During our time in Louisville last month for Will's graduation we had a birthday party for William. We had never been able to throw a birthday party for him with his friends before, so I was really excited to be able to do this. We have missed our seminary friends since moving away last summer, and it was great to get to see them again and have some birthday party fun.
The Cake and Treat Bag table
I made the birthday banner and the happy birthday sign using a lego font. I printed the letters on white paper, colored around them in a yellow marker, cut them out, and then glued them onto red construction paper. I got the idea for the banner from Homemaking Fun. The Lego man was a free printable from Winks and Daisies.
The Snack Table
We had lots of crayons and Lego coloring pages for children as they arrived.
The younger ones had fun playing with Duplo Lego bricks and Lego trains.
For games we played "I Spy the Lego Guy" and "Lego, Lego, Who has the Lego?" I found both of these game ideas on Delia Creates.
"Lego, Lego, Who has the Lego?"
Happy Birthday to William!
You can read about how my mom and I made the Lego cake here.
The pinata was a favorite of the children.
Here's how my sister and I made the Lego pinata.
Diving for the candy!
William was excited to open cards and gifts from his friends.
Every child at the party got a treat bag that had Lego bricks, Lego Minifigure chocolates, candy, and a Lego coloring book.
My sister and I made the Lego Minifigure chocolates using a silicon Lego Minifigure tray.
The younger children had Duplo Lego ducks in their bag,
and the older children had bags of small Legos.

Happy 6th birthday, William! I love having the privilege of being your mom and watching you grow up.
