This week, I bring to you… LEGO® Fun Friday: The Sick Kids Version!
We, unfortunately, do not have a LEGO® building challenge to share this Friday, but we’re planning to be back with a new challenge next week. For the past 10 days, the boys have been passing around fevers with coughs and congestion, and I took Owen to the doctor for an ear infection yesterday. Jonathan just came down with a fever today, so it looks like we’re going to be continuing to spend a lot of time at home! Such is winter with small children…
While the boys were laying around this weekend and feeling better enough to want something to do, we decided to try this idea from Busy Kids = Happy Mom for making Lego capes from duct tape. They were so easy and fun to make!
To make one, fold over a piece of duct tape so that it is stuck to itself. Or, stick two different colors together for a reversible cape!
Then, trace a LEGO® cape onto the duct tape with a ballpoint pen. (If you don’t have a cape, you can find a pattern on Busy Kids = Happy Mom)
Cut out the cape. Make sure to trace and cut the slit as well. Punch two holes with a hole punch.
Remove the minifigure’s head, and put on the cape.
It was kind of fun making accessories for the Lego minifigures. Maybe it was because it’s the closest to a doll house I’ll ever get with my kids? (ha!) We made capes with blue, red, purple, and silver duct tape. My favorite was a reversible cape with red and silver, and the boys said they liked that best, too.
The capes were a big hit, and it was a great boost for a blah day of staying indoors!
