Lego Hero Factory birthday party ideas

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.

    These are great ideas thank you so much. My soon to be 3 year old loves Hero Factory and his party is this weekend so I have a busy week a head of me. Could you tell me what font you used for the words on the Hero Punch? I love the font and I want to make some that say Hero Water! Thanks

      Hi! I used the font Denmark. I don’t remember if it was already installed in my regular fonts, so if you don’t have it, you can find it here for free: http://www.searchfreefonts.com/free/denmark.htm
      I did the font color in white and then put a thick black border around it. The border made the letters look closer together. Let me know if you have any more questions or need help in making a water label. Have a great birthday party, and hope it all goes well!

        Thank you so much for your quick response. I made my water labels and look fantastic. My other question is how did you decorate for this party? Thanks.

        • Amy January 30, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

          I actually didn’t decorate at all because it wasn’t at my house. We went to a bounce house place, so all I had to do was the goody bags and cake. Maybe you could print out pictures of some of the Hero Factory characters and hang from the ceiling or put on the wall. You could use any color of balloons and streamers since the characters come in all different colors. I find a lot of my ideas from this website: http://www.birthdaypartyideas.com/html/lego.html . Or you can try Googling for some ideas. Sorry I can’t be of much help!

    Hi! I’m planning to make labels to go on Koolaid Burst bottles for my son’s Skylanders party. Do you recall the dimensions of yours? Thanks!

    • Amy August 4, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

      Hi Lindsay! The dimensions of the bottle label is 6 inches wide, 2.5 inches high. Good luck!
