Johnny’s LEGO-themed sixth birthday party was so much fun! These crayon LEGO guys that we made using these silicone trays were a huge hit – I’ll go into the process of how we made them later on in this post.
LEGO Themed Birthday Party Play Stations
We set the party up with free play stations – LEGO DUPLO bricks (since I knew there would be at least two, and maybe four, babies in attendance. We have quite a collection now, thanks to some donated by my mom from her collection, Christmas and birthday gifts for the kids, and one very lucky yard sale find where we got a huge stack of bricks for $2!
A car mat (from IKEA), Our BluTrack car racing track, and racing cars:
Play dough station – I just used our cinnamon play dough, but more traditional LEGO colors would be fun. Check out these instructions on how to easily make several colors of play dough in one go.
I never would have predicted it, but the LEGO coloring pages were a HUGE hit – with everyone! All of the kids enjoyed decorating funky LEGO guys. Super easy activity, and the kids adored it!
Decorating cupcakes is a must-have birthday party activity in our family! I don’t remember what recipe I used for the cupcakes. I made the frosting using 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, a whole bunch of powdered sugar, and a little bit of milk. It turned out to be the best frosting ever!!!
Party Favors: How to Make LEGO Minifigure Crayons
The kids helped me make our LEGO themed party favors. We peeled dozens of crayons:
We broke the crayons up and stuck them in these oven-safe silicone molds. Then we put the molds in the oven on a cookie sheet at 150 degrees Fahrenheit until they were melted.
Once the crayons were melted, we pulled out the cookie sheet and stuck it in the freezer to set. They popped out of the molds easily once they were cooled. We didn’t use any particular color scheme. The guys that we made using our Crayola Glitter Crayons were my kids’ favorites.Check out the blue glitter guy, the green and blue glitter guy, and the red glitter guy at the top of this post.
I don’t know how obvious it is from the picture above, but the bricks don’t really look like LEGO bricks. Because of this, you may want to just buy the LEGO guy molds, and not the brick molds.
Want something a little more durable than crayons? Use these same molds to make DIY LEGO minifig magnets using hot glue!
What to Put in LEGO Party Themed Goody Bags
We packaged our guys, bricks, and a memory game using this lovely LEGO matching game printable from I sew, do you? to send home with our guests.
Johnny’s birthday parties are super important to him, and he loved this one! Now we just need to finish off our thank you cards…
How do you celebrate birthdays? We have a Harry Potter themed party in the works for Emma next month…
