Oriental Trading Company you can purchase a bag of gold plastic
coins for only a few bucks. These are great for using as money
studs, just like in the game. Throughout the party, award
party guests in a variety of ways with different amounts of
coins (winning certain games might win you a few bonus coins
beyond the standard amount that each guest received just for
participating.) At the end of the party, you can offer different
ways for them to 'spend' their gold coins on goodie bag prizes.
Play Lego Charades! On separate pieces of paper, write down
different characters and objects from the Star Wars movies.
Provide the first player with a bucket of Legos and instruct
them to draw an item/character from the paper pieces you made
(having put them all in a hat to draw from.) They will then
have exactly sixty seconds to build something with Legos so
that everyone will guess what item/character they drew. You
can also adapt Pictionary rules to this where the person drawing
the item/character builds for his team only. If his team doesn't
guess correctly after one minute, the opposing team is allowed
to make one guess to earn the point. Teams then alternate
for turns drawing new items/characters with different teammates
building each time.
Visit your local library to check out as many books on Legos
and Star Wars as you can (remember, most libraries allow you
to reserve books, even from other branches.) When propped
up, they make for great centerpieces or table top decorations!
best of all
Get your hands on some filing boxes (or any boxes that you
might have, though filing boxes might be easier to find that
are of a uniform size
uniform sizes work best for the
overall look of this one.) Spray paint some of the boxes solid
black and the others solid grey. With a white marker (found
at craft stores) draw circles on tops of the black boxes similar
to those on top of Lego pieces. Use a black marker for the
tops of the grey boxes. In this way you'll be able to make
large Lego pieces! These will look absolutely FANTASTIC at
your party stacked in different places or placed at the front
door for your guests to walk past!
