Lego Olympics

Josh had a birthday, and we celebrated in style!  He got to have a friend party this year and chose a Lego theme.  (I’d like to thank Pinterest for guilting me into thinking I have to go all out for parties now-a-days.)  I found some great ideas and went to work making a banner and treats and coming up with games and activities to keep 10-year-old boys entertained.


We did Lego-style Olympics (thus the medals up above).  We tested their speed by racing Lego vehicles that they each made.  They really liked that!


We tested their accuracy by playing Lego Toss.


We pushed them higher in a speed-building contest to see who could build the tallest tower.


We tested their endurance by having them pick up Legos with a straw.


We tested their creativity with Lego head drawings.


And just for fun, we did a plain ol’ guessing game.  How many Legos do you think are in this jar?


The answer: 109

I think the boys (and Emily) had a lot of fun.  It was a blast to see them creating and playing and having fun together.  It was good to see all those Legos being put to good use!!!

The hit of the party?  Well, I think it was those yellow chocolate-covered marshmallow Lego heads!  Go figure!?!

  1. Sounds like a fun party! I may just need to borrow all of these ideas for Jared's birthday party! Congrats on selling your house! When will you be able to move into your new house?
