Lego Birthday Party Ideas & Free Printables

Updated on February 3, 2017

I've spent many many hours trawling the web and collecting ideas and have found heaps of different LEGO party ideas by other creative mums with LEGO-loving kids. I found heaps of great free printables and other great ideas for you to hopefully be inspired by. I've included products available to buy online. It's all here on the one page. By creating this page, my aim was to save you the hours of time spent having to find it all yourself.

I really hope this is a useful tool for many mums and dads to create a fun-filled and memorable party for your little one!

I believe there's lots of fun to be had when creating a party. The only thing stopping you is your imagination and your willingness to go that extra creative mile! :)

PRINTABLES

Invitations

This invitation is the size of a standard photograph: 6x4 inches. You can print them at your local photo shop or even upload it to a print-on-demand site and order them to be printed on photo paper (choose matte printing if possible so it's easiest to write on). Or you could print at home on photo paper and set it for 2 or 4 to a page and then cut after printing.

If it's printed on glossy paper, the only problem will be that it won't be that easy to write on. You'll need to use permanent marker for the writing to show and stay without smudging.

Game Ideas

Once you've got your invitations sent out, you'll need to start planning activities for the party itself. Here are some ideas:

  1. Highest Brick Tower: Use just bricks (or any Lego pieces if you prefer) to make a tower. Whoever can make the highest tower that can remain standing for at least 5 seconds wins!
  2. Building Race: Give each party goer a small activity $5 Lego building pack. Do a ready set go thing and whoever can build the set first wins a prize.
  3. Car Contest: Award prizes for the best-looking car, the one that goes the furthest, the car that wins a race, etc.
  4. Toss the Lego Game: Set up buckets or paper rings of different colors that are each worth different points. The ones furthest away or smaller are worth more points. Have the kids take turns tossing Legos and whoever gets the most points after a certain amount of turns wins a prize.
  5. Best Figure Drawing: Use the blank Lego figure below and set up a coloring table. Each child is to create their own unique Lego figure. The best idea (chosen by the birthday child perhaps) wins a prize.
  6. Play Pretend: Most kids these days have seen the Lego movie, and if they haven't, they'll still recognize characters such as Lego Batman and Wonder Woman. Print out some of these character masks listed below and have them play pretend or perform in skits.

Party Favors

After the party is over, you might want to hand out some gift boxes or party favors. Here are some ideas and printables that will help.

Stickers!

All kids love stickers. With these printables, you can print Lego stickers at home and use them as party favors or include them in crafting activities at the party itself.

Make Your Own Ninja Ninjago Balloons

If your little one is particularly into Ninjago Lego then these balloons are going to make them super excited!!

The folks at Halegrafx have created these awesome eyes repeated on a sheet for you to easily print on your home color printer.

Print them directly onto a full A4 or Letterhead sticker sheet and then cut out to easily stick directly to your helium filled balloons.

If you can find a Lego-shaped mold, it's really easy to make Lego chocolates.

Put chocolate buds in microwave safe bowl. For about a cup full microwave for 2 minutes. Don't worry if the buds still look whole because you'll stir it and they'll slowly melt away. You don't want to overheat the chocolate as it will burn.

Then just pour or spoon the chocolate into the mold. Freeze or refrigerate and voila! When they're hard you just turn them upside down and gently tap or twist them out.

Sensationally talented Sweet Sugar Belle has written a step by step cookie tutorial.

If you haven't already seen Sweet Sugar Belle's blog then you must have a look around while you're there. Not only does this gorgeous girl make the most fabulous cookies ever, but she shares all her tips, how-tos and recipes with everyone!

I made her cookies, and honestly, they were the best sugar cookies I'd ever had! Every time I see her work, I marvel at her creativity. She is a joy to behold.

Party Photo Gallery

I hope these photos will give you heaps of ideas and inspiration for your own party. Sticking with primary colors is always a great way to keep a theme working well. In this one, they stuck to the same primary green, primary blue, primary yellow and primary red colors throughout and it makes the party really pop!

