Jackson's LEGO Builders Birthday Party!

There was no school last Friday, so we planned Jackson's Lego party for that day to kick-off our Spring Break! If you didn't see the Lego Party invites I sneak previewed last week, have a look here. Later this week I will also post some "how-to's" for some of the Lego crafts I did for this party. Enjoy!

THIS LEGO PRINTABLE KIT IS NOW AVAILABLE IN MY SHOP!






I made these Lego frames by hot gluing real Legos onto wooden frames from the craft store. My idea was to take a picture of each party goer and their lego creation and put it in the frame to give them at the end of the party. But the kids liked the Lego men I put in the frames so much, I didn't bother and just gave them the frames as-is. The kids really liked being able to put their Lego men on top of the frames. They were a hit!

I went to the Party store and bought the cheapest piñata I could find that was shaped like a box. Then I added red streamers and four Solo Cup tops to make a Lego piñata. Then I strung it up on our trampoline and let each boy come up one at a time and take a couple of swings at it.
I picked up these cute Lego Loot Buckets from the Party store too and added name tags so they wouldn't fight over who got which color. They got to scoop up as many Legos as they could from our Lego stash, plus the candy from the piñata and a few other goodies like the Lego man Soaps below and Lego man Flashlight Key Chains. Everyone's buckets were filled to the rims when the left.

Everyone wanted to take home our coveted Lego men and I did not want to disappoint, since we have enough for a small country. So I put one Lego guy for each guest in little bead jars from the craft store and called them "Lego Freeze Chambers". This got lots of wide eyed oooooo's and ahhhhhhhhhhhhs from the group. They couldn't wait to pick out their very own Lego Freeze Chamber!

The Grand Finale was blowing out the candles on the yummy Lego Cakes. We actually had to light the candles twice because the kids were so excited the first time around they all blew out the all candles while Jackson still had his eyes closed making a wish. 
I think everybody went home happy.
Happy 6th Birthday Little Man! I love ya!

  2. Your parties are always so creative. You really thought of everything. The boys looked like they had a blast! Would love to feature it.

  3. This is awesome, and so inspiring!!! My son has a feeding disorder called eosinophilic esophagitis, and has multiple food allergies. So, I have been searching for a way to have a "cake" for his birthday without having a real cake (because he can't have any of the ingredients in a real cake, and most foods are off-limits to him)
    This inspired me to make a cake out of legos!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH for this idea, and for sharing it! I am now looking forward to planning his party, instead of worrying about it!

  16. Wow! I might consider doing ONE of the things you did... . How did you organize the building part of the party? Did you set out an allotted amount of legos for the kids to use and take home, or did they just build and leave the legos with your son? Thanks! Lori

  17. Hi Lori! We actually have enough Legos for a small country, so I let the boys fill up their Lego Loot buckets (from Party City) with some of our Legos, but you can certainly let them build to their hearts content and then leave the Legos. Might want to try the Lego Men in the Freeze Chambers (got the little plastic containers at Joannes). The kids were fascinated with those. Lego candy is also a great party favor (found on Amazon). Have fun! I know the kids will:)

  31. Hi,

    I'm planning a Lego Party for my Son's 5th Birthday and was wondering if you could help me out with finding the Lego loot Buckets you got for your son's party.

    I have searched google & ebay with no luck. I live in Canada though, so wondering if it might be a problem getting them up here?

    Any information you can give me would be great! Thanks.
