The Little Brick turns 5 this year and we’ve started working on picking a birthday party theme. Of course, the thought did cross our minds to throw a LEGO-themed birthday party. So it was great to see that LEGO has a LEGO Juniors Birthday Kit on their website! Fortunately, it’s not just geared towards boys… there are kit elements for girls, too. Here’s a rundown of what they have:
Easy to print. Easy to assemble. All these require are the printouts (and scissors to cut them out), a hole punch and a bit of string.
Birthday Name Cards
A simple addition to any birthday setup, but I’m not so in love with them. When was the last time you had assigned seating at a kids birthday party? Exactly. It’s usually a ton of chaos and the ultimate goal being to get the kids to sit down to eat wherever you can. I’m not sure I would even print these out for our party. However… you could always print them out on sticker sheets and cut them to the outline so you could use them as name tags for shirts. Slap one of those puppies on the back of each of the kids and then you would know their names with a quick glance!
These super cute birthday cards would probably be really great as Thank You cards to send out for gifts received. All you need is 4×6 envelopes in which to mail them.
These are great for carrying the theme to the table setup. I can see them dressing up a table with a mix of solid colored plates, cups and utensils.
Birthday Mask – Robber
Birthday Crown Princess
You could print these out, laminate and cut them up for the goodie bags. Throw a handful of loose bricks and a LEGO animal into the bag and you’re good to go!
The birthday site had a *ton* of coloring pages. The image above only shows a few of them. But I thought it would be fun to print out random sheets and put one in each goodie bag with a few crayons. Better yet, you could create a small book from the coloring pages. Do some two-sided printing and fold and staple the pages in the middle would make a great take-along book.
It’s not a ton of items, but they’re definitely a start if you plan on throwing a LEGO-themed birthday party.
What do you think about the LEGO Birthday Kit website? What else would you want to make it more of a complete decorating solution?
