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.
