I've shown you Trevor's Lego cake and Lego pinata- time for games! Of the six games we did, three of them were based upon Lego minifigs. For the first, I printed out a big stack of blank minifigs (I used the image here). As the guests arrived, we asked them to color their own minifig and then display it. Some of us, including me, based our minifig on what we were wearing that day...
... while others created fictional characters.
There was a lot of creativity. My dad made a Birthday Trevor minifig (labeled Grandpa Dave of Livermore because both of Trevor's grandpas are named Dave). Jonna drew what she thought she would have drawn at age 6. Timothy blew us away with the Homer Simpson minifig. Joe's minifig is awesome because there was nobody at the party named Joe.
We're suspicious that "Joe" might be Uncle Brian, who is incredibly creative. Check out his minifig. It's Trevor, wearing Lightning McQueen jammies and holding his giraffe stuffed animal.
Trevor thought this was so much fun that he made four. Basically, every time another family or set of guests arrived, Trevor made another minifig to show them what to do.
We displayed them all on the door.
The second game was Minifig Memory. I had made a display of 28 of Trevor's minifigs, which sat out as a decoration during the first half of the party. Then I announced that it wasn't merely decoration- it was a memory game. I covered the minifigs and the guests worked in teams to try to remember as many of the minifigs as they could. Challenging!
The third minifig game was "Pin the Accessory on the Minifig." We started out with this blank minifig.
After each person pinned their feature and got to see where it ended up, Trevor would rush over and fix it so that the minifig was 'correct.' When the game was over, our minifig looked like this.
Tomorrow I'll share the other three Lego games from the party!
