These are LEGO Games.
year-olds love to have fun with Lego Games. They love to laugh and to
learn and don’t require much to do so, so keep it simple when deciding
on games and activities for the party.
Though baby’s guest list
will most likely include a wide range of ages, make sure to include some
games especially for your one year old. Along with the special section
for first birthday party games, here are some games and activities with
LEGO themes for one year-olds.
LEGO DUMP AND FILL
year-olds love to put things in and dump things out. Spread a blanket
out in the center of the room and position participants around in a
circle. Give each a bright colored sack or basket then bring in a mound
of large LEGO bricks.
You can even wheel the LEGO in using a
little red wagon if you want. Dump the LEGO in the middle of the circle
and let the babies make a mad dash to get them.
Walk, crawl, or
scoot, it doesn’t matter how they get to the pile. Some may even
require a little help from mom or dad. Some may fill their sack or
basket, others may just play with the blocks while others may opt to
munch on them.
The object of the game is to…well, there is no
object of this game except to have fun watching what each baby does.
Have fun and remember…there will be plenty of time for more complicated
Lego games in the years to come so enjoy the simple life while you can!
PEEK-A-BOO LEGO STYLE
a house, tower or any large object. Spread a blanket out and position
the babies in a semi-circle around you. Hide your face with the LEGO
object you built and say “gone, gone…”. Then move the object and say
“peek-a-boo”. Repeat again and again and listen to the squeals of
laughter. This activity may sound boring to you, but your one year-old
will love it.
Using a blanket for
padding, dump a pile of LEGO at one end of the blanket and position the
babies at the other end. Play one of baby’s favorite songs (you can
even use a musical toy). Watch the babies as they go for the goal…or
not. Some may walk or crawl straight to the pile while others may sit
and observe. Others may get a bit side-tracked. It is fun to watch
what each one does and remember, as with all the games, everyone’s a
HOW HIGH CAN WE GO?
each child sit in a circle around a pile of LEGO . Let them take turns
adding a brick to see how high they can build the tower. Since the
object of this game is to have fun, the child whose block tumbles the
tower gets to put down the first brick to start another tower. Stand or
fall, everyone is a winner!
THE FARMER IN THE DELL
the party, construct farm animals out of LEGO bricks. The LEGO farm
set is especially designed to make animals, but they can be made from
Stand the children in a circle and lay the farm animals in
the middle. Help them sing the song “Farmer in the Dell” while they hold
hands and walk slowly around in a circle.
When the song says to
pick an animal, a cow for instance, let the children point to the cow in
the center of the circle. Hold the correct animal up and clap. Take
turns naming the different animals in the song and letting the children
guess which animal. This is a great one for first birthday parties.
LEGO BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN
a bridge out of LEGO , leaving a tunnel large enough for children to
crawl through. Have the children form a line and sing “London Bridge is
Falling Down” while taking turns crawling under the bridge.
SEE AND SAY
Make familiar animals and other objects, like a car and a house, and hold each one up for the children to guess what it is.
each child five LEGOS . The players go from player to player,
exchanging LEGO with each other. They can give away as many or few as
they want, but they cannot refuse LEGO from other players. After
approximately 2 minutes the leader calls “Stop!”
The leader then calls out a “lucky number” between one and twenty. Whoever has that number of LEGOS wins.
