Evandale Village Fair and Penny Farthing Championships 2013

 

 

Every year Evandale host a Penny Farthing Championship and village fair.  It is such a fun day out, we don’t attend every year so as we hadn’t been for a while, we walked up the road to the event.  It really is a lot of fun watching the races, and people come from all over Australia and the world to enter.  My favourite part is the costume parade, and looking at all the lovely old cars.  Come along next year!

8th Birthday Lego Party


Lego Party, originally uploaded by astrogirl529.

Well this weekend my son turned 8. EIGHT? How did that happen? Anyway, he wanted a Lego themed birthday. I had suggested we just do something small at home as he doesn’t need a big party every year.

I googled Lego theme parties and came up with some ideas.
I decorated the kitchen with some rectangle shaped construction paper across the wall and primary coloured streamers. We filled a jar with Lego pieces for a guess how many game.

I made each child a placemat with Lego facts and pictures made in photoshop using some free Lego fonts (I just did a google search) and got them laminated, they then took these home with them.

We had a race for who could build the tallest Lego tower in 2 mins, a memory game to see who could guess what Lego was missing out of a selection of small parts. A race to see who could build their Lego motorbike first (these were also taken home as part of their loot bag)

We also played Lego bingo which I found online and printed at Lego Batman Comics

Of course we had a Lego cake, which I was very lazy and bought a rectangle sponge cake and marshmallows and just iced it. EASY.

We then ended the party with a water balloon fight!

The kids had a blast, and it was the quietest party ever (the Lego building part anyway!)
