No Lego Party is complete without some delicious Lego Cupcakes, Lego Party Games, and cute Lego party favors. There are tons of great Lego Party Ideas for the little lego fan in your family.
I had so much fun with all the Lego Birthday Party ideas I had. I needed it to be easy and budget friendly and that’s just what this party is. All you need are a few homemade goodies to really make this party special.
A couple of weeks ago my little man celebrated his 4th birthday. He was very adamant that he wanted a lego party, even though party themes like this are not my favorite type of party I happily planned a fun lego party for him. I decided to keep this birthday party on a budget, so I didn’t go overboard on birthday party supplies, birthday party games, party invitations, or party decorations.
I love coming up with kids birthday ideas for my little ones. They are only small once, but that doesn’t mean the parties need to break the bank. There are tons of great kids party ideas around and I know there are a bazillion lego party ideas, but these are my ideas for a budget friendly, yet totally amazing kid’s lego birthday party.
I have a friend who is very handy with photoshop and so she makes my party invitations (and I make her birthday cakes). This invite was pretty simple so I thought I would share with y’all. She used a flat lego board and used legos to create the initial. She took a picture with her digital camera and then used photo editing software and a free lego font to add the party details. Such a creative idea! (Note: some of it looks a bit off because I edited out our personal info.)
Since we weren’t having our party at the house (and because my son loves cupcakes), we opted not to have a huge lego cake, but lego cupcakes! Aren’t these super cute? They were so simple. I used my favorite amazing white cake recipe plus almond buttercream frosting and then topped them off with edible lego candies! Technically, the candies were supposed to be able to be stacked and used to build things, but I couldn’t get them to work so I just shoved them in the frosting.
Lego Party Favors
Instead of buying the premade cheap looking party bag favors, I made these cute lego party favor bags. All I used was a small gift bag with a handle and 2 inch circles cut in the same color cardstock. I used my silhouette, but scissors or a 2 inch punch would work too. Then just use double stick tape or scrapbook adhesive to stick the circles on the bag. So cute and super easy!
I did buy lego hats because the kids begged for them at the store. They added some nice color to the table! Check out Amazon for a ton of Lego Party Supplies…they have a huge selection.
Lego Party Games
Of course we had to have some Lego Party Games! For a fun and easy game that was totally free (because we have about a bazillion legos) was this hurricane that I filled with hundreds of legos, stuck a note in it asking everyone to guess how many were in the vase. Cute centerpiece, fun game, and colorful too! The winner got some extra edible lego candies (not the legos).
The kids loved these cute lego head marshmallow pops! Check out how to make them HERE. The kids had a blast helping me make them and picking out what faces to add to the pops. I could see these being a fun craft for the party, but I just had my kids help while I did other party planning.
Lego Party Table Ideas
This cute lego party table idea was simple and easy to assemble. It works at home or we set it up at the restaurant so the kids could enjoy it too.
The super duper happy birthday boy! He loved his Lego themed party. He still talks about it and can’t wait to have another Lego party. Sometimes simple and easy are all you need.

Hi – can you share which brand/type of lego candies you purchased? The colors are brighter than the candies I’ve seen. Thanks!

Hi Maureen, I just bought them at our local candy store in the bulk bins. They look like the same as all the other lego candies I’ve seen around so it might just be the lighting in my house or something making them look different.
such cute ideas!
