We’re participating in LEGO week with several of our blogging friends! This weekend our boys were invited to our neighbor’s birthday party and they gave him a LEGO set, so we thought it was only fitting that we created some LEGO-stamped gift wrap!
It is so simple and so easy, but the boys had so much fun! :) We used DUPLOs, since they are easier to pick up (and less messy), but you can use any LEGOs that you already have on hand.
Here’s what you’ll need: craft paper and/or a gift sack, LEGOs, and tempera paint!
1. Set out your paint and Duplos on a flat surface (I used the inside of a shoebox to keep it contained).
2. Lay out your craft paper and have your child “stamp” the Duplo in the paint and onto the paper.
Looks like messy fun!
Do the same thing for your gift bag.
Let both the craft paper and the gift bag dry completely. Check your bottle of paint to see how long it will take (tempera paint normally dries pretty quickly).
Once it is dry, wrap up your LEGO gift(s)! :)
