When I started blogging about our Lego party I promised some free printables, and since I wrote about some of the games and activities we played on Tuesday I figured Lego bingo and my "pin the face on the Lego head game" were good places to start!
My Lego Bingo printable comes with 10 bingo cards and 18 character cards for you to cut out for use by the caller. I think most people are familiar with how to play Bingo but here is a brief overview of the game for those of you who aren't:
1) Each player selects a Bingo card. They will also need a way to mark their card - pens or, if you want to re-use the card, a token of some kind. If you have a laminator you can also make the cards more durable by laminating them and then using dry erase pens.
2) You will need someone to act as the caller (if it's a kid's party this will probably be the responsible adult). The caller needs to place all 18 character cards into a large envelope or a bag. They should not be able to see what card they are pulling out.
3) The caller pulls out one card at a time and shows it to the players. If the player has that character on their Bingo card they need to mark it off.
4) The winner is the first one to mark off all 9 characters on their playing card.
I have also put brief instructions for playing the game on the printable itself, so that you don't have to hunt down the relevant blog post when you get around to playing the game.
The second printable I've uploaded for you is my "pin the face on the Lego head" game. It is a variant of the classic "pin the tail on the donkey game". The PDF has two pages and you will need to print the first onto yellow card. The second page has the facial features on it and you will need to cut these out after printing. There are probably several ways of attaching these to the face, I just used a bit of Blu Tack which worked fine. You will also need a blindfold of some sort.
If you want to turn it into a competition you could give each child all 5 facial features and let them create the entire face, with the winner being the one who is most accurate (the head has faint guidelines printed on it). My preference is letting the kids work together on this so everyone gets one part to stick on. My boys think this game is hilarious because you can end up with some crazy looking faces!
Hope someone finds these useful! They aren't just for parties of course, they are a great way to entertain Lego loving kids on a rainy day.
Next Thursday's regular freebie Thursday spot is also Lego party themed and will have some printables that will help you with creating decor.
