Another Lego birthday!!! This makes my 3rd Lego party. At least I have it down to an art at this point. However, this was my first BOY'S lego party so I got to at least change the colors up a bit this time.
For the invites, I got our old Lego Duplo pieces & built them into 4 rows about 6 inches in length, then wrote all the party information on the actual lego pieces. I took the pieces apart & put them in a little bag & took them to Bladen's friends. They thought it was the coolest invitation they had ever seen. It really was cute.
I used a tablecloth & plates on my front door to make a giant lego so everyone knew which house the party was at.
We have an amazing candy store near our house that has lego candies so I made a "guess how many legos are in this jar" game.
A new trick I learned this time around was that Amazon sells lego people from China super cheap. I got 20 random lego people for $5. Granted it takes 2 months to get to you, but I ordered early & boy was it fun for the kids at the party.
I also found some yellow buckets at our dollar store near the sandbox toys & decided to use a sharpie to draw lego faces on them & use them as goody bags.
Good luck finding a lego pinata. I did find a Mario ? box piñata & just added yellow plates to it to make it "somewhat" resemble a lego?
Bladen was SO happy & SO excited about his party.
I made lego cupcakes in his favorite lego colors. I have a silicone lego mold that I used chocolate melts to make chocolate legos in & added them to the tops of the cupcakes.
To start the party off, we turned on the Lego movie while we waiting for everyone to arrive. I also had some lego coloring pages set out. It cracked me up that all the girls colored & all the boys watched the movie.
The main game for our party was a lego buiding game. I let each guest pull a lego person out of my bowl (the ones I ordered off Amazon) & they had to create a story/setting for their lego guy. I poured a bunch of legos in the middle of the room & they got right to work.
They could have done this for hours. I'm not kidding. I had to pry the legos from their hands & MAKE them go get cake & ice cream. Seriously, if you're ever doing a lego party, just pour legos out & let them build for 2 hours. They'll do it & they'll love every minute of it.
They were all SO creative too. They had full on stories of what they built & what their creations did.
The pinata was a big hit too, once we pried them all from the legos. Being a bunch of 7 year olds, they knocked it open pretty fast though.
Bladen's favorite part was eating cake & ice cream. He was SO proud of those lego cupcakes & it made me SO happy. What a sweet little guy.
He has made some really good friends here in CA. He got some really fun presents for his birthday.
Overall, it was a very simple, yet fun party. I'm glad he loved it.
Happy Birthday Bladen!
