Lego Hero Factory birthday party ideas
By mommaowls on January 28, 2013
My son wanted a Lego Hero Factory theme for his 7th birthday party. We went to Monkey Joe’s for the party, so all I needed to do was get a cake and put together goody bags. After much researching on the Internet and Pinterest, I found almost nothing. So I decided to design my own party favors. All of the files I designed are available for FREE…just look at the bottom of this post.
“Hero Punch” – First, I bought each child a “Kool-Aid Burst” juice box and designed a label to go around it – very inexpensive. I used white cardstock but paper would work too.
“Hero Bar” - Who doesn’t like a big candy bar? I decided to forego the stash of little junky candy and get something they’d really enjoy. I made a label for it as well. This size works well for the size of Snickers or 3 Musketeers and also Twix.
Bookmark – I design a bookmark for every kid’s birthday party I host, so here is my Hero Factory version. The text is “Be a Hero – Read a Book.” Print on cardstock or laminate plain paper.
Hero Factory stickers – I wanted to print a Hero Factory label, so I bought Avery 22807 Print-to-the-Edge White Round labels (white, glossy, 2″ in diameter). I designed the logo in Photoshop and printed it through the Avery website. I gave each child a sticker in their goody bag and also used one on the outside of their bags. Lucky for the girls, I started running out of ink so they got a pink one!
Hero Factory name labels – For each child, I designed his/her own name label with a different character on it. They look a little like trading cards. I found a website with photos of all of the Hero Factory characters. When I looked at my guest list, I looked at the first letter of their name and tried to find a character’s name that started with the same letter. For example, I used “Jawblade” for a “J” name. It worked out in every case except for two kids. I have included a PDF file of this for you if you’d like to just print out character cards or write in the child’s name yourself. After I printed these, I laminated them but that is optional.
Goody bags – I bought white paper lunch bags in the grocery section. I put on a Hero Factory sticker on one side . I folded over the top and hole punched the top. With ribbon, I tied on each child’s name label.
Cake – My one great find on the Internet was a Lego Hero Factory cake topper. This website (Single Source Party Supply) has many themes, and you can personalize your cake topper. Once they ship it to you, you place it on your cake before the party. Very easy!
Thank you notes – Remember the circle labels I made before? I had extra labels so I used them to make thank you cards. I used plain white cardstock and put a sticker on the front.
