Invite Guests with Themed Invitations
Invite your guests to come and play with building blocks personalized invitations filled out with all your party details. These cute little invites will set the tone for your party and give your guests a smile as well! Be sure to include an RSVP date so you know how many guests will be attending and can plan your activities and menu accordingly.
Building Blocks Personalized Invitations
Have a little fun when decorating for your Lego birthday party. For easy decorating ideas, go with Lego City party supplies that have coordinating paper goods and decorations to make your party planning easy. Or, if you've got a little more time to put into your decorations and want to focus on the more basic Lego theme instead of sticking to just one of the many Lego series that are available, stick with paper goods in primary colors like red, blue, yellow, and green. Mix and match the colors to make your table settings pop, for instance, combine a bright red tablecloth with green plates and yellow plasticware. Have your Lego fanatic put their Lego skills to good use and create wild centerpieces for the party with their own Legos. Not only will they love showing off their favorite Lego creations, but the Lego centerpieces will be a fun addition to the bright, basic table settings.
For decorations, if you're not going to use the Lego City theme, and are going to go with the bright primary colors used in the basic Legos, use yellow construction paper to cut out Lego heads to decorate the walls. Add in some paper streamers to match the rest of your color scheme and you'll have one colorful party space!
Eats and Treats
Cake and ice cream is the standard fare ate a kids' birthday party, and any local bakery can come up with a Lego themed cake if you're not willing to take on the challenge in the kitchen. If you've got some baking skills, you can create a Lego cake on your own using a rectangular cake, some smaller cupcakes as the pegs on top of the Lego blocks, and a little fondant to cover it all. Or, instead of a cake, go the non-traditional route and make cupcakes for the kids to enjoy. Frost them in the same primary colors you're using in your color scheme and create Lego heads to top them with by dipping marshmallows in yellow candy coating and drawing a face on with a food marking pen. These cute little cupcakes will be a huge hit!
Lego Themed Activities
Have a few Lego-related activities planned to keep the kids amused.
- Cover a table with many small Lego pieces. Give each guest a straw and a small Lego plate. Set a timer and see who can fill their plate with the most Lego pieces using only their straw!
- You can purchase small Lego kits at discount stores for cars, mini-figures, or other fun items. Have a grab bag and let each guest pick a kit to build.
- Let the kids build a Lego car of their own and have a race to see whose will travel the fastest!
- Create a Lego twist for Pin the Tail on the Donkey and make a cut out of a Lego figure out of construction paper. Blindfold each guest, give them a Lego head and see who can get the head on the Lego figure!
Lego City 7" Plates
Before each guest heads home, pass out Lego loot bags filled with candy building blocks, construction hat LED keychains, a Lego minifigure or two, and some Lego City stickers. Your Lego birthday party is sure to be a hit with the guest of honor and all their friends this year and the only problem you may have is trying to top your party next year!
