On Tuesday you saw the awesome Art of the Brick Date Night post (and if you didn’t, you should totally check it out). It is possible, though, that you can’t go. This could be because the exhibit isn’t going to be at a city near you. It could also simply be that you don’t have a sitter readily available. Fear not! Just because you can’t visit the exhibit doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the fun. Here are five awesome Lego date night ideas that you can enjoy right at home!

Get in on the fun even if you can't visit the Art of the Brick exhibit. Here are five awesome Lego date night ideas that you can enjoy right at home!

Create Lego Art

You can keep with the Art of the Brick theme and try to create your own art. Find a picture of a famous work of art online. Have a decent selection of Legos available for this. Next, you and your husband try to recreate the work of art. Guaranteed that even if your works of art totally such, you will still have a great time with a lot of laughs. If that seems too ambitious for you, here are a couple of other options for creating Lego art are:

  • Create your own abstract art (preferably based on some random item in the room). Once you’ve finished, take turns guessing what the “inspiration” for the piece was. Feel free to make this as hard for your husband as you’d like. It can be a lot more laughs that way.
  • Create castles, houses, or some other structure. You can do this as a team or individually. Once you’ve created your structures, test their durability by trying different methods of destruction on them. If you’ve built your structures separately, make it a competition by seeing who’s lasts the longest.

Movie Night

Have a movie night with your husband and watch The Lego Movie. Complete the night with Lego themed treats like these:

If you really want to go all out, put pink and blue streaks in your hair and give hubs an orange construction vest like Emmet wears.

Play a Lego Game

Have you played any of the Lego board games yet? Some of them are pretty awesome. My absolute favorite is Creationary because of the creativity involved but there are others that are fun, too. Here are a few awesome ones to get you started:

Lego Pirate Code: This is a logic game in which you try to guess your opponents’ codes before they guess yours.

Lego Magikus: This one is a very simple game with the end goal to cast your magic spell first.

Lego Kingdoms Chess Set: If you want to keep it classic, you can’t go wrong with Lego chess. This set is a little pricey but amazingly cool.

Catapults

This is a fun activity is you want to test your creative genius as well as add some friendly competition. Each of you builds a catapult using only Legos and rubber bands. Next, set your creations side by side and launch a mini figure. The person whose mini figure goes the furthest is the winner. After the competition, try building a super-catapult together. See if you can launch a mini figure across the living room as a team.

Assemble a Kit

This is actually a team-building exercise sometimes used in couple’s therapy. Find a Lego kit to put together as a team. If you’re not super Lego builders, it is perfectly okay to start with a Duplo kit. Try to choose one that is difficult enough to warrant reading the instructions to build it. Outside of that, anything goes.

Now you have no excuse not to have an awesome Lego date night with your husband. The best part is that if you invest in a couple of these items now, you can use them for multiple date nights. If you have kids at home, you likely already own a ton of Legos. That makes these some cheap and super cheap and easy date night idea! Find other date night ideas on our Marriage page!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
  • You can totally do some of them with Duplo! It might make it an even more challenging and fun competitive date!

  • Hil D

    This is so creative and adorable. Perfect ideas for a date night!! My husband would love it but all we have is duplo lol!

  • Thank you for stopping by, Jessi! Hopefully you can start enjoying that plethora of Legos lying around now 🙂

  • It is a ton of fun! Any classic brick set is a good starter set because of the variety included. This one ( http://amzn.to/1PwS1qU ) is on sale at Amazon right now for less than $15.

  • The snacks are always a huge hit with kiddos. And you totally should get one of the games. We own about 6 of them and they are all a lot of fun.

  • Thank you, Jessica! You’re so right, it is a great way to get in touch with your inner child!

  • Omgosh, that’s awesome! That is definitely on my bucket list!

  • Thank you! Yes, I’m all about yummy treats for pretty much any occasion (or non-occasion). Lol 🙂

    The catapult one sounds like so much fun! Do you have any recommendations for a starter lego set for those of us who don’t have kids yet?

  • Jessi @ LifeAbundant-Blog.com

    What a cute idea! We love Legos and have our fair share in our house. Thanks for sharing!

  • My boyfriend would love these ideas! We had Art of the Brick come to Philly but we didn’t go unfortunately, I wish we had went! Thanks for the ideas since we missed it, I still need to see Lego Movie!

    • Sorry you missed the exhibit. It is absolutely worth it if you ever do get the chance again to go. You guys should totally still have a Lego date night! I’m sure you’d have a blast with it. 🙂
