Theming Thursday: Lego Party!


Welcome to a new Shooting Stars Magazine feature! I know, the picture isn't all that great but it's the most basic design I could do at the moment. If you want to do your own Theming Thursday post, feel free to leave your link in the comments and I'll add it to this post and the next Theming Thursday post so people can easily find it.

Basically, you can post about whatever you want as long as it has a THEME. Maybe you want to share books with a certain theme, songs with a certain theme, or even parties with a certain theme! Most of my posts will probably be about parties since I've become obsessed with planning and throwing parties with various themes these last couple years. Sometimes I'll share parties I've actually thrown, but other times I'm going to pick a random party theme and then share ideas I come up with or things I've found online that could help you throw said party. If you want ideas about a certain party theme (maybe one you are planning to throw), let me know!

Today I have ideas for a Lego-themed party in honor of my review for The Lego Movie earlier in the week!
 
Lego Party Ideas!


B-Inspired Mama has a fun post about a Lego party she hosted, but she includes a lot of free printables at the bottom of the post that you can edit and print for your own personal use!


The above photo is from her party post to show you one of her games - Pin the Party Hat on the Lego Man. You can print the hat and the lego man (with him just saying Happy Birthday without a name) on her website. Just go here.

This post on Squidoo is basically what I'm doing here, just even better because there are so many Lego ideas. There are lots of free printables too, so definitely check out the entire page. However, I wanted to show you a couple items you can find on the site.


You can get a free Lego party invitation that you download, print, and fill in with your details!

You can also print out these Color Your Own Lego figures. Some parties have the guests color the Legos to look like themselves, but you can do whatever you like! It would make a fun activity, game, and/or decoration for the party!


The above photo shows you what you can find in the FREE Lego party pack from Peonies and Poppyseeds. It includes straw flags, cupcake wrappers, and more. Just download and have it printed out!


If you want another fun game to do at your Lego party, head over to A Typical English Home for free printables to do Lego bingo!

Babyology shared a fun Lego themed party with lots of food and game ideas you can check out. I just wanted to share one of the simple, cute food ideas they included!


They put Lego-colored jello in cups, putting three cups in a line like an individual lego block!

And finally, another fun way to display food at your Lego party. If you want to serve up some candy, think about creating bowls OUT OF Legos!


This party idea was used by Bliss Bloom Blog. You can visit the Lego party post for this and more ideas!

That's it for the first Theming Thursday post! Again, if you want to join in or want ideas for a certain themed party, please let me know. I'd be happy to find what I can!

How cute! I might be going to the Lego movie with my niece and nephew tomorrow; maybe I can print out a coloring sheet for them.

Erika Sorocco said...

Stop! I'm so in love with this...I can't. My nephew is a LEGO freak - I'm buying him the Lego Movie Video Game tomorrow.

What a fun theme!

Eileen said...

Aww this is such a cute theme! I especially love the lego bowls because that's such a cute way to hold your snacks and definitely colorful with all those legos! :D Thanks for sharing! <33

Andrea @The Bookish Babes said...

What a great post! I actually had a Lego party for my son's last birthday. I got my ideas from Pinterest. I love the ideas you've posted, too. I'm going to do a Lego Friends party for my daughter in April.
Thanks for sharing!

Aylee said...

Aww, I love that you love throwing themed parties! You sound like such a great hostess... I'm a little jealous! A Lego-themed party - pretty much the BEST thing ever!!!!

I may just have to borrow my friends' kids and force them to attend a party because this is so cute! Awesome ideas.

Medeia Sharif said...

I love these. I miss my childhood Legos. What a great invention.

How wonderful and perfect for boys. There seems to be loads of such things out there for girls but I think the market is lacking for boys unless they happen to be into fire engines or dinosaurs.

Cute Ideas, I just saw pictures on facebook of a friends lego party for her son

Giselle said...

Omg you just totally gave me my kid' snext bday theme. I like to go for things that aren't super cliché like Super Mario Bros and Tricks and things you see at every bday party - plus the Lego movie will be on DVD by then we could all watch it! :D

Tanja - Tanychy said...

Wow I never though about using my old legos this way. So amazing! I love this brand and I'm currently teaching my little niece colors with them :) Great post :)

The Bookish Manicurist said...

I love the idea of a Lego-themed party, and all of these are awesome, particularly the Lego lolly bowls!

Celine J. said...

Awww, this is super cute! All these ideas are a total must for Lego fans :D

Angela's Anxious Life said...

I am such a geek. I would totally have a lego party for myself!

Just a Hunch Book Blog said...

I should have hired you to do Elodie's birthday party! Maybe next year...

Rachel said...

What a fun Meme idea! I love this Lego party with the primary colors,and the lego candy bowls the best. :)

Zoe N. said...

This seems so entertaining, yet so simplistic and fun! Definitely going to have to try this out at one point! You're so creative Lauren, and you're always coming up with such original ideas! <3 Thanks for sharing, and, as always, FANTASTIC post!

Love the idea, we had a few Lego parties when my son was young. He loved them :)

Christy @ Love of Books said...

How cute! I'm going to show this to my friend and cousin. My cousin has 3 young boys who LOVE Legos.

A Voracious Reader said...

Legos are awesome except when you step on them. And when you pay for them. o.O Why are they so expensive?!

Lauren D. said...

Oh my gosh, this looks like so much fun! I would totally do something like this if I had a kid's birthday party to throw. I was so into legos as a kid!

Montana @ The Book Belles said...

This party idea is so cute! I especially love the jello cups that look like a lego. That's such a creative idea. Great post :)

Just a Hunch Book Blog said...

This is so cute! I'm thinking it might be an awesome idea for one of my library programs in the future... thanks for the idea!

L-Diggitty said...

Such a great idea! Make sure to wear shoes, though... stepping on Legos barefoot is not for the faint of heart!!!! :P
