LEGO Birthday Treat Bags

How to make these awesome LEGO Treat Bags:

I purchased the brightly colored bags at Target. Then added my LEGO printout – made from bright paper also found at Target –  and a name tag I printed at home.

I purchased the LEGO Birthday Fun Favor Packs from Toys R Us and gave each boy a LEGO set. I also bought the crazy straws at Toys R Us for $2. I found LEGO City stickers on Clearance at Walmart for $.75 each. I also added a LEGO man coloring book – simply print out and sew together with yarn. ( I didn’t snap a photo of these, but they were super cute!)

And I attached one of homemade LEGO key chains – instructions are in an earlier post.

Blue LEGO Cupcakes

 

Super Fun Blue Lego Cupcakes

When the 6 year old suggested BLUE cupcakes for his birthday, I found the perfect recipe here. It makes the coolest color blue cupcakes ever.

They came out great – even though I have never made a cake from scratch before! I did also have to purchase this frosting decorating set at Walmart to make them even prettier.

I just added the brick candy – which I found at the Mall of America candy store for $11.69/lb! – to complete the LEGO theme.

The 6 year old LOVED the cupcakes (as did all my coworkers who got the leftovers).

LEGO Keychains

I’m going to be posting a lot of fun LEGO things these next few days. I’m throwing a LEGO themed birthday party for my little man, who’s turning 6 next week! Very exciting for him and me.

So here’s how to make some awesome LEGO key chains:

1. Raid the LEGOs. Find the blocks you want to use for the key chains.

2. Purchase Key Rings & Chain at local craft store. (About $3 for both items)

3. Get out your power screwdriver/drill and find your smallest drill bit.

4. Screw a tiny hole into one side of each LEGO close to the edge.

5. Attach chain & key ring.

This is a great gift or activity for any kind of party or gathering. And the fun part is that kids can keep them on their backpacks and attach their own LEGO creations to them.

More Cake Pops Please

I recently discovered Cake Pops! They are so super yummy and easy to make. Just follow the step-by-step instructions here. Bring to any family event or school function and you will be the envy of all the other Moms!

This pic is my first attempt and they came out great! So good, in fact, I had to make another batch right away.

Try them. You won’t regret it.

Free Board Game Deal!

This week’s Kmart flyer has Candy Land and Chutes & Ladders on sale for $2 each. And with your Sunday paper coupons or coupon from Playsaver.com you get $2 off. An amazing deal!

The Perfect Snack – and it’s FUN!

Trader Joe’s has the perfect kids snack: Applesauce Crushers. They are awesome! My son won’t eat applesauce any other way.

The best part about them is they can go anywhere with you. Throw them in your purse or diaper bag or a kids lunch box. They do not have to be refrigerated before you open them (only after). And they have a cool twist-off/on cap that kids love.  And the kids don’t have to finish it all, you can put the cap back on, put it in the fridge, and eat it again later.

I just bought some over the weekend. The box of 4 pouches was $3.99. A little expensive for applesauce, but the packaging is what makes my son eat them, so I figure it’s worth it. And the packaging also makes them super-convenient. I can pay a little more for that too.

I’ll have to experiment with them to see how well they freeze. It may work to freeze overnight then put in a lunchbox in the morning so it will be cold for lunchtime.

(I was not compensated in anyway for this post. In the future, I would be open to sponsored posts. The opinions posted here are mine.)

At Last! Kids Eat Free at a Great Restaurant!

We stopped into LeeAnn Chin today for lunch since it was requested by the 4 yr old. (When asked where he wanted to go for lunch, his first response was, ” Not McDonald’s – Yuck!”) And we notice they have a sign out front stating “Kids Eat Free”.

Kids eat free every Monday & Tuesday nights with the purchase of an adult entree. Now this is something I can get excited about! We love LeeAnn Chin and it’s healthy food options. The employee informed me that this great deal is only available at the Eagan locations. And that your child must be present to get the free meal.

I checked their website and couldn’t find anything stating this new Kids Eat Free deal. But will add more when we go back for Kids Eat Free night!
