A Lego Party Playdate

Since, being twins, Luke and Lila have always had joint birthday parties, they’ve never been able to have gender-specific themes. I decided it would be fun to let them have their own theme playdates this summer. Lila had her fairy tea a few weeks ago, and Luke had his Lego party/playdate today.

We mailed out little invitations (simple cards that [hopefully] looked like Lego blocks) …

… and the boys arrived ready for some Lego fun. They colored some Lego printables (and I so wanted to make Lego-shaped crayons but was worried it would forever alter the flavor of my molds) …

… played a game where they had to take turns adding to a Lego/Duplo tower until it toppled …

… had some creative free-play Lego time …
… and ate. I made small Lego-block sandwiches and served a red drink with Lego-shaped ice cubes.

They also had pretzels, chips, and Lego-shaped candies to munch on, all served out of bowls made from Lego.

Cupcakes completed the meal and they were topped with Lego chocolates made in my Lego mold.

Luke loved having his friends over for some dedicated boy time … and I’ll always jump at the chance to plan a themed activity.

I’ve started truncating my posts … please pop over to my blog to read the rest!
