Things You Learn Hosting a Lego Party


December 14, 2009 by Marj Hatzell

For Starters, THIS is much harder than it looks, yo:

Interestingly enough, nine-year-old boys do NOT care what the cake looks like.  They are more concerned with, “OMG!  SUGAR!  FOOD COLORING!  YEAH!” and eat it anyway. And the only other comment was, “A LEGO CAKE!  COOL!”

Nine-year-old boys pretty much just eat non-stop. So if you are planning on making extra and having leftovers for later?  NO. NOT SO MUCH.

Three hours is a very long party, due to excessive sugar intake. See cake above.

Building Lego Racers and then RACING them is more fun than any party game. Ever.  Also?  The dining room table leaves make GREAT car ramps.

Downloading Lego videos via Yootoob was the BEST IDEA EVER (Thanks, WRH!).  Lego Numa Numa dance?  Not so much. They will dance to it.  And ask to do it again.  And again.  Oh, and AGAIN. And then while they are building their sets your sister will download more lego videos, because there’s Lego Harry Potter, and Lego Indy, and Lego Star Wars, and Lego Monty Python (though, we did not show that at the party. You know, because it would have been inappropriate?) and basically anything Lego ever.  Amen.

Lego parties yield more Lego building sets.  As in, twelve new Lego building sets. Because the fifteen thousand Legos we already have were not enough.  And when the party is over, the Boy will ask to go spend his gift cards and get (WAIT FOR IT) ANOTHER LEGO SET.  The good news?  Bionicles.  Not quite Lego.  The bad news?  Small parts.  Vacuum.  Crying hysterically.  Better news?  Bagless vacuum!  Can find stuff sucked up!

Twenty kids?  AM I F*CKING INSANE (don’t answer that)??????

  1. How cool is that? Awesome idea for a party and I think I am going to steal it if I am ever as crazy as you to host a party with 20 9-year-olds, lol. Cake looked great, btw.

    Oy, the Bionicles. I keep waiting for my boys to outgrow them. I may be waiting a looooooooong time.

    You have my sympathies!

    Oh, Bionicles, it is you I fear the most.
    Awesome party. Way to go. And I find it hard to believe the cake is harder than I think it would be because really? That does not look easy to me. Go you!

  4. She Started It says:

    Sounds like an amazing party. And YUM that cake looks great!

  5. GeekChick says:

    It was a cool party – and they were all really great 🙂 You are the coolest mom, ever!

    Sounds like an awesome party. My daughter loves legos. I love that she loves legos. When I used to babysit, I used to love to watch the kids that had legos. I’d always convince them that’s what they wanted to play with me, LOL.

  7. I agree that racing Lego cars is the best activity ever. I’ve done lots of Lego car racing parties and the kids are always SOOO good. We hardly ever have problems with the the kids and what’s more, the kids love it!
