8th Birthday Lego Party


Lego Party, originally uploaded by astrogirl529.

Well this weekend my son turned 8. EIGHT? How did that happen? Anyway, he wanted a Lego themed birthday. I had suggested we just do something small at home as he doesn’t need a big party every year.

I googled Lego theme parties and came up with some ideas.
I decorated the kitchen with some rectangle shaped construction paper across the wall and primary coloured streamers. We filled a jar with Lego pieces for a guess how many game.

I made each child a placemat with Lego facts and pictures made in photoshop using some free Lego fonts (I just did a google search) and got them laminated, they then took these home with them.

We had a race for who could build the tallest Lego tower in 2 mins, a memory game to see who could guess what Lego was missing out of a selection of small parts. A race to see who could build their Lego motorbike first (these were also taken home as part of their loot bag)

We also played Lego bingo which I found online and printed at Lego Batman Comics

Of course we had a Lego cake, which I was very lazy and bought a rectangle sponge cake and marshmallows and just iced it. EASY.

We then ended the party with a water balloon fight!

The kids had a blast, and it was the quietest party ever (the Lego building part anyway!)

    Thanks for the comments, It was a great party, simple and easy, without too much outlay. Some people go to extraordinary lengths for their kids birthday parties, which I find a bit excessive.

      He was a gift for my son, he is a torch. I think they were available at K-Mart at the time, not sure if they still have them or not.
