Lego Birthday Party Favor Ideas

I can't resist a cute theme for my kids' birthdays. Planning a themed party makes me giddy with happiness! I know, I'm a weirdo. This year, I went with a Lego themed birthday for my son. There are tons of cute Lego party ideas out there!


LEGO PARTY INVITATION:

I spent so much time trying to design my own Lego invitation, only to find this adorable invitation that is way cuter than anything I could make. The best part? You can download it free at make-your-own-invitations.com.



LEGO PARTY FAVOR GIFT BAGS:

For the Lego brick party favor bags, I bought a pack of 10 red/blue gift bags at Target for $3.99. I only needed six so I used the extra bags and my circle cutter to cut out the circles. Then I used pop-up foam squares to make the circles stick out. It took some time, but I loved how they turned out.



LEGO CRAYONS:

To make Lego crayons, you'll need a silicone mold. I bought a Lego brick mold on Amazon, but afterwards I realized you can find it cheaper on ebay. There is also a Lego minifigure mold. First, my older son and I took the wrappers off our old crayons. Then we broke them into pieces. I read that it's better to not mix too many colors, so I put clumps of similar colors next to each other.



After the crayons were in place, I put the mold on a baking sheet and put it in the oven on 250°F for about 10-15 minutes until the crayons were all melted. After the crayons cooled, they were super easy to remove from the mold. This project wasn't too bad except for removing the paper off the crayons. It takes longer than you think it will, and you'll end up with little pieces of crayon all over the place. But they are so cute!



LEGO PLAYDOUGH:

Making Lego playdough was so easy. I just took playdough, put it in the silicone mold, and voilĂ !



I put the Lego crayons and playdough in snack-sized bags and put a label on it using this free Lego font.



LEGO TREATS:

I went the easy route and put non-Lego candy in everyone's favor bag. Here are some cuter options: buy Lego brick candy, make Lego chocolates, or make gummy Legos.



LEGO TOYS:

I found little Lego sets that were on clearance at Target and put one in each bag. Another option is to give each kid a Lego minifigure. They are $2.99 on Lego's website or you can buy them on ebay. I've also seen them at Target. I got my husband the computer programmer minifigure because he's a programmer and it looks just like him!


What better place for a Lego birthday than Legoland? Spoiled kid. Check out the natural LEGO pop cakes I made for his birthday here.

  4. These lego items are so cool! I was sort of a tomboy when I was a kid and I LOVED legos so having this type of party favor would have been right up my ally! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!

  14. Love these ideas! Both of my kids were impressed, and S said, "I wish I were one of her childs." Then I asked N if he wanted to do something like this for his next party, and he said, "With pleasure!" I like the mini figure you got for Adam -- how perfect! The bags and crayons are my favorites.
