Lego Party!

As usual, I found most of the ideas for this party on Pinterest.
The Lego face cups were made using a template I found online and a sharpie. The cake pops were fairly simple. Melting chocolate and black gel icing.The cake pop and sucker holders were made with Styrofoam blocks and card stock. I used some of the Lego confetti I made for the studs.

The large Lego bricks were made out of Styrofoam blocks. We spray painted them and used dollar store play-doh containers for the "studs". The suckers are covered with card stock and minifig heads I printed onto yellow card stock.

The Giant minifigure head was made out of a large cheese ball container. I spray painted it yellow and sharpied on the face with a template.

I made the confetti with various sizes of hole punches and cardstock. The minifig heads on the straws were printed from a template I found online. The background, banner, and a few other decorations I found at Oriental Trading Co.

My hubby made this ramp for the kids to race their Lego cars on. I found the car kits in the Easter department at Target, half price!

Outer Space Party

The little rocket favors came from an idea I found on Pinterest. I don't have the link :(. It was a printout that I wrapped around rolls of lifesavers. The tip is a Hershey's kiss. The hardest part was gluing the little black flaps on the bottom. My friend and I made the cookies and the cake was from Kroger. The space man and tablecloth I bought from Oriental Trading as well as the plates and napkins.

Minecraft Party

My son's 7th birthday party was Minecraft themed.

 I had this made at Kroger. I should have done it myself, but I just ran out of time. I wish they had made it greener.

 Green poster board and black construction paper.

The buckets were from the Target $1 section, I believe. I used a sharpie to make the creeper face. I printed the TNT from a website (I'll try and find a link). I made the "diamond" bags and printed the image from Google. All together the favor buckets consisted of:

TNT box with candy inside
Hershey kiss "diamond" bags
TNT poppers
Green Playdoh
Personalized creeper bookmark

The games we played were:

Ghast shoot out - I put 3 weighted helium balloons on the floor and the kids used little nerf guns to try and shoot them. Below is a terrible picture, but it shows how I sharpie-d the balloons to look like ghasts.

Pin the tail on the piggie - I made a pixelated pig out of contruction paper and cut little strips for his tail. The picture below isn't terribly helpful, but hopefully it gives you the general idea. :D

Creeper toss - I made a creeper head out of a cardboard box and green duct tape. I made 3 little green bean bags. The kids tossed them at the creeper head. There were cut outs for they eyes and mouth.

The cupcakes were chocolate with white icing and bit-sized Twizzlers; to look like "cake" from the game.

I wasn't able to take a ton of pictures unfortunately. It was a busy party. :)
