LEGO party ideas
I threw my son a LEGO party several years ago. It’s been one of his favorites – and his friends loved it too. (See everything I did HERE.) I think this is one of those ideas that will always be popular, so I’ve rounded up more ideas for next time.
LEGO party printables
I designed a set of printable LEGO party supplies. It includes:
- thank you note
- bunting triangles
- water bottle wrap labels
- table tent cards for names or food labels
- party circles for confetti, toothpick toppers, etc.
