Batman Lego DIY Birthday Party Ideas
Jackson’s Batman Lego 4th Birthday Bash
Just going through my pics for the year and have to share some from Jackson’s big Batman Lego 4th Birthday Bash! It was so fun to put together and he sure had a blast:) Keep reading for some fun DIY projects…
I was on Pinterest for weeks and pretty much everything was DIY, except the amazing pinata by Aldi My Shop over on Etsy. Be sure to check them out for your next party, great price and the pinata was AMAZING in person. Jackson played with it for months after the party!
My favorite thing to make was probably the cake, it took forever but totally worth it;) I found the large Lego molds on Amazon, which also came with the little figures that I used for the goodie bags.
For the bricks on the cake, you can fill them with fondant frosting (be sure to press hard to fill the little pegs) and put them in the freezer for a couple hours.
For the figures, I just used Wilton Candy Melts and let them harden. A huge hit with the kids, so easy and you can find a lot of different molds. These are always a go-to for my party planning. The little men were adorable in the Treat Pop Tubes:)
The rest of the snack table features Rice Crispy ‘Blocks’ (again, just dipped in candy melts with M&M’s on top), 'Lego Parts’ sugar cookies (cut out of fondant), and 'Lego Head’ marshmallow pops (dipped in melts and drawn with these cool markers!).
My new experiment were these yummy dipped Oreo’s. I started by dipping them in the melts (for best results you might want to invest in one of these handy tools), and was really excited to try these new edible sugar transfer sheets. They are SO easy, as the melts are hardening I just placed a pre-cut circle of these dots on top and peeled away once dry. Voila! S0 easy and so cute, you can get tons of designs/colors and even have your own designs printed!
The food was fun to make but I think Jack and his friends enjoyed the goody bags the most:) Along with the candy, we added a DIY Bat Signal flashlight (made with vinyl cut on my Silhouette machine) and a Lego Man trapped in soap. Jackson thought this was the funniest idea and helped me make the little soaps.
If you know Legos, you know they are not cheap! My biggest challenge was finding affordable figures to put in the soap. After much searching, I discovered if you are willing to do a little building you can buy a giant bag of figurine parts on Ebay for a decent price! So Jack and I spent one night creating a bunch of men, we had fun with it:)
I have to admit I had never made soap before, but it was so easy. I got all my supplies at Joann’s. You buy this giant block of clear soap and melt it, once it’s liquid you can mix in any scent oil you prefer. I used these molds, but there are several different shapes and sizes available. For this project I filled the mold half way and left it to harden a bit. Once it was a little tacky I threw the Lego man in and held him in place with a toothpick until he stopped floating up:) At that point I poured the rest of the soap in and waited for it to harden. That’s it!
Overall it was a great party, time to start planning #5 in May already!!
