It’s All Fun and Games at a LEGO Birthday Party

Even if the invitations to your child’s Best LEGO Birthday Party included a specific timeframe–  say, 11 AM to 1 PM–  your guests will probably arrive at different times and depart at different times.

playparty.net has a suggestion:  Offer a LEGO-theme craft or game.  Activities such as the following will amuse the kids during your party’s transition periods.

I Spy LEGO GuyEagle-eyed youngsters will enjoy playing “I Spy the LEGO Guy” by Delia Creates.  Print images of LEGO heads on glossy card stock and hide the cards around the party area.  Then set the kids loose.

LEGO Bingo KidsPlayers need to look closely to see the details that make each mini-fig unique.  Sure, it’s easy to distinguish a scientist from an artist, or a weightlifter from a surfer.  But how do you tell the difference between a pop star and a punk rocker, or a disco dude and a rapper?  These kids know…
