My husband loves Legos! We walk down every Lego aisle we see and he can’t wait till Stella is old enough to build things with him. Until then, he can have these legos with Stella’s face on them!
Which I think is absolutely better!! :D
This is a simple, fun little craft that’s perfect for Father’s Day. It’s meaningful, inexpensive and easy for Dad to keep on his desk or dresser! You could also make these for a child’s room to use instead of frames, they can be made as big as you want!
- Adhesive paper //
- Craft knife //
1. Legos don’t really come in just plain packs (annoyingly!) so you can either use ones you have, pick them out of a set or find these cheap lego knock offs. I just got them at the Target one stop section!
2. Build little shapes and size photos on your computer to fit the shapes.
3. Print them out onto full sticker paper. I tried other options, like copy paper with glue and Mod Podge and I did not like the results, but it might work for you! Try it out if you don’t want to buy the full sheet labels.
4. Trace your lego shape onto the corresponding picture. A craft knife gets closer than a pen or pencil will so I traced with that before cutting it out.
5. Cut out, remove backing and stick to your block shapes.
6. Use your craft knife to cut each row.
7. Cut between each block, removing each row as you go to make it easier.
8. I placed each puzzle in a little bag and printed the same picture out on the sticker paper again to attach to the bag to make it easier for Dad to assemble.
I think Nathanial will have a fun time putting these together and hopefully he can keep a few at work to see throughout the day! Does your Dad or husband love legos too?
