Lego’s are an all time favorite toy and after so many years still a classic for everyone young and old. Wouldn’t it be great then to throw your young one a Lego party for their birthday?
The first sign that your guests are going to know that you’re throwing a special themed Lego birthday party is by the invitations. Sure you can go to sites like Zazzle or Festivity Favors for Lego invitations or you can do something fun and make actual Lego invitations. All you need is various sized Lego bricks and a thin Sharpie. Write the information on one side of the Lego and number the other side of the Lego, then place in a padded envelope and mail off. Your guests are sure to love the inventive idea and the young ones will love putting together their Lego invitation.
As for decorations? Think lots of primary colors. Consider having square clear jars filled with jelly beans or m&m’s in red, blue, yellow and green to decorate your table. Grab two sheets of cardstock paper in the same color and cut out circles from one of the sheets and attach to the rectangle sheet with a foam tab to give it a 3D look and make a Lego banner. If you really want to get creative, take a large sheet of bubble wrap and section off Lego pieces and paint it. Once it’s dry you can use it as a background to your cake table or as a table runner.
Food & Cake:
Keep with the Lego theme and make sure you serve Lego inspired foods. Simple sandwiches can be cut into rectangles and then cut small circles with a small round cookie cutter and “glue” with butter, mayonnaise, or peanut butter to the top or use rectangular salty crackers and round cheese to make the Lego pieces. You can also serve Lego rice krispie treats on a stick like the ones from Babble. A rectangular cake is the basis for your Lego cake but you can also make a regular cake and decorate with Lego head cakepops or some Lego candles from Fun Slurp.
Entertain your guests with a game of what else? Pin the Lego head on the body! It’s super easy to do just create a body out of cardstock to resemble the Lego man and then make several additional heads to pin. Play timed games to see who can built the tallest Lego structure or even Lego Bingo. As long as you have plenty of Lego pieces around your guests will surely find a way to entertain themselves.
A Lego party is a great and fairly inexpensive way to throw a birthday party with a little DIY and some imagination. For additional ideas go through the slide show and see what sparks your imagination!
