So.. Your child wants a Lego Birthday party and you need some food. Here are a few of the ideas that I used. I hope they will be useful.
These brownies were made from a box mix (nothing too fancy), topped with chocolate frosting and M & M’s upside down to form the studs of the Legos. My son and I made different sizes so we could have 2 x 3 brownie bricks and 1 x 3 bricks.
These bowls full of Lego studs were colored Skittles. We bought a big bag from Sam’s club and my son had fun sorting them into the bowls by color. The last bowl was some Rainbow Twizzlers cut into half to add to the color.
My son wanted a Nintendo theme incorporated, as he is always building Nintendo characters out of Legos. This is a Zelda Windwaker throwback where each of the jellies in the cups were Chu Jellies. (Plus the color scheme looked great with the Legos.)
These were a huge hit. I bought Lego molds from the Lego store (you can also get them online at Amazon and Ebay) and followed a great tutorial from Grant Thompson. His youtube tutorial is below. I used Jolly Rancher Jello to give it a little extra flavor. The candy apple was my favorite!
The easiest food item of all. Slices of cheese on top of rectangular club crackers. The result- small blocks.
This one was interesting and fun to create. My son has food allergies so I had to substitute ¼ cup apple sauce for each egg. The result was that it fell apart pretty easy. However, if you follow the Betty Crocker recipe for the cake- you should have better luck. The Youtube link for their tutorial video is below.
Napkin & Silverware Containers
My son built these holders out of Legos. I sanitized them and put 3 different colors to blend in with everything else.
Marshmallow Lego Heads
One of my best friends actually made these for his party using a recipe from brendid.com. She used a styrofoam brick painted red and stuck in each of the Lego heads. It was a great centerpiece for the table. She also put some in a mason jar full of Skittles.
I won’t lie, everything took me quite awhile to put all of this together, but it was a fun and a labor of love. My son and his friends loved the results. If you use any of these ideas, add a comment below. I would love to hear how your party turned out.
