also made balloon banners using the same colors we used for the bags and banners. We blew up the balloons and tied them with twine to make them look like this:
The kids really enjoyed the decorations, and their guests and parents got a kick out of the bags that we filled with pencils and mini-figures. Making the decorations helped keep the costs down, and they can be easily re-used.
