Lego birthday prep...

Well, I pretty much have Caleb's birthday next month planned. We are having it at the bowling alley per his request, and we have everything ready. I like to plan all the details way ahead because my kids' birth months are so busy.

Then that leads us to Jansen's birthday in May. He chose to have a Lego party, which is cool with me. Over the next few weeks, I will be making as many of the decorations as I can because May is ridonkulous. I have Teacher appreciation week, my birthday, Mother's Day, Jansen's birthday, a friend's baby's birthday, our anniversary, end of school parties, Field Day at school, End of Year Teacher luncheon...the list goes on and on. Blah, Blah, Blah...I like to plan.....

So today, my project was to make the Lego name sign we will hang over the mantel and the balloon wreath for the front door. Here is how they turned out.....

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE how this cute little wreath turned out. We will hang this on the door for both of my boys' birthdays!! This wreath cost me about $8: bought the straw wreath, 2 bags of balloons, and some floral pins. Word to the wise....leave the plastic wrap on the straw wreath and then pin the balloons on it. Very easy, and very inexpensive. :)

And the first Lego-themed accessory....Jansen's name sign....

It looks just like the Lego Logo... and Jansen loves it.
It was so easy and so inexpensive to make. It cost right at $5 to make this sign, because I used heavy duty red foamboard instead of basic posterboard. The font was downloaded for free and printed out each letter on one page. I colored a black border around each letter and then glued it to yellow posterboard. I cut around the edges of the yellow and then glued the whole name to the foamboard. How easy is that?!

Next few things to work on:
2 Lego buntings for the mantle and for the window in our dining room
Lego gift bags
Lego filled jars
Lego invitations
