How to Throw a Simple Lego Movie Party

How to throw a simple Lego Movie party! Fun find the piece of resistance game.

Typically, I really enjoy throwing birthday parties for my kids (like this or this or this). I will usually start brainstorming ideas and curating a pinterest board a good month before the celebration. I will slowly collect cupcake wrappers or napkins or steamers that fit with my theme and color scheme when I’m out shopping or browsing online. Then, by the day of the party, I will have loads of yummy treats and decorations and activities all prepared, and it is fun and wonderful.

That is not at all how this party went down. I’m not completely sure why, but I was feeling particularly stressed out about this party. I couldn’t bring myself to pick a date. Or send invitations. Or really plan anything. Finally, about a week and a half before the date we had decided on my wonderful husband took it upon himself to make some invitations (even though that typically falls under my jurisdiction). The fact that I allowed him to make invitations without micro-managing really shows how off my normal party game I was.

I was very grateful he took care of that task, and I was relieved to know we had a confirmed date, location (our home), and guests. I didn’t really have time to prepare for the party at all until just a couple days before, which limited the number of things I could do. I had to limit myself to just a few projects. For instance, I really wanted to make the cute marshmallow lego heads I had made for a previous party, but I ran out of time and just told myself it was fine.

And it was. In fact, despite completely planning, shopping for, and preparing this party in about two days instead of my typical month, in the middle of the chaotic buzz of the party, my son looked at me with a big grin and said, “Mom, this is the best party ever!” And that was it – heart melted.

I think what made this party so much fun for my son was that I really focused on what he said he wanted for the party because I didn’t have the time or energy to think about anything else. He said he wanted a Lego Movie party where the kids went on a type of treasure hunt/adventure, so that’s what we did. And he loved it.

I think we all know that our kids don’t really care much about a perfectly styled desert table, but sometimes it’s good to be reminded.
