The key to throwing a party is to enlist the troops – even when they’re six and eight and even when the party is for them!
I had Hunter and Hallie stuffing little bags of lego candies – making patterns – we should’ve just counted it as homework for the day!
We also wrapped chocolates for the gift bags – which ended up not going in the gift bags until they were going home because it didn’t cross my mind that the chocolates would melt in our warm fall weather!
The biggest hit was the lego jello. My kids love jello molds and we have them for all the holidays. I saw these on Amazon and I was skeptical that they would actually work – they were awesome! Besides, jello always tastes better when it’s in the shape of something cool.
