A few weeks ago we received our Lego Club Jr. Magazine. If you have kids I highly recommend signing up for this FREE 2-year Lego Club subscription. Kids love getting mail with their name on it and it has some fun, simple projects for the kids.
In the back of each issue they share one or two simple, step-by-step projects you and your kids can make using Legos they likely have on hand. Sometimes we have to improvise with color or sizes but generally speaking we are able to make these projects, or something very close to it.
In this months magazine they had a Santa. It is so much fun. My son and I had a great time finding the Legos and putting it all together. Santa proudly sits on our mantel.
Well, after we made Santa we were excited to make a few other Lego creations to join Santa. I headed over to the Lego website where they share the directions to A LOT of other Lego projects. The Lego website rocks because they include the building instructions to all the Lego sets they have sold over the years. These online instructions come in handy when the originals get torn, lost or otherwise destroyed - trust me on this! The Lego Club section is awesome too. In the building section they always have 3 or 4 simple projects, similar to those shared in the magazine. I love these quick, simple projects.
So, to add to our holiday Lego creations, I simply did a search by keyword on this page. I searched for "snowman" and "Christmas tree".
For the snowman we used the Extended Line: LEGO Snowman: B1 40003. We made a few slight modifications based on the Legos we had but I love how it turned out.
Our Lego Christmas tree is VERY loosely based on the Extended Line: LEGO X-Mas Tree: B1 40002.
This is NOT a sponsored post and I am by no means being compensated for this post (although if Lego and or their marketing agency wants contact me we would LOVE to continue to write more gushing posts about the wonders that are LEGO creations). Call Me!!! Really!!!!
