For the cupcakes, I made white cupcakes with whipped white frosting and chocolate cupcakes with whipped chocolate frosting, then they were all topped with little Lego Men that I made with colored white chocolate in silicon molds. They were very simple, but the kids and adults went crazy for them!
In the dining room, I used the table as a building table, which was a perfect gathering activity. Did you know that LEGOS just had their 60th anniversary?! And they just keep getting more awesome.
Looking at this table from left to right, here are the games we played.
- Construction hats were for the free building we did as the gathering activity while everyone was coming in. We wrote names on the little plastic hats.
- The little blue bowl has extra game prizes in it – M&Ms and Smarties.
- The green LEGO board with the whimsical buildings we call Treasure Island. My older girls made this for the party. They built this and hid Smarties all over the island. During the party, the kids went in a circle and took turns taking LEGO pieces off for 10 seconds at a time to look for the prizes. The kids really liked this game!
- The bowls of LEGOS, spoons, and orange construction cones were for the LEGO Race.
- The bucket has blindfolds and sandwich bags full of Duplos for Blindfolded Tower Building. Everyone was blindfolded and handed a bag of LEGOS Duplos. It was a hoot!
Prizes for the last game were homemade fruit snacks. I brought the kids to the table to eat their prizes and other snacks too. Then we sang Happy Birthday and had cupcakes. At this point I was thinking “Success! We’ve almost made it!”
Party favors were a big hit with the kids, especially Brian, who was really anticipating the little prizes since he saw me put the bags together.
In each bag:
- Building blocks car (from Amazon)
- Finger monster puppet (from Target)
- Kazoo (from Target)
- Small lazer gun (from Walgreens)
- M&Ms fun size package
Where Kids Always End Up
I’m so happy Brian’s party went so well! It can be tough planning parties in winter, because you can’t just have a picnic and outdoor games. I would definitely do a LEGOS party again though, because it was easy, but super fun for the kids.
