The party was a lot of fun and we managed to keep 11 boys and two little girls busy and happy for 3 hours with all indoor activities.
If you search for "lego party ideas" you will get tons of starters for your party, but I want to highlight 3 places I liked the best.....
- Melanie at Ewehoo had some creative ideas for crafts and food. I borrowed some of her ideas.
- This site had the best games and activities ideas from all the sites I visited.
- One thing the kids thought it was cool in our party was that I used lego clip art from this site and made little signs to label all the activity centers.
We had 4 "challenge centers": #1 build your own cowboy lego and guess how many lego candies are in the jar. #2 Pirate Code (lego board game), #3 speed lego building challenge, #4 Blokus (not lego but one of Caleb's favorite games).
We also had a table with a large lego bin for free play.
After the kids played for about an hour. We sang happy birthday and ate the "lego food" and "lego cake" (see below).
Then we played hot potato with a jar full of lego men. When the music stopped the kid holding the jar was eliminated but also picked a lego man to take home. The last kid took all the leftovers!
After this we revealed the winner of the lego candy and the speed building challenges. We opened gifts and that was the end of the party!
The boys took home a bag with lego candy, their lego men and super cute lego soaps that my friend Brandi made.
And here are the pictures.....
