This is my oldest boy. This LEGO lover turned eight, and we decided to celebrate his big day in a big way. With the new LEGO Batman movie coming to iTunes on May 19th, and to DVD and BluRay on June 13th, there was no doubt that LEGO Batman would be the theme of this blue eyed boy's birthday. I kinda made his dreams come true.
His love for LEGO runs deep and is true. Now, if you have a LEGO lover at home, you too, can create a LEGO Batman party. I am here to help with a few awesome tutorials and ideas, tested and kid approved. We want to thank our friends at LEGO for providing the LEGOs for the party and some of the items in the goodie bags!!
The day before his party, I put together some little thank you party bags to give each of the party guests. Party prepping is totally my jam.
I printed off the batman symbol that I found from a simple google search, and glued them onto some black gift bags that I found at my local Target. You can also get black bags here.
A silly straw, candy, LEGO sticker books, LEGO mini figures, LEGO batman movie book, LEGO luggage tags - here, here, and here, finger lights, stackable crayons, and glow sticks were part of the goodie bags.
The bags looked pretty dang cute sitting on the cake table waiting to be taken home by little dudes and dudettes.
I was amazed at how committed the children were to building their little Brickheadz. There was certainly a sense of accomplishment as each child completed their masterpiece. I loved seeing that! It made this mama's heart happy.
Here they are proudly showing their creations. Cousins make the very best of friends.
This homemade piñata, inspired by LEGO Batman himself, was quite the highlight of the party.
I have created a little tutorial just for you. Yes, YOU can make this!
Just check out the video below.

To make the bat sign, pull up an image online and freehand the bat on black poster board. Cut it out and paste it onto yellow poster board. Round the edged of the yellow board (I like to use a small plate and trace a curve on each corner, then cut) and you have the bat sign!
It was quite the party. Happy Birthday sweet boy of mine. So glad and grateful you were the one who made me a mommy.
