Lego Birthday Party Ideas

Updated on December 7, 2014

Every Kid will love a Lego Birthday party!

Lego Birthday Party Ideas: Are you wondering how to have a Lego birthday party? Do you have a kid who is a huge Lego fan?

My son is a huge Lego fan. He wanted a Lego party for his sixth birthday. With a big box of assorted bricks and 8 friends, we had an awesome Lego birthday party.  He had a Lego Birthday cake, Lego games, and Lego party favors.  This was one of his favorite parties.  It's so easy to do! I have included ideas for games and activities to make your Lego party a success.

Make a Lego Birthday cake

The Lego brick birthday cake is one of the easiest to make. Simply bake a 9x13 cake and six cupcakes. Turn the cupcakes upside down on top of the 9x13 cake and ice the whole thing in one color. I added the word "Lego" to the top of each circle with gel icing.

What is your favorite Lego?

What are your favorite kind of Legos?

Lego Party Games and Activities

Here are some ideas for games and activities to get your party started. Each game or activity has a description below.

  • Pin the logo on the Lego Brick
  • Lego toss across
  • Lego drop in the bucket
  • Lego tower contest
  • Building and racing Lego cars
  • Free play with Legos
  • Guess how many Legos in the jar

Game: Lego Toss Across

This game was played with rectangle Duplo bricks. I drew several different size and different color large Lego bricks on a piece of posterboard. I labeled each brick with a point value. I placed this posterboard on the floor. The boys then tossed six duplos onto the board and tried to have them land on the Lego bricks that were drawn on the posterboard. We tallied the points and the kids who got the most points won.

Game: Pin the logo on the Lego Brick

This game is played like "pin the tail on the donkey." For this game I drew a large rectangular red Lego brick on a piece of poster board. I made the rectangle and had the six circles on the top to resemble the brick, but I did not write "Lego" inside the circles. I cut the same size circles out of red construction paper and wrote "LEGO" on each one. The kids were blindfolded and had to "pin" their logo circle on the brick. I just used balls of tape on the back of each circle to make them stick. The one who came closest to putting his circle in the actual spot on the brick won.

Game: Lego Drop in the Bucket

For this game I cut the tops of of several plastic gallon jugs. I put the jugs on the floor. I had the boys stand on a chair above the jug and drop 10 Legos. The goal was to get the Legos into the jug. The one who got the most Legos in the jug won.

Game: Lego Tower Contest

I divided the guests into two teams. Each team had a box of Lego bricks. Then each team had to build a tower that would stand by itself within a certain time limit. At the end of the time, we compared to see which team's tower was tallest. That team won.

Building and Racing Lego cars

I got the small racers as a party favor for each boy. During the party, I had them build their race car and then we raced them down a ramp that I made from cardboard. The car that went the farthest won. To make it easier for the boys to keep up with their bricks while building, I gave each boy a plate to keep his pieces on.

Game: Guess How many Legos are in the jar

I used the candy Legos for this activity. I took a jar and counted out candy Legos. This is a great idea for the beginning of your party since not everyone arrives at the same time. As the kids arrived, I had each one guess how many candy Legos were in the jar and fill out a slip of paper with his guess. The one who guessed the closest got to take the jar home.

Get some Lego candy for the game and as party favors!

This candy looks just like little Legos! Perfect for "Guess how many Legos are in the jar game" described above or for party favors!


Free play with Legos

Make sure to give the party guests plenty of time to just play and build with any Legos you already have. This is where a large box of assorted bricks comes in handy. I'd suggest getting a box of basic bricks to use during your Lego party. My boys have a huge Lego table in the basement and the kids had free time during the party tocreate and play with all kinds of Legos. This is also a great activity to use as the kids are arriving.

Legos make great gifts! - Get some bricks for your party

A great assortment of bricks! Get a big box for the kids to play with at your Lego party and then send some home as party favors. Legos are the best toy ever!

How to Throw a Lego Party

How about a Lego Video Game? - My kids love regular Legos and the Lego Video Games

Need a present for a Lego lover? How about a Lego video game for Wii or DS, or Xbox?

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Nintendo Wii

This game has been played over and over at my house. Everyone enjoys it from my teenagers to my preschoolers. You can't go wrong with Star Wars and Legos!


Are you ready to have a Lego Party? - Do you like Legos as much as we do in our house?

      Yes, we LOVE lego and have several tubs. We always buy kits for christmas for everyone (including daddy) and spend the whole day building! One lego game that is fun is to put a small kit inside a ziplock sandwich bag. The child then has to build the kit from the instructions.... without opening the bag. My kids loved it!

      I loved playing with legos (and mine are still being used) All of my kids played with Legos...they love just hauling out the bricks and creating things out of their heads. And even the BIG kids get involved when the lego train comes out... they fill the living room with an elaborate railway.

      Another idea would be to invite a Lego Robotics Team from a local high school to do a Mindstorms demonstration for the party. Teams are often looking for service/outreach projects, so a demo opportunity might be a great idea.

      Awesome Lens! I grew up loving legos and have enjoyed duplos with my young twins. I can't wait until they are ready to graduate to legos. Then I can break out all my old legos. They are one of the few childhood toys I never got rid of.

      I used to put on LEGO birthday parties locally which resulted in me becoming known as "LEGO man". Small boys would run up to me in the grocery store crying "It's LEGO man!!!"

      I did i t in a rather different way than anything yo describe here: I took a large number of big, very detailed buildings that I had built (custom, not standard sets, and all with detailed interiors and removable roofs) and laid out a LEGO city in a room (around 20ft x 10ft minimum needed) with all the road plates etc, added cards, planes, boats, and hundreds of people, and then let the kids loose to play with it. The most popular model was a 29" long car ferry which carried 18 LEGO cars and trucks. There was also a big pile of pieces for the kids to build their own models, but they mostly played with the ready-built stuff.

      I found that once a couple of ground rules were set (no taking apart anything that anyone else has built, no taking LEGO out of the room) the kids were very respectful of the models, hardly anything got broken (and I didn't worry if it did: it's LEGO, right, you can put it back together again!) and although I think a few minifigs disappeared into pockets even that was pretty minimal.

      Oh, and girls love LEGO too. Even if it's not pink.

      Some great suggestions here, the more LEGO parties in the world, the better!

      My 'lego boys' are now 17 and 18 years old and this lens sure brings back fond memories... or maybe not so fond - like when there were legos in every room and I'd step on them barefoot (ouch!) or when it seemed that 'picking up legos' was just one more part-time mom job. Love your lego party ideas! Yes, we had a few lego birthday parties in those days, wish I'd had these ideas then. Once I made lego picture frames (just glue legos around a plastic frame) and took photos of every kid at the party, then slid them inside the frame to take home as a party favor... a big hit! I found one of those recently during a move (from a decade ago). By the way, legos sell VERY well on eBay, so do NOT let them go for pennies at a garage sale. I made hundreds of dollars from the lego collection my sons no longer care about, some sold by the pound in ziplock bags...and the little mini-figures are an especially hot item.

      You got my attention because I love Lego, and I have run Lego based parties with robot building before. Kids love Lego too - so it is a great way to grab their attention, and they learn a lot from them. By the way - one minor nitpick - the plural of Lego is Lego, like sheep.
