I did make the cupcakes from scratch and I decorated the treat bags by applying round pieces of construction paper to make them to look like Legos (yes, idea found on Pinterest).
Tim actually had a great time "building" the candy blocks to go on the cupcakes. He's my best helper. ;-)
And I had a bowl of miscellaneous Legos at the table in our party room so before the kids left they either made something with them or grabbed a handful to take home in their treat bag, to play with later.
I also found adorable Lego-like candles at zee French store (a.k.a Tar-jay).
And I did not have to clean my house before OR after this party, so WIN-WIN!
P.S. Please make note of the way my two boys are hugging in this photo below. I do believe I'm going to crop everyone else out and print a large copy of just them together and put it in their room, so they can ALWAYS see how much the love each other... ;-) Good idea, right?
And hey, guess what!
