LEGO Party

     When my brother turned 8, he was just getting into LEGOs. Now it seems every little boy has a LEGO stage (between ages 6 and 12...be prepared!). What a wonderful excuse for a LEGO themed birthday party!
 
What you need to know:
The theme colors were red, yellow, green, and blue.
This was a very simple party.
The invitation is not shown, but we used small match boxes from Paper Mart, an online company, wrapped them in red, yellow, green, or blue paper, and attached small adhesive raised dots (1/4") with same-colored hole punched dots on them. A little unassembled LEGO guy was inside, and we typed up a simple invitation to hand-deliver with it.
 
Monster cookies (recipe at the bottom of post), theme-colored napkins, and buildable candy!

Each person received a LEGO set to build during the party which covered party favors as well!

Building, building, building

Simple gift bags for the LEGO creations to go home in. We don't ever want to lose pieces!


Monster Cookies

6 eggs
2 sticks of butter
1 lb. brown sugar
2 c. white sugar
9 c. oatmeal
4 tsp. baking soda
1 ½ lbs. peanut butter
½ Tbsp. corn syrup
½ Tbsp. vanilla
8 oz. M & M’s
8 oz. chocolate chips


1.    Combine eggs, butter, peanut butter, corn syrup and vanilla; beat well.

2.    Beat in the sugars, using mixer for this.  (I use my paddle attachment.)

3.    Stir in remaining ingredients.

4.    Shape with small ice cream scoop and put on greased cookie sheet; flatten slightly.

5.    Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

6.    Let cool slightly before removing from pan.

     A simple party, fun activity, and yummy cookies!
