Building Instructions for LEGO® Guinea Pigs!  This project was inspired by our two pet guinea pigs.  Guinea pigs make great pets for kids, but these LEGO® guinea pigs are even better!  They won’t make a mess, and they don’t need food or water – ha!

Build a simple cage complete with a food dish and a water bottle.

The instructions below are for building the brown and tan guinea pig, but you can make your guinea pigs whatever color you like.

LEGO Guinea Pigs Building Instructions

Step 1:  Gather a 2 x 2 inverted slope, two 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side, a 1 x 2 plate with one stud on top, two 1 x 1 slopes, and a 1 x 1 pink round plate.

Step 5: Add a 1 x 4 brown brick and two 1 x 1 brown bricks with one stud on the side.  Add eyes.

Step 6:  Add a tan 2 x 4 plate on top of the head.  I actually think that a 2 x 4 brown plate would look cuter, but I couldn’t find one.  Do whichever color you like!  Then add two 1 x 2 inverted slopes – one on either side of the head.

Step 7:  In this step, add a 1 x 2 brown plate, a 1 x 2 tan place, a 1 x 2 brown tile, and two 1 x 1 tan slopes.

Step 8:  Add a 2 x 4 tan brick.  It is placed right behind the 2 x 2 inverted slope from step 1.  Then add a 4 x 6 tan plate for the body.

Step 11:  From back to front – add two 2 x 3 brown plates.  Then place a 1 x 4 brick and two 2 x 2 slopes on top of those.  Add two 4 x 4 tan plates and then two 2 x 4 tan plates in front of those.  Just behind the head, add a 2 x 2 tan plate, a 1 x 2 brown plate, and two 1 x 1 tan slopes.

Step 12:  Turn the guinea pig upside down.  This is how it should look at this point.

Step 13:  Fill in the tail end with a 2 x 4 brown plate (I used two 1 x 4’s), two 2 x 2 inverted slopes, and a 1 x 4 brown plate.

Step 14:  Build the feet.  Each foot is a 1 x 2 slope with a cutout, one 1 x 2 plate, and one 1 x 1 plate.

Step 15:  Add the feet to the body, and add a 1 x 4 brown plate behind the tan plates on the back.

If you have some clear 2 x 2 round bricks, you can make a cute water bottle for the cage!  I used a 2 x 2 clear brick for the top of the water bottle that has studs on the bottom and then it’s rounded on the other side.
