The Lego Movie Birthday Party Invitations and Ideas
For The Lego movie birthday party invitations you could make your own Lego block invitations. All you need to make these is some colored card, a one inch hole puncher and some 3D foam tape (all of these can be picked up at a craft store). Punch out a couple of circles with the hole puncher and when you have enough stick them onto a plain piece of card with the foam tape. This will make them raised and give them a 3d look. Here's an example of one of these DIY Lego block invites.
If you would prefer to send out personalized lego movie birthday party invites that have been professionally done, ebay and etsy is a great source. You'll find sellers who offer a variety of invites themed around the Lego Movie ranging from photo invitations to ticket style and most sellers can even make you a custom style if requested.

The Lego Movie Birthday Party Decorations and Ideas
For this theme we have to acknowledge that it's going to be quite colorful. The Lego Movie birthday decorations are not available yet but there are so many awesome ideas for bringing some of that Lego magic into any room reserved for the party.
Print of this free Lego Happy birthday banner templates (courtesy of bigKlittleG). Once printed cut around all the letters and paste each letter on red card so that it looks more like the Lego logo and it will make it sturdier. Then it is just a case of stringing them together and hanging up the banner.
As there are not a lot of posters for the movie right now you could use Lego Movie coloring pages instead. Just print them off and have your little ones color them in, before sticking them on the walls as part of The Lego movie party décor.
For theme colors use yellow, red, blue and green as these are usually the colors that normal Lego's come in.Spread these colors around by using latex balloons and streamers in these colors. Make bouquets with the balloons by tying 3-4 balloons together with ribbon. Fill them with helium and allow them to float. As a nice touch have a Lego figure hanging of the ribbons to make it look like he is hanging on for dear life.
In the movie there are lots of worlds that they visit ranging from the Wild Western to Cloud Cuckoo land where they meet Unikitty. Ask your child if there is a particular land that they liked and base some of the decorations around that. Yes it would be a Lego movie party but it would also have a cool side theme thing going on too like cowboys or ponies. It only makes the party that little bit more special and unique for your little one.

The Lego Movie Birthday Party Favors and Ideas
There are tons of Lego birthday favors available so finding a few great favors won't be too difficult. Here are some DIY Lego movie party favor ideas for people who don't mind getting stuck in and saving a few bucks while they're at it.
Free Lego Movie character masks can be printed off and attached to craft sticks so guests can hold them up to their faces. You could even punch a hole in either side of the mask and attach some string so guests can wear them.
Mason Jars would make great Lego candy holders. Obsuessed has a great tutorial showing how to make Lego storage jars. She used baby food jars (but any mason jar will do), yellow spray paint and a black sharpie pen for drawing on Lego character faces and expressions. This was all that was needed to make them.
You could also make your own Lego brick keychains as Julie from Life as a Leach did for her son's party by drilling a hole through normal lego bricks and then attaching a keychain through the hole. She also shares more DIY favor ideas for Lego Favor bags and Lego brick magnets.
The lego movie birthday party favors can even be as simple as a cello bag with a few lego bricks inside for guests to build something fun. You could have a label which tells them what to build, your child can help you decide the pieces to include and what they build.

Fill them up with candy, little treats and fun favors. The bags feature characters from the movie including Emmet,Wildstyle,Good cop/bad cop, Lego Batman and more. (Click image to be taken to item page)
Lego Candy Blocks
You remember those Mason jar favor holders we talked about further up these candy lego blocks would be the perfect thing to put in them. A cello bag full of these would also work well.
What's cool about these candy bricks is that you can actually build them like real Legos... So beware they are not the softest of candies for that reason, but an awesome addition non the less.
The Lego Movie Minifigure Party Favors
Lego Movie minifigures would make the perfect party favors for a Lego Movie theme party. The only catch I've found is that ordering them online may be a little expensive in comparison to picking them up from store. The figures are sold in mystery packs and you get one figure per pack, so you really don't know what Lego Movie character figure you'll get. I think this makes it an even better party favor choice as it adds to the drama. The best stores to find these Lego Movie mystery figure packs are Toys R Us and Target where you'll be able to pick up a few for around $3 per figure. (If you want to check out the Individual figures or even order the full collection without the "mystery" click the image above to be taken to Amazon.com who also have the Lego Movie sets in stock as well)
Lego Birthday Favors - More Lego Inspired Party Favor Ideas
Emmet is your average Lego construction worker at the beginning of the movie and all through the adventure he is wearing his construction vest. These vest would be good favors to help guests get into character. You could even use them as a place holders by hanging them on the chairs around the party table.
Chocolate Lego Bricks
Make some Lego Chocolate bricks by melting some chocolate and pouring it into a Lego brick candy mold. Leave it to cool down, then put it into the freezer to solidify and you'll have these tasty treats. You can make white chocolate bricks too as seen in the picture and even add some food coloring to make colorful bricks.