Kirsten (a mom) has some great details from her party

  • Black marker on yellow cups is all it takes to create these awesome mini figure head cups!
  • Marker on yellow bags with a cut out top piece stuck is how to create Kirsten's mini Lego-head goody bags!
  • I love her idea of the table runner which she made herself using paint and a texta/marker lid!! So easy...
  • And her idea of home-made LEGO wrapping paper is great and the perfect activity to get the kids involved.. She used duplo, stuck it in the stamp pad (or you could use paint), and then used them like a stamp! (The same could be done with lego bricks for sure).

And Kirsten proves that making a racetrack doesn't have to be expensive or take forever! She used a fold up table ... left one side folded to create the steep dip and then added a bottom piece for the cars to glide off the bottom. Just tape on some lines and you've got yourself a ready made DIY LEGO car race track!

Tau's 5th Birthday Lego Party! Awesome Ideas here!!

Tau's mum, Sue, made chocolate covered marshmallow lego-head pop treats! Her inspiration came from Amy (also shown on this page).

Photos and ideas used with permission from Sue.

Making marshmallow candy pops are easier than you might expect!

You have two options for making the marshmallow base.

1. When Sue made her mallow men . . . she cut a mini marshmallow in half and then attached the cut stickier side face down on a larger marshmallow.

or

2. Amy sliced the bottom off a large marshmallow and then cut a smaller circle out of the cut piece (Amy used a frosting tip to create her circle cut outs). She then attached the circle with stickier cut side facing down on top of a large marshmallow.

Although for cake pops, it's recommended to use candy melts, I've since realised that candy melts are really just thicker chocolate. Sue actually found it quite a long task having to make her marshmallow pops with candy melts as it was a thick paste to begin with and even after adding oil it was not thin enough for dipping. She ended up having to use her cake spatula to even out the chocolate which took a lot of time. She says if she were to do it again it would be with yellow colored white chocolate (so I recommend using normal white baking chocolate).

Heat your white chocolate and add the yellow coloring. (To color chocolate, you must use a powder or oil based food coloring! Do not use standard food colorings as they are water based).

When I melt chocolate I heat about a cup of chocolate in the microwave for no longer than 2 minutes. When I pull it out of the microwave most of the buds are still formed, but that's ok. I just stir for a while and they all melt and combine together. (You don't want to overheat chocolate as it will burn).

Then just attach your lollypop sticks to the marshmallow bases and dip away.

Sue used black frosting for her faces which look great. You can also use edible black pens (edible pens won't show as dark as frosting, and the lines won't be as thick).

How cool are the lego pop holders in the photo? Sue's obviously used rectangle polystyrene. She cut rounded pieces, then glued them together to look like a Lego brick, then painted them blue! So creative!

Make a Photo Cut-Out Stand

After finding a giant cardboard box on the neighbour's front lawn, Sue thought up the idea of a photo face cut-out stand for the party.

When I saw her I idea I realised this would be perfect to use for your party thank-you cards. You could get a photo of each child (and if you make a double cut-out stand, it could be a photo of both parent and child) in the cut out and then get the photos printed on cards (Zazzle can do that) or just print them out on standard photo card stock.

Then, handwrite a thank-you message. What a fabulously personal card. It will be a keepsake many of them will keep forever.

Lego Racetrack

Sue also made a wonderful party game that is perfect for Lego parties.

She set up a table and filled it with just Lego pieces, and the kids spent as much time as they wanted building their own Lego racing cars (as did most of the parents too!).

When they'd all finished they raced them! Sue had a very special drag racing track made for the occasion, but you could create any kind of racing track (downhill preferred of course).

      This lens is SO AWESOME! I've bookmarked it for future reference!

      One suggestion to add to all your other great ones...I find random LOTS of lego pieces sold on Ebay a lot. They often have lots with random lego pieces for $10 or less. You could get one of these and add handfuls of pieces to a lego party bag cheaply (and if you decide to add this suggestion to your lens you can also add an ebay module searching under LEGO LOT.)
