Have I ever told you I LOVE GREAT BIG SEA??? Well, they played here last night and I LOVE THEM! Truly! Not like I'm want to marry them, but just they are fun, easy to listen to and a great night out! And to sweeten the deal I went with two AMAZING women I am so glad to call friends! What a GREAT way to start my Friday!
So today's post is a little "non" stamping, but certainly crafty. I've had quite a few of you ask what sorts of things we did for Nathan's Lego party so I thought I'd share. First off, these little Lego block gems are made with the Lego block ice cube tray. I melted the chocolate wafers in different colours and voila....edible Lego Blocks!
Nathan saw these on Pinterest and wanted to have these in his goodie bag as well. We used a big marshmallow and a mini marshmallow, shoved them on a sucker stick and dipped them in yellow melted chocolate wafers! EASY PEASY And my little trick, when I make cake pops or these little gems is I use my noodle strainer to hold the sticks....works great! The faces are drawn on using an edible marker.
After making Nathan's cupcakes (and melting chocolates into the Lego dude molds) we made Lego crayons. Each dude was one melted crayon, peeled off the paper, broke them into pieces, piled them in the mold and baked them at 250 for about 8 minutes....and we got these super sweet Lego dude crayons! (I'm using them at school right now as incentives and the kids are LOVING them!)
What's a birthday without a game? We took a Stampin' Up! box (see told you I used some Stampin' Up:) and wrapped it in paper. Adam cut two holes in the top (to resemble a Lego block). I then just cut up some felt, Big Shotted (is that a word) out some circles, used some Tombow to adhere the circles to the squares, filled a little Ziploc baggie with rice, shoved it between the two squares, stitched up around the edges and TADA....Lego Beanbags! Cute, eh? This was the highlight and shockingly nothing in the house was broken and no one was injured playing this game:)
And of course we had to have a craft! I bought these frames at the dollar store. The kids (with Emma's help) glued Lego onto the frame and coloured around them (with YES, my Stampin' Up! markers.....I have come so far!) It was nice to have a bit of a quiet activity...although it was only four friends, it was a loud party:)
I love this shot of Nathan being framed:) He's had fun with the frame as he's been building off it and attaching little Lego dudes to the frame. Thanks for asking about Nathan's party! Hope these can help someone out there that may be having a LEGO party of their own! Have a great day!
