Everything is Awesome! Party

My co-worker and I were singing the LEGO movie song, “Everything is Awesome!” when we had an ah ha moment! Why not do an “Everything is Awesome! Party” for our kids in grade school that incorporates all their favorite fandoms right now?!?! We focused on Minecraft, Star Wars, My Little Pony, LEGO, Superheros, and Frozen.

We ultimately decided that we would choose a several different crafts/activities, provide a theme-based food, and play The LEGO Movie in the background.

Observations

This was a fairly cost effective program that the kids really enjoyed. The largest expense was food. We didn’t know how many people would show up, so we opted to go for middle of the road and hope for the best.

I would recommend that you make sure all the activities are appropriate for everyone in attendance. We decided to have a perler bead station and asked that only kids in 3th-5th use this station. However, our program was open for kids in grades 1st-5th. Many of the younger kids wanted to do station, and we ended up having quite a few parents creating the artwork for their kids.
