Lego Party Food and Snacks

Lego mini-pizza: Use homemade or store-bought pizza dough and cut the dough into rectangles. Spread with pizza sauce and grated cheese, then place six mini-pepperoni slices in two rows of three on each slice to create the Lego knobs. Bake as directed.

Lego serving bowls: Dress up the snack table with serving bowls for pretzels and potato chips built out of Lego baseplates and bricks. This is something the birthday boy or girl can help you with when you’re preparing the food for the party. If you have the time (and the Lego pieces), you can also use smaller baseplates with wheels to create mobile, individual snack containers for each child. Fill them with handfuls of pretzel sticks, salted almonds and other small snacks.

Lego jello: Make batches of Berry Blue, Strawberry, Pineapple and Lime jello, then cube them and mix them together to create a refreshing dessert that matches the Lego colors. You can also put down a plastic tablecloth and let the kids play with their food by trying to build with their jello blocks. This activity is lots of fun for kids, although it can definitely get a little messy!

Lego snack assortment: Serve an assortment of red, green and yellow snacks to continue the Lego color theme. Arrange sticks of green celery, yellow cheese crackers, and watermelon cut into rectangles or cubes.

Lego pop: If you can find a Lego ice brick tray (or order one on Amazon), fill it with water tinted with Lego colors using food dye. Then float a couple of cubes in glasses of clear soda pop, such as 7-Up or Crystal Pepsi.

Lego Minifigure Cookies: Finally, don’t forget to create Lego Minifigure cookies using Minifigure cookie cutters. Coloring the dough with different food coloring can give you different Mini-figures too!
