My two boys turned three and five this year! I have no idea how that happened! One day I was holding my oldest in the NICU and the next thing I knew he turned 5. This summer we spent 4 days at Lego Land, California and our boys loved every minute. I wasn’t surprised even one bit, when they said they wanted a Lego birthday party, in fact I was relieved! I’ve said this before, I DON’T craft. Legos however, I can do! Rectangle and circle decorations are right up my alley! I’m all about those basic shapes for keeping things easy!
If your kids want a Lego birthday party this year I’ve got a few EASY decorations, party favors, and games, that will help you throw your party together in no time!

- Lego Banner: My 5-year-old even helped with this one! We cut about 12 rectangles, and 6 circles for each rectangle. I did use a 2 inch Circle Punch to help get those circles done quickly.
- Balloons: We went VERY simple this year with yellow balloons! If you really want to take things up a notch you can decorate simple Lego faces on the balloons. We ran out of time, so I skipped that step!
- Lego Cake: It really doesn’t get any more basic than this. We used 2 different sized cake pans, a large cake pan for the bottom sheet and a square cake pan for the Legos on top. Then we used mini marshmallows for the circles on top. Some food coloring and frosting and you’re set!
- Legos! You’ll be surprised how easy it is to decorate with actual Legos. We decorated the table with Lego Mega Blocks. We also set up Lego stations for the kids to play at. The Mega Blocks were a huge hit with the toddlers and babies.
- Build Your Own Lego Car: We ordered about 30 Mini Block Vehicle Sets for the kids to put together while at the party. This had a dual purpose! Not only do they make great favors for the kids to take home, but we had the kids put them together at the party and used them for our Lego Cup Race Game!
Easy Lego Games:
- Lego Stations: As kids arrived we had several simple Lego stations set up for play. We used Mega Blocks, and Duplos for the babies and toddlers, and regular Legos for the bigger kids.
- Pin the Head on the Lego Guy: I had my husband draw a SIMPLE shaped Lego body on poster board, and then we gave each kid a small square plate with a simple face drawn on it. Each kid had to try and get the head on the lego guy while blind folded. This game is always a hit!
- Pinata: You can’t go wrong with a pinata. My kids LOVE hitting things AND there’s candy involved. The kids all squealed with delight when we announced Pinata time!
- Decorate and Dress Your Lego Guy: This was great for the crafters at the party. I traced and cut out a basic Lego shape figure and t-shirts for clothing. Then we used stickers we had hanging around and we got some wiggle eyes!
- Lego Cup Race: This was the final game and proved to be the best. My husband created this simple race track using a 6 ft. table and some electrical tape for the lines on the road. The kids each took turns racing their Lego cars (party favor gift) down the track! My talented friend made this video and it makes me laugh every single time I watch it!
Towards the very end of the party (after everybody sang the birthday song to the boys) we had a special surprise for the boys and our friends and family!
and the back said…
The grandmas were pretty excited about the news and there were even some tears!
I was so focused on the grandparents that we almost forgot to tell the boys what was happening. Chris leaned over and told Siege (our oldest) that there was a baby in mommy’s tummy. He was thrilled!
Our newest addition is scheduled to arrive Mother’s Day 2016 and we couldn’t be happier!
A great time was had by all. These birthday celebrations always make me reflect on how blessed we are to spend our lives surrounded by so many amazing friends and family members that love and support us.
