Part 3: Modern Lego Inspired Party – Games and Activities

Lego party part 3 activities and games

This week we shared (Part ONE) The Dessert Table and Candy Bar and (Part TWO) The Favors and Decor from Jeffrey’s Modern Lego Inspired Birthday Party.

I am excited to share Part THREE of Jeffrey’s Modern Lego Inspired Birthday Party – The Games and Activities!

The top priority at the Lego Party was to have fun and unique activities for the kids.  It would be expected to have a bunch of Legos for the kids to build with, but I had to think of something new, fresh and unexpected!

Game 1: Lego Race:
The kids had a BLAST with this game.
I found the clear tubing (as shown on the Lego garland on the dessert table) at Lowe’s Home Improvement and thought it would be the PERFECT vessel for a Lego race.

Each kid teamed up with their buddy and they got a cup of small Legos.  The goal was to get their cup of Legos to their partner as fast as possible through the clear tubing.  Then their partner had to catch the Legos in their cup and send them back through the tube to their partner.  The team to do this the fastest won!  (The prize – a little green envelope embellished with “winner” printable logo and enclosed with a dollar! (At this age, our kids LOVE getting dollar bills).  We did 3 rounds of 3 teams.  It was perfect!

Game 2: Lego Memory Game:
Jeffrey is a master at the “Memory/Matching game”, so I decided to create a “Lego Memoriy Game” for the children to play at the party.  I found these perfectly “lego board green” tins on clearance at Micheals and wiped them out 😉  On our table, I put down a large piece of green wrapping paper ($1 at Target after Christmas clearance) and then evenly spread the green tins to create the “matching game board”.  It looked like the classic green lego baseplate/building board, which made for really cool decor.

Under each “peg”/tin we stuck a printable party logo from our “printable memory game” set.  4 kids played at a time.  Each child would pick 2 “pegs” and see if the lego stickers matched.  If so, they took the pegs, and if not, it was the next child’s turn.  The player with the most pegs won!  The kids loved this game and got really competitive with eachother (and used their minds, too!)

The winners received a “Winner” envelope with cash money inside 😉 (They were already getting Legos and other goodies, so there wasn’t anything left but dollar bills!  $1 for each winner. Big time money.)

Game 3: Pin the 6 on the Lego Man:
I love to include classic party games that remind me of my childhood parties.  Pin the tail on the donkey – nope. Pin the “6” on the Lego Style Man, yes!
Each child got a sticker that had a 6 and their name on it.  They were blindfolded and had to try and get their 6 on the “6” on the Lego man’s chest.  An oldie but a goodie.  (Available in the shop!)
(I think the kids all cheated because they almost all got it right!)

Activity 1: Build Your Own Magnet:
In each child’s Lego Tote, they received a cello bag packaged with all of the items needed to build a Lego Magnet.  We packaged it up all cute with a printable party favor tag.

I had gotten a few cups of Legos at my local Lego Store (You can fill your own cup with any Legos you want from their Lego wall).  I made sure to get equal amounts of each of the styles of Legos and also included the mini green “baseplates/boards”.  I glued magnet strips to the backsides of the mini Lego base-plates and the kids could build anything they wanted on these bases and use them on their fridge when they got home!

Activity 2: Giant Lego Scene Coloring wall;
We created a printable graphic scene for the wall – a 120” by 36” tall poster that we had printed at a local printer (blue print paper) and attached to the wall.  The kids could color on the bricks or little Lego man inspired figures with the lego man shaped crayons.

Activity 3: Lego Table
Jeffrey has a Lego Table in his room so we brought that down for the party. I found the cutest step stools for $10 each at TJ Maxx – and it all fell into place because the tops of the stools had the same modern dot pattern as our printable collection and were black and red and white!  They were the perfect height for the kids to sit at around the table which had a huge bowl of legos for building any creation that they dreamed up.  This was a great “filler activity” table for the younger kids who lost interest in my “planned games”.

Activity 4: Lego Photobooth
Sign Guy printed our pattern onto a backdrop and we used it as a photobooth for the kids to show off their awesome shirts (from Made by Morgan) and Lego creations.

Each child received an adorable Lego Minifigure inspired screenprinted shirt (from Made by Morgan).  Morgan even made girlie versions where the minifigure had a hair bow!  They also got a printable sticker name tag at their place setting and we placed it on their backs.  The kids wore these at the party.

Jeffrey and his brother, Pierson, and I got to wear awesome Lego bracelets that are from Reware Style.   These are the most precious bracelets and the kids all loved them!  I have actually been wearing mine lately and love it.

  1. I adore this, especially since I’m planning my Son’s 5th birthday at the end of this month with the Lego theme 🙂 I would REALLY love to know where you got the design for your photobooth background, I couldn’t find it at the etsy store….

    1. Hi Meghan! Thanks for your interest! We do offer the photobooth background. Please email me at maureen@andersruff. and I can set you up a listing for your specific size needs. Thanks!

  2. Love the ideas! Have already checked out the clear tubing from our local lowes! You have saved me hours in party planning! Thanks for the great blog!

  3. How did you make the lego pin the tail man? I was going to try to draw it out on poster lard, but worried that it may not look as great.

  4. I don’t know if you will get this, but I hope so!! Wondering what else was in the kid totes? Also, what is the large circular type thing next to the magnets? Thanks in advance!!!!

    1. Hi Tina! We loved this party! We put the circular thing in there that was a tin of M&Ms (it was M&M shaped)…. just becuase it was a treat my son loved and the colors worked 😉 We also put in there the kids straw and fork (with a glued on lego), as well as the build your own magnet kit. That was it. Then the kids could take home their favors in the tote, too! So fun! Let us know if you need anything else!
