Last week, I provided the entertainment for a LEGO birthday party celebrating the birthday of 6 and 8 year old brothers. It was awesome!
Every LEGO birthday party needs a big display!
A big city layout featuring working trains is the focal point of my parties. I pack as much detail as possible into the display, and it can be customized to meet the needs of the host. My most popular display features a 2×3 block of modular buildings, a 2×3 construction site including a battle between Micro Managers and the heroes of The LEGO Movie. Kids love spotting all the things they have in their collections, and I hope the display inspires them to build more.
One of the things kids like most about my LEGO parties is the interactive build shown below. I show them how to build a diamond shaped pattern they mass produce. Once the sections are built, I work with them to create a huge, round tower. The kids love seeing how they can build rounded objects using basic square bricks. And as you can see, my parties work for boys and girls.
These were the towers the kids built. Right before they were reduced to rubble! Destroying the towers is part of the plan, and the kids absolutely love it!
I wish I could take credit for the awesome LEGO decorations, but these were all the work of the parents. The LEGO model decorations were the perfect compliment to this LEGO birthday party.
Throwing a LEGO birthday party is a lot of work, but I have a lot of fun doing it, and hope to continue doing them in the future. Most importantly, the kids love it, too!
