Our eldest turned 6 this week! I know for everyone, 5 is a big milestone, but for us, turning SIX was huge! We now ‘officially’ start our homeschooling journey. He no longer forms any resemblance to an infant/preschooler/baby. He is all child, all BIG boy, in body and mind, and that is both sad and exciting!!
To celebrate, we held a LEGO party!!
We sent out these lego-head invites to close family and friends…
The perfectionist in me wanted to draw the faces myself, but Mr to-be-6 was determined to do them himself (and rightly so!). They make me smile!
We held the party at a local park, because he really wanted a new scooter and to play at the skate bowl. I’ve never had a party out of our home before, I was suprised how easy it was!
I made lego-head-pops…
and made up lego-head blowers too! These were such a hit with the kids – amazing how the simple stuff captures them aye!?!?!
We served some of the food in lego containers, which were brand new and now make up his room decor!!!
I also bought a couple of new packs of lego, lego books, and DVDs, which again doubled as both decorations and presents.
Of course, the piece-de-resistance of every party is the cake! This has to be the easiest cake I’ve ever had to make for the kids birthdays!!! I’ll post up a tutorial next week 🙂
Those are also lego-brick chocolate slice in yellow!
Combined with traditional kiwi party foods (cherios, chip n dip, popcorn, pizza, sausage rolls, cookies, fruit kebabs etc) the spread looked fantastic and the child-of-honour was truely happy (mostly because he was allowed lemonade to drink, I suspect!!)
Each of the kids also got a goody bag, with lego crayons and a lego colouring book, balloons and chocolate. Very cute!
And he got his scooter. I have to say I’m stunned at how these things can cost so much, but even I can ride it and it is pretty fun!!!
