It’s time for Lego Fun Friday!
If you’re new to Frugal Fun for Boys, Lego Fun Friday is a twice-a-month Lego building challenge. Your kids can participate by linking up a blog post on this page, or you can share photos of their creations on the Frugal Fun for Boys Facebook page. This week’s building challenge was to build a Christmas ornament out of Legos. We have a few fun ideas to share with you!
Aidan made this candy cane:
And he also designed this ornament with Baby Jesus in the manger. For the baby, he used an Anakin Skywalker head (I know, Anakin being Baby Jesus!) and a 1×1 brick. It turned out really adorable!
We also made ornaments out of clear plastic ball ornaments. I got the ornaments at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents each (99 cents and 50% off) and then we filled them with red, green, and white bricks from our collection. With the size balls we bought, 2 x 1 bricks are the best. 3 x 1 will work. But 4 x 1 are very difficult to get back out if you need to get them back out!
Who knew Legos in an ornament could look so pretty on the tree?
We saw some neat fill-able plastic ball ornaments at the Legoland Discovery Center for $3 each in the shop, and they have a 4 dot base for attaching bricks in the center. They would be fun for putting a minifigure inside, or maybe a small Christmas tree. Lots of possibilities! On Amazon, the same ornaments are $9.49, so I would recommend getting them at Legoland if you live close to one!
Now it’s your turn! Link up a Lego post (can be about the building challenge, or about any Lego activity for kids) or share photos of your kids’ Lego creations on the Frugal Fun for Boys Facebook page. We can’t wait to see what your kids built!
There will not be a Lego Fun Friday in two weeks – we’ll take that week off for the Christmas holiday, but we’ll be back with a new challenge in January!
