Tan Tan's Lego Star Wars Party

We celebrated Tanner's 5th birthday a little early this year due to the fact he was leaving early with his dad on Friday and wouldn't be back until Sunday morning.

Tanner wanted a Star Wars party and it had to be "Lego" Star Wars. I didn't have much prep time for this one, nor do I know much about Star Wars...this party took a lot of googling.

I made light saber invites to go along with the theme and we held it at the park. Tons of kids came...more than I'd planned for...but as the saying goes the more the merrier right? I pre-made light sabers from pool noodles and duct tape...the guests were in charge of decorating them with black electrical tape. When they were all finished decorating they took off to the play ground to fight. We also played a game where they had to use their light sabers to keep balloons in the air.

The kids were all given storm trooper masks to play pin the blast on the ship and we had a Darth Vader pinata. Tanner took one whack with the light saber bat and that's all it took! Candy was every where and picked up quickly. I have to laugh that despite the activities planned all they wanted to do was fight each other.

We ate pizza complements of Dr. Baker's moving gift. And had cupcakes surrounded by chocolate legos, topped with little chocolate storm troopers that I'd made. We ended the evening with Tanner opening his gifts and a great big thank you. The kiddos all left with gift bags of legos and lego storm trooper chocolates, Yoda rings, stickers and pencils.





































































Happy 5th Birthday my little Tan Man!

 I've had many requests for the pattern to these invitations so I've decided to add them here.  Feel free to email me I'd absolutely love to share and help in any way I can.  Unfortunately  I had to recreate a pattern by tracing what I had because the computer I had it on crashed... let me know if any of it need to be explained or if you need any help.

Because my computer that created these crashed I no longer have the set up or the font I used. I found the Starwars font on line for free by searching Google and these are the words I used.

    1. Thank you so much! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner I just noticed your comment and hope I'm responding in enough time for you to be able to create them if that was your plan.

      The area the card slides from has a backing. I cut out the shape twice and used glue dots to hold them together. The card has a 1/4" longer width notch at the bottom so it doesn't completely pull out. If you'd like a pattern you can email me at jennlsmota@gmail.com. I'll scan one in and get it right to you along with the word document I used so you can just replace names, dates, etc.

      Thanks again for the complements,
      Jenn
