DiY Lego Birthday Goodie Bags

Lego birthday
We are celebrating Eli's birthday this weekend, so we're getting ready! 
I want Eli to have an appreciation for handmade things and DiY-ing stuff, so I had him help me make birthday goodie bags for the kids that come to the party! 
Here's what we put in the bags:
monkey erasers 
Elias Lego Logo Stickers
We also made Lego People and Lego Brick crayons! Eli LOVED making them! 
Lego Birthday Builder Pack
So that Lego Birthday Kit comes with 10 Lego People and little Official Lego Builder cards, some stickers, a birthday card, thank you cards, and invites, it's totally worth the $19!
DiY Lego Birthday Goodie Bags
I got these Rainbow Happy Birthday bags on super sale at Target, they weren't Lego, so we made them Lego! I printed out this Lego head I created in photoshop onto sticker paper, cut em out and Eli put them on the bags! Tada Lego Bags!

I decided to print the Lego Head smaller on card stock for cupcake toppers!

Now the best for last! This was/is Eli's favorite! 
A few years ago I made Valentine Heart Crayons. I used a metal mold then.
The Lego molds are silicone, so I had to do things a little different (not much though). We had the Lego People mold for ice, I think I got it free on awhile back. You can buy them there or on Amazon - Here's both for sale!
To start I used the exacto knife and sliced down the crayon wrappers because they are VERY hard to peel!! Trust me! So Eli took the wrappers off and broke the crayons into pieces.

Then he put them into the silicone molds. We put the silicone molds on a cookie sheet, and then set the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.  I set the timer for about 6 mins and kept a close eye on them!
We let them cool and harden for about an hour.
They turned out pretty darn awesome!

We put them in little baggies so they wouldn't mark anything else in the goodie bags and sealed them with a sticker! Eli wants to make more! :)

We are still working on the Lego piñata we build, and we have a few more things to make!
 I'll share them with you all as people finish them! :) 
Let me know what you think or if you have any ideas for the party!

Becky- you are a superstar!! It all looks incredible!
I love that you get Eli so involved in DIY & craft - it's such a fantastic thing to do with him and to nurture his creativity like that deserves a gold star!
Good luck with the rest of the party planning! Hoping the party is his favourite yet :)
Huge luv,

Just the kids are getting these? Crap...I was really hoping to score one of these awesome goody bags ;)

So Awesome!! Wish you were my mum!! lol xx

I love how you took some plain old party bag and easily turned it into a lego one. The crayons are awesome. I love finding cute ice cube trays and using them for fancy crayon making. He's going to love his party.

I bet making a lego cake wouldn't be too bad. 6 cupcakes - cut off the tops and then put them on a rectangle cake would make a huge lego piece. Do you have cake ideas already though?

This is such an amazing tutorial! Now, one can easily make gift bags by themselves. I will surely try to make it this weekend.
