Lego Super Hero Party + Banner Printable

Lego-Avenger-Party

The past month and half has been crazy in our family. We celebrated JD’s 6th birthday, and two days later our daughter had surgery, and I have just been trying to play catch up with everything else. Thankfully, our daughter has recovered quickly and has done so well with everything. Trying to get back to a normal schedule has been tough, but we are slowly getting there!

JD has been into Legos lately, and it’s not hard to see why, especially with the new Batman Lego Movie out. I had other things going on, so I tried to keep this party pretty low key. Luckily I still had this backdrop I made for a Trunk or Treat last Halloween. I wanted to throw it away since I didn’t think we were going to use it again, but I’m glad my husband convinced me otherwise! Using a box cutter, I cut out different shapes from a tri-fold board (for science projects) then painted it black, and cut out yellow squares from construction paper. I used diaper boxes (on the sides) and taped them together, and painted them black and used the yellow construction paper again for the windows.

I learned how to make the colored circles from a friend, and they are so easy to do! I used a circle cutter like this one and sewed the circles one after the other so that they’re still on the same thread. I also found this awesome Lego “Happy Birthday Banner” here. And since I couldn’t find any other Lego Avenger printables, I made some for the party which you can download those HERE.

To save some money with balloons, I bought a pack at the dollar store, blew them up at home and hung them upside down from the ceiling over the table. I had balloons left over and left them all over the floor. It was a huge hit with all the kids… I’m pretty sure that was their favorite part of the whole party. I also had some extra boxes laying around and wrapped those up in colored paper that I found at the $1 store and cut out little circles and used them as a centerpiece for the table so they looked like big Lego pieces.

I found a list of great of games over at Play.Party.Plan. JD had been asking to have a pinata for a while at his party, and we finally gave in. Five and six year olds are pretty dang strong, because that pinata did not last long. We probably should’ve blindfolded them or something to make it harder! Now we know for next year!

I made a Lego cake, but I am not a cake decorater, so I will spare you the hideousness of how it looked. Let’s just say it was a major Pinterest fail! Overall, these kids had a great time and I can’t wait to plan the next party!

Mini Easter Baskets – Free Printable

Mini Easter Baskets Display

I have to admit, last year was the first year I ever had a Cadbury Egg (or it had been a VERY long time since I had one) and I fell in LOVE! I have been addicted to them and have to control myself whenever I have them in my house, so as you can imagine, taking pictures of these Mini Easter Baskets was not easy. On the other hand, these Mini Easter Baskets are very easy to put together.

You can use these as part of your table setting for the “Kids Table” (or the “Adult Table”) at Easter Dinner, use them for a party favor or a little treat to pass out to friends. I’ve created 5 different colored printable baskets, or you can use your own scrapbook paper and use the Blank Mini Easter Basket printable here to print on the back. They’re a fun addition to your Easter celebration and they’re totally budget friendly.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Printer

-Mini Easter Basket Printable (grab the downloads below)  or (blank version here)

-Glue or Double Sided Tape

-Grass for Easter Baskets

-Easter Treat

-Easter Tags (download here)

-String

JD really wanted to help and did a pretty good job (sort of). When I asked him not to squish the “basket,” he couldn’t help himself, so the picture of the pink basket is a little squishy thanks to this kid. đŸ™‚

Avenger Birthday Party Printables

JD had been waiting for his birthday since Christmas was over. That may not be that long of a wait, but for an almost 4 year old that’s a long time… and it felt long for me as well, since he’d ask me every morning if it was his birthday yet. It didn’t help that his brother’s birthday was just 3 days after Christmas, my birthday was 2 weeks later, his cousin’s was a couple days after mine, and one of his good friend’s was 2 days before his. Because of this, I wanted to make sure his birthday was extra special (as it will have to be every year). He loved everything about his party, and he had a blast! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

Today, I’m sharing the printables I made for the party, including a couple of the ones that I didn’t have a chance to put together. If you have a little super hero in request of an Avengers Birthday party, they’re going to love these decorations! [For personal use only].
