Zeke's 5th Birthday Party

Lego! Lego! Lego!  On February 2, Zeke turned 5! He had a Lego-themed birthday this year.  6 little boys from his preschool class (and a few younger siblings and parents) celebrated Zeke's 5th birthday last weekend.  We extended the Lego theme about as far as we could manage.  Lego invitations were sent out.

We melted crayons into minifigure molds as a part of the goodie bags for guests. I purchased some handy-dandy silicone molds off of Amazon that we used for the cool minifigure crayons and brick-candy cupcake toppers.  The bricks we made out of Wilton Candy melts (the same thing people use for cake pops and such).  I loved how our pre-party crafting worked out!  

I made the piñata out of two cereal boxes, paper maché and some tissue paper.  The weather didn't allow for an outside piñata, but Tom rigged up his branch-trimming pole and used a chair to bring the fun indoors!


We served pizza, apple juice, fruit, and cupcakes!  Zeke decorated the plates to resemble his favorite minifigure faces.  

Games included:  
Tower building contests  (Awards given to tallest, squarest, strongest base, wiggliest, and cutest), 
Lego-bag toss, and brick free-play.  

Zeke even received some awesome gifts from his friends.  It was such a fun party!
