Lego Birthday Party Ideas & Free Printables

Author:

I love being creative with a theme or visual subject. I focus on it and then search for matching or enhancing partners in the field.

All Things LEGO

LEGO party ideas by other creatives with LEGO-loving kids. I found heaps of great free printables and other great ideas for you to hopefully be inspired by and/or find useful.

Free Printables

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.

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 I thought of:

  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 10 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-designed 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 or by vote) wins a prize.

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.

Make Your Own Ninja Ninjago Balloons

lego-birthday-party-ideas-2

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.

Party Food

Themed snacks are always fun. Here are a few ideas for Lego-themed cakes and snacks that kids will love.

I've made a video of heaps of very cool Lego Cakes to give you lots of inspiration!

Make cupcakes and top with chocolate or candy Legos!

Make cupcakes and top with chocolate or candy Legos!

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

  1. Put chocolate buds in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. For about a cup full microwave for 2 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. Then just pour or spoon the chocolate into the mold.
  5. 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 lovely girl make the most delicious and creative 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 if you're planning a party, or perhaps it will just provide some fun eye candy or creative inspiration.

In regards to a party theme, 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 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).

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

Tau's mum, Sue created a Lego-themed party for her son.

Photos and ideas used with permission from Sue.

lego-birthday-party-ideas-2

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 cutout 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 required to create the momentum for the cars to race).

anonymous on February 24, 2012:

@Pip Gerard: Love all the ideas, but I must me blind also. Where can we find the link to the lego font?

I try to find a free ninjago poster, but unfortunately you don't have.

JohannaBaker on February 01, 2012:

Great lego lens, my kids played with it for ages and a themed party is wonderful!

Edutopia on January 15, 2012:

I disagree that the Lego party is a great idea for boys. It is a great idea for kids regardless of gender! My girlfriend has been a life long fan of Legos and our favorite shop to window browse at is the Lego Store. Great lens!

WriterJanis2 on January 14, 2012:

Love the Lego party invitation.

anonymous on January 11, 2012:

@Pip Gerard: where is the link to the Lego font? I must have missed it.

@Pip Gerard: http://lucasben10party.blogspot.com/

Ben 10 parties are so cool too, I did one for my sons 5th birthday, and another for his best friends 6th, the coolest invitations with spinning omnitrix are still talked about.

anonymous on September 18, 2011:

Best Lego part information site I have found, thank you.

@Pip Gerard: I still cannot get the LEGO font page to pull up. Are there any tricks. Love your site. Can't wait to start on my son's October birthday with all your help! Please e-mail if you do. ceccard1@hotmail.com

@anonymous: thanks for letting me know... all fixed now. :)

anonymous on August 22, 2011:

HI,

i-m looking for the lego fonts and was glad to find it here, but i clicked on the picture and said page not found. could u pls give me a working link. Thank you! Lovely page btw, great job! :) sam xx

Pip Gerard (author) on July 24, 2011:

@goldenecho: I'm so glad to hear that. Thanks for the suggestion. I have a bulk lot worth over $100 showing but that is pretty pricey. Will definitely find cheaper bulk lots to show.. thanks for the tip :)

DuaneJ on July 24, 2011:

Great lens...great party idea!

Gale from Texas on July 23, 2011:

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.)

Pip Gerard (author) on July 21, 2011:

@OhMe: oh thank you... ohMe :) Appreciate you taking the time... really I do...

Pip Gerard (author) on July 21, 2011:

Jeanette from Australia on July 16, 2011:

My son loved lego when he was younger. This is one party he would have loved =D

Pip Gerard (author) on July 16, 2011:

@bechand: it's a brilliant theme... so many options available and DIY stuff is so easy to make! I just made fondant mini figures this weekend on the weekend and they were so easy... and so fun! I'm trying to convince my boy to have this theme... but he's kind of got his heart set on Ben 10... will see... have 6 months to go :)

bechand on July 16, 2011:

we are seriously considering this theme for our next party - and as you know (you saw my wonka page) - we go all out for parties ... I have several months, still considering topics ...

Pip Gerard (author) on July 16, 2011:
