LEGO Party Games

The 9 year old boys had such a blast at the party that I thought I’d post the games, we could have played each of them for so much longer.

Design your own LEGO® man: I had this activity for kids who were early and while waiting for some who were late.  Click on the picture to get a full size version.  I just put them on the floor with a tub of pencils.

Pass the brick: a small LEGO set wrapped up to look like a LEGO brick (just use bright paper and draw the circles on top).  Pass it around, when the music stops if you’re holding it you are out.  Last one in wins.  This was much better than pass the parcel for this age. As each kid gets out give them a lolly or prize.

LEGO Bingo: Bingo using single lego bricks to cover items.  I made my own bingo boards.  Click on the image to download 30 different boards.click to download lego bingo game for lego party

LEGO chocolate game: just like the ordinary chocolate game using a lego dice.  For the uninitiated – get 3 dress up items, a lego dice, a fork for each child, a knife and a block of chocolate on a plate.  For dress ups we used a pair of fake ‘LEGO man’ glasses, a ‘LEGO’ fire-mans helmet and ‘LEGO’ Indiana Jones satchel bag.  Each person takes a turn rolling the dice.  When they roll the multi-coloured side it is their turn – they put on all the dress ups and using the knife and fork they quickly cut and eat one piece of chocolate at a time until someone else rolls a multi.  This continues at a frantic pace until the block is gone.  (Note if you have a kids with allergies or who do not like chocolate – a rare breed – they can still play, on their turn they can feed it to whomever they choose – and get a replacement lolly or sticker for each square they give away).

Treasure Hunt: Hide gold coins around the garden and get the kids to search for them.  As they find them they run back to you and put them in the ‘LEGO vending machine’.  The machine is just a decorated shoe box with a coin slot, if you put a glass jar inside it makes a nice noise when the coin drops in. Inside the back of the box you can hide your prizes, as the kids put a coin in the slot send down some stickers, a small lolly or a lolly pop.  They can only bring one coin at a time, this helps control it so that one kid does not get all the lollies, which is what usually happens in treasure hunts.

Tallest Tower: We sorted our LEGO into colours and set it out on the bench in bright trays.  (I kept all the specialty pieces and mini figures away upstairs). For this game put a timer on and explain to the kids whoever has the tallest tower when the timer goes off wins.  Give a certificate for the most spectacular crash, creative tower, tallest tower…

Strongest Bridge: The kids loved this game and wanted to rebuild but we were running out of time so had to move on.  Set up something for your bridges to go over – I used a sawhorse at maximum width.  Give the kids a set amount of time to build the strongest bridge.  Then line up and test them.  I bent some thick wire into a horseshoe shape with hooks at both ends.  Placed this over the bridge and added weight 250g (8.82 ounces) at a time.  You can you ziplock bags filled with rice, soft wrist weights or anything which will not damage your floor when in falls.  Amazingly the strongest one held 5kg (11.02 pounds) so make sure you have enough weight on hand.

Creative Cars: Everyone was given a bag with some basic car parts, there was a container of wheels on the table and they could use any of the bricks from the middle.  The cheapest way to get wheels, windscreens and steering wheels was through bricklink.com where hundreds of suppliers sell LEGO by the brick.  Check the postage on overseas ones first to make sure they are reasonable.

Car Race: After some food we then went outside and raced the cars on the driveway.  We raced three at a time and then did a final with the winners. There was an award for the fastest and the one that went the furtherest.

Pinyata: We finished off the party with a pinyata.

LEGO Party Prizes:

For prizes LEGO itself was too expensive so I bought a DK star wars lego sticker book
and cut up the stickers from the back of the book and put bundles of them in little packets with a lolly. You can also get a LEGO City Sticker Book depending what your LEGO fan likes the most.

 

lego party builders certificateFor each building game we had several winners.  I used an old Myers LEGO master builders certificate that was on ‘toltoys kid’ blog, I erased the writing on it in photoshop, cleaned it up and then added my own text such as ‘most impressive crash,’ tallest tower’, ‘most colourful bridge’, ‘fastest car’, ‘architectural design award’…  each winner received a certificate and a bag with stickers and a lolly.  Click on the image to get a full size jpg.

LEGO Party Food:

We had normal party food plus a few themed items such as lego man biscuits, a ninjago cake and LEGO head cheese and crackers.

    Hello! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a
    lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write
    in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

      hi river falls, Yes running a large website takes time, for example I spend between 4 and 6 hours every week reading the 650+ comments and answering questions just like this one :) All the best with your blog.

  7. Robin says:

  8. Holly says:

    I just wanted to say thank you for all your great ideas and hard work! We can’t wait to play Lego Bingo this weekend at my son’s party!

  9. Andrea says:

    Wow, I have to agree with the first comment – the best Lego party ideas I’ve seen by a long way. My son turns 6 in July and I’ve promised him a Lego party. He’s hysterical with excitement already and, I must admit, I’m a bit excited too now that I’ve seen this! Thank you.

  10. I love your ideas!! I’m bookmarking this and plan to come back to it as I plan my son’s 6th birthday.

    Ann – just wanted to thank you for the fondant tutorial.. today was my son’s 5th birthday party & we had looked online together a few weeks ago (typing Ninjago Lego cake into google) & your cake appeared – my son was adamant about Mommy making ‘your cake.’ So my first foray into making, coloring & shaping fondant per your online videos (huge thanks for Lego logo video!) & cake was phenomenal. Some of the kids (and Moms) in the know, recognized the black/red Ninjago arena around cake’s border – so clever. Am excited to work with fondant more – was always a bit intimidated by it – thank you for making it so accessible.

  12. Kelly says:

    Thank you for all your information. Found this to be very helpful, I am planning my son’s 6th birthday and all he wants it Star Wars lego. Love the create your own legoman and the other ideas. I did however create my own bingo sheet using Star Wars Lego characters before I saw this site. They are all great ideas!

  13. Melissa says:

    Oh my gosh I LOVE this site and your party. I’m in a panic trying to put together my son’s 5th birthday party for this Saturday. I have a 6-week old and an 8 year old as well and just didn’t get on it this year. He wants a Ninjago themed party, so I am scrambling. This was a big help. (I also had a rush delivery of the minifig cake pan and I found an Etsy crafter who has made a Ninjago pinata for us). I’m planning to use minifig cut-outs for the kids to decorate their Chinese take-out boxes for take home treats (ninja rubber ducks, figures etc.) Yours were the VERY BEST I found. Thank you so much!

    • ann ann says:

      Sounds fantastic Melissa, with a six week old I think you are definitely excused for rushing to get it done. Love the idea of putting the mini-figure cut out on the take-out boxes. Hope it all goes well.

    • Sanjay says:

      This is what I have to look forward to, huh? Just a quiet, orelrdy assembly line to the table to cheerfully accept their hunk of cake and move on? You make it look so easy, girl … :-)

  14. Lisa says:

    Awesome party ideas! I’m about to throw a Lego party for 9-year olds this weekend, so your site was very helpful. I LOVE the gingerbread men you created, although I unfortunately won’t be attempting these this time. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Nancy says:

    love these ideas! I can’t seem to get the design your own lego man to work, when I click, nothing happens – can you email me the link?

    • ann ann says:

      Hi Nancy, Thanks so much for letting me know… the link is now fixed, if you have any further problems please let me know.

  16. Susan says:
