I was very hesitant to open a Pinterest account. I knew that, if I had exposed myself to it, I would spend countless hours exploring all the ideas that have been shared around the world! Well, a year or so ago I gave in... I found myself really happy to have easy access to so much information! Not only that but I could organize it to access later without needing to save the link or print it!! Oh - so many hours have been spent on Pinterest!!
Back on topic! My son is turning 7 this summer and he has requested a Lego party. I have known this for a couple of years so I have been setting aside ideas for a while. Well, the party is getting closer so I have been spending more time on it. My son, unlike my daughter, likes to be very involved in his party planning. I get a chuckle at all of his ideas and demands. He is a boy with a plan and he want to see it through ;-) This post is to share some of the items we have been getting ready for the party. All but one thing was completely FREE for me to download - I just had to pay for the paper and ink!
For a few years now I have preferred personalized and printable invitations. Usually I pick one that includes a picture of the birthday child but my son decided on this invitation that does not have his picture. I normally pay anywhere from $10-$15 to get a personalized JPEG file of the invitation. I got a great deal on this one for just under $6!!! Next, I sent the file off to Costco to have them printed.
|I decided to not order an invitation that said "Lego Movie". |
However, I did like this one and my son (the birthday boy) gave it his approval ;-)
I ordered it from here.

|Lego Bingo for larger groups! I will add the link soon (they are having technical difficulty at this time).|
|Lego heads - many uses for this! |
But we will also be doing "pin the head on the Lego man".
I opted for the head that doesn't have a face on it.
I'm going to have the kiddos color in their own face.
The printable is here.
