My son’s Lego® Birthday Party was so much fun! I’m happy to share our fun day with you!
Everyone loved the Fun Party Printables I designed! Each boy carefully chose their favorite figurine cupcake toppers when it was time for cake!

Fun Food Ideas
I made Lego crackers by cutting small circles out of cheese with my cake frosting tips and attaching them to crackers with cream cheese. But the most popular treat was the cheap cheese balls! That giant vase was gone very fast.
And of course these Lego Cake Pops were a big hit and later made all over the world for boy’s parties:-)
I put them in a bucket full of M&M’s, my favorite candy for decorating. Get directions for making Lego Cake Pops here.
Mr. Cool had a custom-made birthday shirt with coordinating party colors! I found a cheap shirt at Walmart and made this myself.
Lego Party Games
I started the party by having small Lego kits for the boys to put together until everyone showed up. First they got to make mini figurines by choosing their head, body and weapon!
I also had a jar full of Lego bricks and they had to guess how many to win a prize.
Then it was time for outside games. We started with a Lego Relay Race!
- I had yellow and red legos mixed in a bowl, each boy selected a Lego to find out what team they were on. So it was Yellow vs. Red! Which my son named Mario Blasters (Red) and Bowser Monsters (Yellow). (Don’t ask me what those names mean??! ha!)
- Then I put the Lego bricks in bowls by color and placed them at the end of the yard. Each team got a spoon and an empty bowl at the starting point.
- The goal was to run to the Lego bowl, grab a Lego and run back with the Lego in a spoon and drop it in the empty bowl. The team who filled their bowl first and ran through the finish line won a medal! If they dropped the Lego, they had to start over. It was fun and everyone ended up getting a medal!
Then it was out to the front yard for a Lego Hunt.
I chose 5 colors of Lego bricks and the fewer colors like blue were worth more points. So once they found all of the Legos, they had to do the math to see what their points were. The kid with the most points won a prize!
It’s never a party at our house without a piñata! I enlarged one of the Lego cupcake toppers for this custom piñata.
The boys had a blast!
The little sisters had a blast too! To entertain them, I had a bowl of water on a kid table outside with small sponges, droppers and cups. Then paint brushes and paint with water paint books. Girls are easy to entertain!
This was a very easy, laid back party and my son felt extra special that day!
The only thing I made from scratch was the Lego Cake Pops and Lego Crackers. Cupcakes and yummy Lemon Cakes were from Sam’s Club. I only wish I could make the icing look that good myself!!