The Lego Movie Candy Wrappers, Favor Labels and Tags
These Lego Movie stickers, wrappers and labels will be perfect for matching favors with the theme. Use Lego Movie candy wrappers for wrapping up candy bars, Lego Movie goody bag stickers can be applied to paper lunch bags or even solid colored favor boxes or Lego Movie juice box stickers for fun beverages.
The Lego Movie Birthday Party Cake Decorations and Ideas
If your planning on making the lego movie birthday cake a great way to decorate is with edible cake images. There are plenty of Lego movie edible cake images available from sellers from ebay and etsy who offer plenty of images to choose from. Images can be personalized with a birthday message and are simple to apply to any cake. For decorating Lego movie cupcakes there are even edible images to decorate them too.
Lego brick cake pops are easy to make as well if you're using the Lego molds. To make them just put a little bit of melted candy or chocolate in every cavity on the tray and then cut up pieces of cake that will fit the cavities and put them into each one making sure to press down on the cake a little to make sure that there isn't any bubbles trapped in there. Then fill each cavity up with melted chocolate/candy so that the cake is totally engulf. All that's left is to leave the tray to cool by popping it into the freezer for a while so that they harden and then to pop a lollipop stick into them after.
If your child has any minifigures these would make great Lego movie cake decorations. Just place them on the cake. For the new Lego Movie minifigures Target have a few in store but you can pick them up online from Amazon.com who have all the Lego Movie minifigures available for order.

Free Lego Movie Cupcake Toppers
These printable Lego movie cupcake toppers (courtesy of Halegraphx) would make great Lego movie cupcake decorations. Click the image to download the file to your computer before printing them off (cardstock paper is always my preference). Once printed, cut the toppers out and use glue to stick them to craft or lolly sticks. Make them doublesided so that stick is not showing.
Lego Blocks Cupcake Wrappers
These lego brick cupcake wrappers would be the perfect way to add the finishing touches to Lego movie themed cupcakes.
The wrappers feature colorful lego brick designs and are best used when wrapped around regular cupcake liners to give your cupcakes a look to match the theme.
The Lego Movie Birthday Party Food Ideas
For your Lego Movie party foods you don't have to look too far for ideas as we can gather plenty from the movie itself. Before the movie we had no idea what llittle Lego men ate when they got hungry and apparently they love chicken wings. Remember the line "Who wants to eat some delicious chicken wings and get crazy!!"... This was one of the statements made by one of the construction lego men when work was over and they were deciding where to go hang out. you could type and print this quote and put it in front of a serving of chicken wings or just label them crazy chicken wings.
There are also mentions of how much they love croissants from one construction Lego man and of giant sausages from another. A serving of each would be great.
You could also make mini figure cookies or Lego brick cookies. A Lego Mini figure cookie cutter would be useful for cutting the shapes but you could always do it free hand especially if you want to make cookies like the ones shown in the pic above.However a cookie cutter would be handy for cutting sandwiches and rice krispie treats into Lego themed shapes, which would make easy finger foods that kids can just pick up and eat with out much fuss.
For something a little healthier make Lego fuit salad by cutting up strawberries, banana's or pineapple, blueberries and kiwis to make a colorful fruit palate for kids to tuck into - to make it more appealing you could put them on skewers so it's easy for guest to put on their plates.
Provide a bowl of smarties, some crackers, a little frosting to act as glue and some cheese and other light treats. Make a workstation for building your own Lego snack.

How to Make Crispy Beef Tacos
The references to tacos in the movie makes it a good food to include on the party menu. There is even a Taco Tuesday man character. Here is a good video tutorial for making crispy beef tacos every one will love regardless of what day it is. Tacos are pretty messy and so make sure that you have plenty of napkins close by and expect some crumbs for sure.
The Lego Movie Birthday Party Games and Ideas
Once again you can take a few themes from the movie and make fun games out of them, here are some Lego Movie party game ideas:
Find the pants for "where are my pants" guy.
This can basically be a Scavenger hunt for pants guy's pants. Leave some clues - this could be a note pants guy has left which talks about the different places he went before he lost his pants. If you have enough guests, split them into two groups to make it a little more interesting. The first team to find them gets a prize.
Build a spaceship
Benny the old lego astronaut with the cracked helmet is always eager to build a spaceship so we can add this into the party by having a lego space ship building competition. To do this have a random asortment of Lego bricks and have each child build the best spaceship possible within a 10 minute period. Once the time is up decide who's is the best.
How much lego in the jar
To play this simple game just fill up a jar with lego bricks making sure to count the exact amount. Then have each child guess how much is in it and the closest to it without going over, wins.
Pin the head on the Lego man
Play the traditional game but with a Lego twist. Print off these free pin the head on the Lego minifigure templates courtesy of Halegraphx to play the game. Of course you could also play pin the age on the lego minifigure as seen in the pic above too.
