Let’s build some BIG pictures out of LEGO® bricks!
We’ve done several LEGO® mosaic ideas, and now we’re building mosaics on a larger scale. These 5 brick mural ideas are PERFECT for a LEGO® wall, although I’m going to show you how to use them even if you DON’T have a LEGO® wall. They are also great for collaborative building. Kids can work on constructing these scenes together!
The LEGO® compatible wall pictured in this post is the large blue PlayUp Wall from Creative QT. I’m telling you, this is a brilliant invention! The PlayUp wall comes ready to mount on the wall using the screws and wall anchors that come with it. It’s very sturdy and built to last, and even though it is not an official LEGO® product, it fits tightly with LEGO® bricks. A stamp of approval from us!
We were given the PlayUp wall by Creative QT, but the opinions in this post are all mine.
No dealing with glue and trying to line up baseplates… just hang it up and start playing! There is also an extra large PlayUp wall as well, which would probably be the best size if you’re purchasing for a library or classroom.
Here’s the really good news! My readers can save 20% on Peel and Stick Baseplates, MagPlates, PlayUp Walls, and Story Bricks. Use the code SARAHLEGO20 on the Creative QT website.
LEGO® Mural Ideas
Here’s how to use these fun ideas for creating large-scale LEGO® art!
- Print the building cards at the bottom of this post! They are perfect for creating a building center.
- Or, just look at the photos in the post.
- Or, download the building cards and use them on a tablet.
The advantage of looking at the building cards on a screen is that the images are sharper, and kids can zoom in to see the detail. I was not happy with how the cards printed, but the file that you can download is truly high resolution images at 350 dpi. My husband (who works for a copier company) says that the problem is our paper…
These can be built on a LEGO® wall, but you can also just connect baseplates together! This LEGO® wall is the equivalent of 6 baseplates. If you don’t have 6, build a smaller version with 2 baseplates!
All of these designs were built by me, along with my 10 and 13 year old sons. We had so much fun!
It’s hard to choose a favorite, but this one might be my favorite!
Kids can use any colors they like for the buildings. Repeating a color somewhere else in the picture makes the design look really good!
When my oldest was little, he drew SO many treasure maps! Kids will have fun designing a treasure map with an “X marks the spot.” It would also be fun to add some hazards, like an alligator in the water.
Storybook Castle and Dragon
Build a knight battling a fire-breathing dragon and a castle right out of a storybook!
Here’s a close-up of the dragon.
Under the Sea
Design an under the sea adventure with fish, jellyfish, sharks, starfish, and seahorses. You can even build an octopus! This one is especially easy to build in installments. Just add another fish when you have the time!
Outer Space Adventure
My 10 and 13 year olds did most of the building on this one, and I love how it turned out!
