Looking for new and creative ideas for a Lego party? Come look at these 43 best steal-worthy ideas for lego party decorations, food, games, and favors.
Hooray! It’s time for another reader request!
I love finding party inspiration for you guys. It’s so much fun to come up with ideas for party themes, even when I’m not hosting the party myself.
(Confession: I may actually geek out a little too much. What can I say? I just love finding amazing party ideas!)
This week, we’re looking at the best ideas for lego party decorations, food, games, and favors.
Whether it’s for a boy or a girl, a 4 year old toddler or an 8 year old tween, these are the best Lego party ideas for busy moms who want an awesome celebration with that unique DIY party feel.
Free Printable Lego Party Banner
Let’s start off with a fun freebie! I’ve got a set of free Lego party printable banners for you to download.
There are two color schemes: the classic Lego primary colors, and a more feminine color scheme for the girls. But who says they’re really only for girls. You get both in one pack, so feel free to mix and match all of them together for a totally unique look!
Even better…the letters themselves are made from Lego bricks. How fun is that?
When You want a DIY feel, but don’t have time:
Sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) life gets in the way of our grandest party plans.
Between work, school, and trekking kids to extracurriculars, we just don’t always have time to make every single detail for our kids parties.
This is why I love Etsy so much. You can get gorgeous, custom, hand-made ideas for a lego party without actually having to make any of it yourself!
Now, giant letters for party decorations are a huge trend right now, but they can be just as huge a pain to make.
These free standing foam letters come in a variety of colors and sizes, and look just like lego brick letters!
Can’t you just see your kids’ name center stage on the party table?
Wood forks and spoons are so much fun, amiright?
These stamped wood forks and spoons are super cute and festive with their colorful blocks lining the handles. And after so many years in catering, seeing that they’re made with food safe ink makes my heart happy.
Not only that, but they’re a great choice for staying eco-friendly. The wood is harvested from sustainable forests and the wood utensils are biodegradable and compostable.
Handmade Lego head masks would be a huge hit for a boys party. I can already see my 4 year old running around with one now. Strike that, the 7 year old would get in on the action too!
Each of these masks is hand cut from felt and then embroidered to create the design. Then, it is sewn together and the elastic is triple sewn so that they’re made to last.
So much better than cheap party favors that get tossed within a week!
Lego head confetti would be a great way to add a unique touch to your party.
I just love the fun little winking faces and big lipstick lips on some of these pieces.
Plus, with nice big pieces, they’re fantastic decorations to add as a scatter around your party buffet, around the favors, or anywhere else that needs a little extra touch.
Beautifully decorated cookies are one of my favorite things to give away as party favors. Now, I know that kids don’t need more sugar, but when they look as good as this, you don’t need to hand out a lot.
Plus, these lego decorated sugar cookies are less likely to end up in the trash bin, and are practically guaranteed to be a hit with the kids.
How fun is this Lego sprinkles mix? In classic primary colors, it’s the perfect color combo for a lego party.
Use it to cover cakes and cupcakes, dipping iced cookies, or even add them to some homemade marshmallows. Yum!,
DIY Lego Party Decorations
If you happen to snag a few minutes between activities to create something fun, then you definitely want to check out these ideas for lego party decorations.
In addition to the free banner printable I shared above, you can find dozens of different Lego party printables available on Etsy - like these photo booth props.
Party printables are seriously my favorite way to get started decorating. (Which is why I love to share so many of them!)
Choose a full party package (which usually offers the best value), or just buy the items you need. I bet you can find it there!
Now, this Lego party table runner from DIY Party mom is just too cool.
She used plastic mesh canvas (the kind kids use for embroidery) to create a colorful Lego decoration for a Lego themed family party.
She even shares how she made the entire project so that it folds up for storage!
There are tons of Lego party box tutorials out there, but I love how Wunder-mom shares a video tutorial AND a printable template to use for making your own.
They look like they’re just the right size for a few standard size legos or some small candies.
You know you’ll have at least one extra jar hanging around the house by the time your party hits, so why not turn it into this awesome Lego head marker holder?
This would be such a great addition to a quiet station for kids to play at during the party.
And then, the birthday boy or girl will have it to hold their markers long after the party is over.
If a jar is too small, you might want to consider this repurposed corn starch can turned Lego head.
Can’t you just see a table lined with these and filled with legos for kids to play with? Or you could fill them with other craft supplies to let the kids get really creative.
I love that this is a craft made with supplies that you probably already have in your home.
So, there’s lots of fun inspiration in this Lego Movie 2 Party from Cookies Coffee and Crafts.
Jenny combined a great combination of store bought decorations from places like Party City with DIY Lego party decorations to create a truly unique event.
But my favorite part of this party is the welcome sign, which reads “Awesome Party Inside.”
Such a simple concept, but such a fun way to welcome your guests!
More Ideas for Lego Party Decorations:
* Make a Lego brick backdrop using poster board for the shapes, and colorful round paper plates as the studs.
