Lego City Birthday Party

{Short Flight}
Lego City here we come!  


When Ethan {8} decided he wanted to have a "Lego City" birthday party I wasn't sure what in the world we would do!  Lego City? Really?


So we put on our creative hats and decided that we would actually GO to Lego City for the party!  

Ever been?  

Well, if not here's quick run down of how to get to Lego City and then what to do once you get there!

{This was the invitation.  It was super easy to make!  Just click here and you fill out a template that turns out like this plane ticket! Super easy and so fun.} 



{Great Flight}
If you can get yourself to Ashby Airport the rest is a breeze.  


You won't find another airline that is more customer service oriented. Hands down.:)



While waiting for your flight there is plenty to do!  Lego books, magazines, coloring pages, and of course legos to play with!



Once the flight is ready to board you will receive your Boarding Pass with your name and seat assignment.






{In Flight Service}
Once in the air you'll have the time of your life.  The in-flight movie is Lego's "Clutch Powers", snacks are grand, and the Flight Attendant is amazing.











{Arrival}
Upon arrival to Lego City you will not be left alone to get lost!



A Visitor's Guide makes seeing all of Lego City informative and fun!   You are able to go from one place to the next at your own pace.  However, be sure to visit all of the places because you can trade in your card at the bank for a prize! (Goody-bag!)

{I just whipped this up in PhotoShop. Here is the Lego Font I used. }


{While the kids were "flying" we quickly decorated for Lego City!  I ordered a few Lego City supplies via Party City, printed signs using THIS FONT, and made a picture list for the Mini-Figure Hunt.}






The Library: Complete with Lego Books, magazines, and a couch to hang out on.

 

The Bakery:  Frost your own Lego cookie! (And come back later for some singing, cake, and ice-cream!)





The Building Zone:  This includes the Building Contest (creating with Legos) and Creative Zone (color pages & Halloween crafts)! (The Building Contest was so fun & the kids loved it! Towards the end of the party Ethan judged each creation and each guest got to pick out a prize from the prize box.)









The Recreation Area: Bobbing for apples. 
(Totally Ethan's idea...he really wanted to Bob for apples at his party. It was the 1st thing he did in Lego City and he loved it.:)
The Game Zone: "Put the Shark in the Water"...(ordering via the Party Store.)  Lego version of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey". I love the yellow mask that came with it! Ethan even used it for his Halloween costume when he was a Lego man!






The Mini-Figure Hunt: Ethan hid 8 or so mini-figures (that he had created) for our visitors to find!  As they found each one they could check it off the list. (He loved making these and hiding these for everyone...and in return they loved finding them!)




The Bank: And at the end of visit to Lego City guests traded their cards in for a fun party bag! Yay!



{Back to the Bakery}
Singing, cake, ice-cream, and presents are a great way to finish up a visit anywhere!



(Found these lego candles at Target! Yay!)



Remember these little ice-cream cups!  I LOVED these!  I had to get them for the party...although I had to laugh when I gave them each a wooden spoon and they didn't realize that they were suppose to eat their ice-cream with it. :)







Pick Up:
And once the party was over guests hung out on the plane watching Clutch Powers until their parents picked them up!  
Sidebar: This was especially fun for the kids whose parents don't let them watch much TV! Wink, wink.

{Behind the Scenes}
Party prep is actually one of our favorite things to do!  This Lego City party was actually very simple and getting things ready early helped it run pretty darn smoothly.

Making these Lego shaped cookies was a blast.  We didn't have any lego cookie cutters but just used cups to make circles and cut "L"s and lego with a knife.




{Lego City: Check}
Overall, it was a great trip for everyone...


Especially for the most important person of the day!


We love you buddy!  Happy 8th Birthday!
Love,
Mom, Dad, and Aidan
