This is how a Lego party goes down at our house. Both Hallie and Hunter had helped on decor and treats the week before but when they got off the bus and saw it all put together there was a lot of excitement. Hunter exclaimed, “This is the best party ever.” I love that my six year old is as enthusiastic about parties as I am.
When friends arrived they each colored a Lego mini figure. Not surprising all but one chose to make it look like Emmet or Wild Style from the Lego Movie.
We had a photoshoot with our Emmet photo board for each kid.
We also had each kid build a rubber band lego car. This took much longer than I expected but they were the perfect ages for the activity. We raced them and tried different sized rubber bands to see what changes it had. The thinnest rubber band gave the most favorable results!
This boy was on cloud nine. We took his favorite toy and mixed that with his favorite people and he was beyond happy. His friend asked if we could keep everything so he could have it for his birthday party in a couple months. Flattery from a six year old is priceless!

Oh man, that looks like the best party ever (if you are a 6 year old boy especially). Well done with all the details. I love the racing cars idea especially.
Ok, I don't know what's going on. This is my third attempt to leave a comment so who knows if it's going to show up 3x! WOW! This is right up our alley over here. Loved the Emmett photo op the best! Fantastic party and photos Kara!
I love the yellow cups with faces and the Legos surrounding the cake and the legos built to read the children's name. So easy to replicate, no tools or craftiness required but a big impact.
Love it all. That does look like the BEST party ever.
THANK you about the info for Walgreens — doing Lego City so I need a poster of the police officer and robber – can you tell me when I am looking for an image what would be good for that size? Or can you tell me where you found it? THANK YOU! You are awesome! I love love love your party!
The photos have to be really large. Your best bet would be to take it with your own camera so you have the highest resolution. Good luck with the party.
How did you make the rubber band racing cars? Was it a kit for each kid that you made or bought? Thanks for all the info. So so helpful!!
I just found a tutorial online for how to make rubber band cars. I then bought the pieces from an online store so each boy could make one. Good luck!
