When our son Alex turned six we hosted a fun Lego birthday party for him! We invited his entire kindergarten class to join us for an afternoon of Lego games and creations along with some pizza and cake! It turned out to be one of the nicest kids birthday parties we've ever hosted! The kids were really into all of the Lego games and Lego activities -it was so much fun, and Alex felt as if he had a truly magical birthday party! Here are the details on all that we did:
Lego Birthday Party Stationery:
I created these invitations, thank you notes, and favor tags and printed them at home. The invites can be sent out via text or email, and the thank you notes are mailed after my son completes them.

Lego Birthday Party Set-Up:
Fortunately, we have a semi-finished basement where we can host get-togethers like this for the kids, and where the kids can run around and play when the weather is bad. And long ago, we invested in some folding chairs and tables that we can use for our parties. So we set up the room with the tables and chairs pushed to one side so we had enough room for games on the other.
Lego Birthday Party Order of Events:
I like to have an activity for the guests to do when they first arrive, which provides newly arrived partygoers an easy way to join in on the fun. In the past I used to lead the kids in “Simon Sez”, but I've learned a few things over the years!
First of all- some kids feel a little shy at first and it is hard for them to jump into such a silly game until they have had time to warm up, and secondly- for the non-shy kids- it waaayyyy amps them up. And now you have a jumpy excited kid who has a hard time settling down for the “real” party games!
So this time, we tried coloring pages, and it worked perfectly!
Next I grouped the kids together (no picking teams!) and set them up for a Lego relay race, where they had to scoop up Legos onto a spoon, race-walk to the other end of the basement and dump them into a cup. The first team to fill up their cup won!
I then had the same teams sit down with a big bowl of Legos, and asked them to build the tallest tower they could- but it had to be able to stand on its own- and they needed to work together as a team to build it!
After that, we headed back to the tables where Steve led the kids in making this adorable Lego snowman from a kit !
We ended our party games with the worm on a string game- where the kids have to eat the gummy worm off of the string without using their hands! Kids LOVE this game!
Then it was time for pizza and cake!
Lego Birthday Party Cake:
This was a simple cake that I pulled together by baking a sheet cake, and then cutting the cake into slices- longer ones would be 1×4 Lego bricks and smaller slices 1×2 Lego bricks. I used colored fondant to make the bumps on the top of the Lego bricks (I just rolled out the fondant and used a small biscuit cutter to cut out the circles).
And of course we topped the cake with these cool Lego candles !
How happy does Alex look surrounded by his brothers and sisters?
And of course, no party would be complete without handing the guests a goodie bag as their parents arrive to pick them up. Our goodie bag was filled with Lego brick candy – and you can actually build with it! How great is that?
It was truly such a great party- even I had a nice time too!
