Build some teeny tiny LEGO® projects like tiny vehicles, tiny animals, little bitty robots, and more! Once you get started with these, you’ll think of all kinds of ideas! The kids and I really had fun with this one.
If you’ve followed this site for very long, you may know that we sort our LEGO® bricks by color. Well, recently we’ve also started a separate small bin for the “tiny” stuff – bricks that are only one stud. It has made it very easy to find the right color and shape of whatever tiny brick we are looking for! We have the eyes sorted separately.
We did not make step-by-step instructions for these because they are so small and simple. You can see almost every piece used. A couple of the projects are easier to build if you have more than one view, so I have extra photos on those.
It would be fun to build a whole miniature scene to go with this little jeep!
The piece that we used to hold the tire on the back is somewhat rare – it’s a 1 x 2 plate with an axle on it. If you don’t have that, a 2 x 2 will work just fine.
I just love these! It’s amazing what you can make with just a few tiny pieces.
This photo shows how the arms and hands are attached to the robot.
Inserting a 1/2 length blue pin into the wider end of the lime green round brick effectively gives it a stud on both ends.
The black nose is attached to a 1 x 2 plate with one stud (jumper plate), which is attached to a 1 x 2 brick with two studs on the side.
We thought cones were cute for legs, but 1 x 1 round bricks are great too!
Use whatever colors you’d like on this project.
This one was designed by my 10 year old. He was so excited to show me this, and I love it!
This photo shows how the wings are attached.
Both the gray 1 x 1 brick and the black 1 x 1 brick have studs on two sides. This allows you to attach the eyes and the wings.
This adorable bird was created by our friend Addie. I just love this design!
The wings give it a lot of personality. Use two 2 x 3 slope bricks for the tail.
My 13 year old designed this awesome eagle. It’s one of my favorites!
Build a long neck dinosaur! Use any color for this – it would also look great in blue or orange.
This idea came from a friend. Thank you, Scott! Such a cute little cat.
The eyes and nose are attached to a 1 x 2 – 2 x2 bracket. This bracket is inverted, but a regular bracket would work just as well. It would just attach to the top of the head instead of the bottom.
Here’s another view of the cat.
Build a tiny airplane! My son built this one all in light gray, but I think it would look good with blue wings or maybe red.
This is another of my favorites! Designed by my 13 year old son.
Use a 4 x 4 plate as the base for this cute little turtle! Then the head is built on a 2 x 4 green plate.
Such a simple design, but it really looks like a John Deere tractor!
