14 of the best LEGO-themed party ideas and supplies…

1. Lego party invitations, £6.06 (6-pack)

Kick the LEGO theme off way before the party itself with these coloured brick invites. They’re made from good quality card, come with envelopes and can be personalised with all the party info – all you need to do is add the name of the guests. There’s free standard delivery for addresses in the UK and if you order by 1pm, it’s same day dispatch.

Available from: Putty Print

2. Lego Silicone Moulds, £2.80

If you’re planning to create a homemade cake for your child’s LEGO-themed party, these silicone ice cube moulds are easy to use for cake toppers. This set currently comes with a free 1m LEGO ribbon.

Available from: Amazon

To make the toppers, melt white chocolate mixed with some drops of food colouring, pour into the moulds and leave to set. The soft moulds make it simple to push out the  different coloured minifigures to decorate your cupcakes.

You can also use the moulds to make jelly bricks. The jelly pops out really easily and makes a tempting party dessert.

3. LEGO Balloon Bouquet, £19.95

Make sure the guests are in NO doubt where the party’s at with this colourful balloon bouquet complete with LEGO minifigure. You can fill with helium or do it yourself with your own breath.

Available from: Tether and Float

4. Lego Ninja Pinata, £14.99

If your child LOVED the LEGO movie, or has a real soft spot for the LEGO Ninjago characters in particular, they’ll love these pinatas, which come in a choice of white, black, red or green.

Note the pinata comes empty so you’ll need to fill it with your own choice of sweet treats, and a stick isn’t provided – though hopefully you’ll have something suitable to use at home.

(Do make sure there’s an adult around when the kids are playing this game!)

Available from: eBay

5. Deluxe Block Party Pack, £22.49 (16-piece) or Value Party Pack, £10.99 (8-piece)

9. LEGO Markers Pack (9-piece), £12.99

They’re fine line markers, approximately 1.5mm with the classic LEGO design.

10. Building Block Pull-string Pinata, £9.49

If you like the idea of a pinata, but there will be younger children so you’re not too keen on one you bash, why not get a pull-string pinata instead?

Each child takes it in turns to pull a string, and one magic thread opens it up. Once again, the pinata is empty, so you’ll need to fill it with goodies.

Available from: Party Decorations UK

11. Pre-filled Block Party Bags, £1 each (+35p packaging, from UK)

If you’ve really run out of time – or just don’t fancy putting the party bags together yourself – why not go for a pre-made option like these? Reasonably priced, each bag includes:

– 12 piece bricks jigsaw puzzle OR bricks sticker sheets
– Bricks maze puzzle
– Touchable bubbles
– Haribo sweets

13. LEGO keychains, various (£4.99 each)

We know kids don’t have keys – but we also know lots of them LOVE putting keyrings on their school book bags.

The LEGO store has a huge selection, from characters to bricks, generally at £4.99 apart from  a brick-style one that comes with a flashlight.

Available from: LEGO store
