Twister With a Twist: Birthday Party Game DIY
Twister’s always a party hit. It gets a big group laughing, and for the kids especially, it gets the chaos confined to the size of the mat. Since the majority of guests attending the Everything is Awesome: Lego City party were of grade school age, a party game was an important aspect of breaking up the two hours I would be hosting.
Take it from the horses mouth, if you don’t have anything planned, you are setting yourself up for sugar induced chaos! Twister was a great classic choice, but I wasn’t fully on board with the wide range of colors going on. That’s when I decided I would make my own Lego twister birthday party game DIY.
To make sure the Lego City party stayed cohesive and modern, I opted to only style with grey scale, silver, dark blue, light blue and yellow. So I thought if I was going to make my own Twister set, I might as well make it as Lego themed as I could. This birthday party game DIY took me under two hours and kept to a small budget, as I sourced everything from the dollar store. Perfect when planning a children’s birthday party.

Before we go any further, I do want to state this birthday party game DIY was a ONE time use. Because kids are destructive, especially on sugar, the materials I used could only sustain young party guests so long. So, if you would like this birthday party game DIY to last longer, I recommend spending a bit more money by purchasing a painters drop cloth and painting on the Lego blocks. But if you are looking for a cheap and effective children’s birthday party game DIY, read on!
