Host a Lego Party

[ 6 ] March 23, 2009 |

Our friends Jason and Ilira of Rag and Bone Bindery recently hosted a lego party. What a cool twist to our usual family pot-luck dinners. The goal: Use every lego to build something or many things. Guests contributed appetizers, drinks and dessert. Our hosts provided the main course and legos, lots of legos. There were eight adults and seven kids. The party was supposed to end at eight o’clock but we all left closer to eleven—kids and adults had a blast building. Although we came close to using every lego we did leave lots of itty bitty ones.

Thanks for a lovely evening and a fabulous party idea. I invite the Kidoinfo community to start hosting their own lego parties.

    You can stock up on your favorite lego color at sites like http://www.bricklink.com. The site links to many sites that sell lego bricks, people and accessories. For e.g. I searched Rhode Island and found this site: http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=dearlydeparted

    You can buy all pink if you want! You can also find cool accessories like windows, doors and roof parts.
