How to Make a Lego Pinata

My sister helped me make a Lego brick pinata for William's 6th birthday party.  We made it using a very large cereal box, gorilla tape, plastic cups, tissue paper, and hot glue.  Here's how we did it:

Fill box with candy.


Cut holes in the top so that you can later hang the pinata.


Reinforce the top with lots of Gorilla tape.


Cover with tissue paper.


Cut the bottoms off of plastic cups, cover in tissue paper, hot glue onto box.


The Finished Lego Pinata!

Tie a rope or string through the top, hang it up, and let the children have fun breaking it open! When we made this pinata we cut holes in the sides of the cardboard box to make sure that it would be weak enough to be broken open by the children.  In the end, however, that wasn't necessary.  Eventually the bottom of the pinata opened up because the weight of the candy became too much.  It lasted the perfect amount of time, though.  Each of the 14 children each had two turns to hit the pinata before the bottom dropped out.

What a fun, fun party! I'm impressed with your ability to put on such a great show, in spite of your illness. Go, you!

Thanks! It was lots of fun. It absolutely wiped me out, but I'm glad I could do it. And I'm so thankful that I had lots of help from family and friends. I couldn't have done the party without them!

That's wonderful!  Happy birthday to your son!  I hope he had a great birthday, and I hope the Lego pinata was fun for everyone.

I'm throwing a lego party for my sons's 2nd birthday in March. What are some lego themed food and games/activities did you do for your sons's party? Do you think a lego party is appropriate for a 2 yr old? He loves to attempt to build with legos!
