Lego Party IceBreaker Games
Lego Jar Guessing Game
This is a great ice breaker game to play at the beginning of the party
while guests are arriving. Fill a glass or clear
plastic jar with lots of Lego pieces. As guests are arriving
ask them to guess how many Lego's they think are in the jar.
Write down their name and their guess on a piece of paper.
The guest who guesses the number closest to the actual number of Lego's
in the jar wins! You can present them with the jar of Lego's
as the prize or give them small toy or treat. Before the
party count the Lego pieces while you are putting them in the jar, write
down the number and keep it in a safe place.
Secret Lego Sticker
Before the party purchase Lego stickers - enough that each guest will
have at least 8 - 10 for themselves. When guests are
arriving for the birthday party give them a sheet of stickers. The
object of the game is to get rid of all their stickers by placing them
on other party guests without the guest knowing or getting caught.
If they are caught placing a sticker then they have to take all the
stickers off the party guest who caught them and try and place them on
other kids. Only one sticker at a time. The first
guest that gets rid of all their stickers wins!
Lego Party Games
Lego Relay Game
This is a fun relay game and a one of our favorite Lego party ideas that can be played indoors or outside.
The object is to be the first team to fill their bucket with Legos'
relay style. Set up the game by placing two buckets filled
with Lego's at the starting line (one for each team) and two empty
buckets at the opposite end of the playing field.
Divide party guests
into two teams and have them line up behind the first person on their
team. Give each team a large spoon and one at a time 1
person from each team scoops up Legos from their bucket and walks/runs
to their empty bucket and drops the Legos inside. Then they
run back and hand the spoon to the next person in line. The
first team to fill their bucket wins! If Lego's are dropped
along the way the player must pick up the dropped Lego's and go back to
the start of their teams line and try again.
Lego Tower Mania
Divide the party guests into two or more teams and give them each a
bucket or box with the same amount of Legos.
The teams must build a tower as high as they can without it
falling over in the set amount of time.
Set a time
limit - 5, 10 or 20 minutes - and have teams try to build the highest
Towers must stand by themselves with no help from the
Lego Connect Game
Players must use Lego’s to make a path from one side of the
playing field to the other.
Measure out a distance between the start and ending
point and make sure it is the same distance for each team.
Mark the spot with sidewalk chalk or an orange cone so players know
where to go. Divide birthday guests into teams and one at a
time relay style they must connect Legos from the start to the end
point. The Lego's have to connect.
Lego Spoon Race
Just like the egg and spoon race
but instead of racing with an egg a Lego is substituted. Divide
into teams and give each team a spoon and a Lego piece. On
go, one at a time, they must hold the Lego on the spoon and run down the
playing field, around an orange cone or marker and then back to their
team. They then hand off the spoon and the Lego to the next person
on their team. The winning team is the one who has all of
their players back behind the starting line first. To
make it more challenging have the teams add a Lego to the spoon each
Lego Bridge Party Game
This is a great team game for older children. Set up two tables
that are about 5 feet
apart. Teams must try and build a bridge from one table to the
other table across the 5 foot space. After each team has built
their bridge test them with weights to see which one is the strongest.
Lego Chop Chop Game
Players use only chopsticks to move Lego pieces from one bowl to another
bowl as fast as they can. Give each guest a pair of
chopsticks and place the same number and size Legos' in a paper bowl.
Give them another paper bowl to transfer the Lego's into. For
older kids and for more of a challenge have them play this game
blindfolded or make it a team game by having two players work together,
each one having one chopstick, to move the Legos.
Lego Swoosh Game
The object of this fun game is to transfer a pile of Legos from the
start to the end point using paper towel tubes. Divide
the players into teams and have them stand in a line from the start to
the ending point. Give each player a paper towel tube and
one at a time they must put a Lego into their tube, and then pass it to
the player next to them using only the tubes. The Lego's
continue down the line of kids with paper towel tubes until they are
deposited in the end point container. Set a time limit and
at the end count how many Lego's each team was able to get down the
line. The players don't have to wait until the first
Lego is down to the end point ... it's continuous. For
a bigger challenge or for a second round use large wrapping paper tubes
or pieces of PVC pipe.