* Make the birthday kids’ name or age in Legos and have it displayed on your party table
* Wrap brick-shaped shipping boxes in solid wrapping paper and create a tower of stacked Legos (bonus points for having one or two that stick out of the side) or even hang smaller, lightweight boxes from the ceiling like you would a tissue paper pom pom
* Use a Twister mat as a tablecloth
* Hang a streamer of yellow balloons with Lego faces drawn on them
* Place a bunch of Lego bricks in clear vases or apothecary jars.
Ideas for Lego Party Food:
I don’t know about you, but I think finding creative ways to display party food that fits your theme is just so much fun.
Lego parties are no different.
In addition to some of the ideas listed in the parties shown above, here are some true wow-em Lego party food ideas you can easily incorporate into your party.
The perfect mix of easy-to-make and impressive-to-see, Lego Rice Krispy treats are definitely going to be a hit.
This Mom’s Confessions shares all the details for making her version of this treat with just a few simple ingredients. Easy peasy!
Working with silicone molds is so much fun! I’ve made heart and star-shaped sugar cubes with ours, but I love the idea of using molds to make treats like these gelatin Lego bricks and mini figures.
It may seem as simple as making a regular box of jello and putting it in the mold, but it turns out that there are some special tips and tricks you need to follow to make sure they come out just right.
Thank goodness Mary at The Flying Couponer has all of those tips for you!
Why not put that silicone mold to even more work and make Jolly Rancher Lego treats, too?
I love how colorful they are with the three different colored stripes.
But make sure you read the full recipe from Princess Pinky Girl. She includes important tips to prevent bubbles in your lego treats.
Talk about cute! Lego head marshmallow pops are just so bright and cheery!
Sarah from Savoring the Good uses some similar techniques for her Lego head marshmallow pops as I used for our alien marshmallow pops, but I think I’m going to have to use her grill basket trick for drying the pops next time!
So, first off, how fun is it to have that lego man actually holding the cake pop?!
Somebody, pleeeease find a way to make that work on a party table and send me a picture. I’m totally in love.
BUT, that’s not what makes these Lego cake pops from Spaceships and Laser Beams so awesome. Nope.
They’re awesome because they don’t include any rolling. Rectangular Lego brick shape for the win!
More Ideas for Lego Party Food:
* Lego Brick Sandwiches, made in a variety of shapes and sizes
* Make a square pizza and arrange pepperoni slices in four round circles
* Make the inside of your cake a checkerboard cake
* Serve square finger foods like Chex mix or Cheese-its
* Cut fruit into square and rectangular cubes - melons and pineapple would work well for this
Lego Party Games
Now, you don't need to schedule a party to the hilt, but it's always a good idea to have a few games and activities up your sleeve to keep things moving along.
Okay, so I mentioned Randi’s party food earlier, but she was a total rockstar in the games department too!
I’m a big fan of including a variety of different party activities for kids, and Randi did a great job mixing things up.
Their party included games like coloring pages, a group-based tower game, and basic free time with the blocks. It’s just enough for the kids to keep from going wild, while also providing them the freedom to have fun!
Now, this is a totally different spin on the Lego party entirely.
Sharon turned her backyard into a kids’ dance club with just enough Lego to get the theme across.
More Ideas for Lego Party Games
* Create a series of Lego building challenges and have the kids race to complete them
* Guess how many bricks are in a jar
* Give the kids yellow paper and have them make their own Lego faces
* Hide bricks around the party area for a Lego scavenger hunt
Ideas for Lego Party Favors
No one wants to let their guests leave empty handed. Here are some fun ideas to keep the Lego goodness going long after the party is over.
Okay, so I know the idea of giving soap out as a kids’ party favor seems odd. But when it’s filled with brightly colored Legos, I bet the kids will love it!
Another fun alternative is to find clear bottles of the backpack/purse sized hand sanitizer and add a few of the tiny Legos inside.
Maybe this will even make keeping clean hands cool!
Alyssa created these Lego boxes to wrap gifts, but you could just as easily use the idea for party favors.
Start saving your boxes and bottle caps a few weeks before the party, and then just have a craft-fest while catching up on the latest This is Us episode.
Let’s face it Legos are expensive.
But this Altoid tin upcycle makes it affordable to gift a few bricks to your guests...and in a super fun way.
I can already imagine all the ways that kids can use these. It actually makes me want to go buy Altoids just so I can get the tin. Ha!
What an awesome idea! Jessica combined both a party activity and party favor into one craft.
All she had to do was paint the Lego head shape onto some fabric bags. Then the kids got to do the rest!
It doesn’t hurt that the bags are so cute, too!
More Ideas for Lego Party Favors
* Lego shaped cookies and treats (like the ones above)
* A small baggie filled with Legos (Check your local thrift and consignment stores for deals)
* Make necklaces with Lego bricks and this little charm
* Glue a few Lego bricks to these frames (the bright colors mean you don’t need to completely cover the frame!) and add a special message or photo
