How to give a unique themed LEGO birthday party

Children of all ages love constructing interesting structures out of Lego bricks. Create a party they will never forget featuring these beloved toys that have been a staple in households since the 1950s. Children enjoy using their imaginations with the simple brick sets that you can buy in big boxes, so use those as a starting point for decorations, gift bags and party games.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Tablecloth and tableware in several bright, solid colours
  • Balloons, ribbon and streamers in similar colours

  1. 1

    Decorate with bright and bold colours that reflect Lego pieces. Red, green, blue and yellow make a great colour scheme for a Lego party. Use a green plastic tablecloth and add red plates, blue cups and yellow tableware. Adding balloons, ribbons and streamers in the same colours will add a nice touch.

  2. 2

    Create a unique Lego centrepiece with boxes. Save packages from boxed dinners, for example, or granola bars. Tape them securely shut and wrap them in varying solid-coloured wrapping paper. Make six or ten of these boxes to stack in a pyramid shape on the table.

  3. 3

    For a party activity, give each guest a large green Lego baseplate. This is a 10" x 10" flat Lego piece that is perfect for building on. For open-ended play, set the party-goers on the floor with a few boxes of Legos and let them see what they come up with in 30 minutes. Another option for a party game is to set a timer to see who can build the biggest house in five minutes, or perhaps the most creative animal. To make the game fair, arrange it so a different child wins each time and can take home a small prize, such as a Lego Minifigure.

  4. 4

    Use a large box of Lego pieces to create cool gift bags for the party guests. Clear cellophane sacks will make an eye-popping display with handfuls of random Legos thrown in among candy and other party favours.

  5. 5

    Before your guests depart, take a group photograph next to your table display. Print out a photo for each guest to take home, if possible, or make arrangements to deliver one at a later date.

Tips and warnings

  • When you send out invitations, request that each guest dress in a specific colour. For example, write, "Wear a red shirt!" on one guest's invitation, and, "Wear a blue shirt!" on another. This will add colour to your party and the pictures.
