What Do I Need For the Party?
In addition to basic LEGO party supplies, like plates, cups, napkins and decorations, you may want to consider purchasing, borrowing or renting the following items for your LEGO or LEGO Star Wars party:
- LEGO bricks, search yard sales and online auctions for deals
- Minifigures (look for Battle Packs and Collectible Figures)
- LEGO board games such as Minotaurus, RoboChamp, Creationary and Pirate Code
- A table and chairs
- A LEGO video game such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Batman or LEGO Harry Potter
- A Pinata
Get your guests excited for the building event of the year with creative LEGO invitations. Here are some ideas to inspire your creativity:
- Choose from our personalized LEGO invitations or blank LEGO invitations for unique and easy LEGO party invitations.
- Attach your LEGO invitation to a personalized LEGO favor like a bag tag or zipper pull.
- Seal your LEGO invitation with a personalized LEGO sticker printed with your party details.
- Write your party information in permanent marker on a card made out of a stack of LEGO bricks. Take apart the LEGO card and mail it in a padded envelope to your guests. They will need to assemble the card in order to read the invitation!
- Include a minifigure with each invitation. If you’d like, the minifigure could look like your child!
- Find a picture of James May’s LEGO house online that was built in 2009. Use photo software to paste a picture of your child in front of the LEGO house. This will be the front of your card. On the inside you can include a cute rhyme such as:
It’s time to build, imagine and create,
Brad’s LEGO party is gonna be great!
We’ll stack them high and play games galore,
At the end of the day you’ll be begging for more!
LEGO parties are best held at home or a place where all the children can sit down at a table. This is because they will need a flat surface to build on. Once you have enough tables in place, here are some other ways you can decorate your child’s LEGO party.
- Choose a theme for your LEGO party such as LEGO City, LEGO Star Wars, Castle, Space or Construction (for a City theme). Then you can choose matching plates, cups, balloons and napkins for the party theme.
- If you don’t want to pick a LEGO theme for the party, decorate in bright colors such as yellow, red, blue and white.
- Tie balloons to construction cones around the room.
- Draw minifigure faces on yellow construction paper and hang them around the room.
- Build centerpieces out of LEGO bricks! You can use sets your child already has. Build towers or cities. In addition to centerpieces, build your own utensil holders. Check out our LEGO Pencil Cup activity for instructions.
- Pass out plastic construction hats to your guests to wear while they build. They can take them home as favors at the end of the party.
- Give each child a medium sized bowl or shoebox and half a pound of LEGO to use during games. This will give the children ownership of their bricks and make it easy to clean up when it’s time to eat.
- Use personalized placemats to designate where each child should sit during the party.
In addition to pizza, chicken fingers, hamburgers or hotdogs, you can add some LEGO themed food into the mix. Here are some suggestions.
- LEGO Brick Sandwiches: Cut cheese and turkey (or ham) sandwiches into rectangles. Then use a can of Cheese Whiz to draw two rows of four circles. This will make the sandwiches look like 2 x 4 LEGO bricks with studs.
- Minifigure Sliders: Prepare small hamburgers and draw minifigure faces on the hamburger buns. Use ketchup or mustard to draw the face.
- LEGO Pizza: Bake a rectangular pizza (or order one) and then slice it into rectangular serving sizes. On each slice, arrange pepperonis in two rows of four circles. Each slice will have eight pepperonis and look like a 2 x 4 LEGO brick with studs.
- Minifigure Faces: You can draw a minifigure face on anything that’s round including crackers, cookies, English muffins and cupcakes. Be creative!
LEGO Cupcake Idea
Impress your guests with some tasty mini cakes that look like LEGO bricks. Here are easy-to-follow instructions.
- Bake a yellow cake in a rectangular pan.
- Slice the baked cake into smaller rectangles and then arrange on a large serving platter.
- Make red, blue and yellow frosting in separate bowls by tinting white frosting with 2-3 drops of food coloring.
- Frost the rectangular mini cakes in the three different colors of frosting. You will have some that are red, some that are blue and some that are yellow.
- Create the LEGO studs on the mini cakes with marshmallows. To do this, align mini marshmallows in 2 rows of 3. If you’d like, you can use marshmallows that are already colored or dye them with food coloring.
- Serve the mini cakes on the platter and enjoy!
