Building Birthday Fun with LEGO®

Tips for hosting your child’s next birthday party extravaganza


The thought of being responsible for a group of kids hopped up on frosting, sugar, and fizzy drinks is enough to make most adults cringe, especially during the hot summer months. Throwing a successful party requires a secure area with lots of activities to wear off high levels of energy that accompany birthday celebrations.

“Planning your child’s birthday party can be a piece of cake. It’s all about finding the most cost effective, safe and stress-free way to make a great day for your little one,” says Noel Straatsma, Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre provides plenty of attractions all under one roof, providing the perfect LEGO® playground for birthday girls and boys.

Noel suggests a few things to keep in mind for this year’s birthday party extravaganza:

·         Keep it short and sweet – Technically you are the babysitter for the afternoon, keep that in mind. A two to three hour maximum gives plenty of time for cake, food and fun, before the kids come down off of their sugar highs and burn out.

·         Activities galore – Ensure you have provided enough physical activity to burn off all that excitement. Each child will be inhaling the key birthday food groups of sugar and sweets and will need a way to release all that energy. A great way to keep them busy is to build with LEGO®! The kids stay busy and have fun while the parents get a little break to catch their breath.

·         Party favors – Some party packages can include loot bags, leaving each child leaving with a smile and more entertainment for which the parents will appreciate.

·         Invite the parents – To take some of the pressure off, invite some of the parents to attend as well. Certain venues offer packages with special adult rates. Enjoy a little adult time amongst the chaos while gaining a helping hand.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre offers LEGO®-themed birthdays brought to you by your own personal host. Winter, summer, spring or fall, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre provides indoor entertainment for kid’s enjoyment from ages 3-10. Packages offer admission into the attraction, a party room for your specified time and hours of LEGO® fun.

I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat!
