Today I am sharing my Free Printable with you. This is perfect for any Lego lover.The kids can create their own little figurine and while working on them they train their fine and gross motor skills.What you need:
- Cardstock Paper
- Brass Fasteners
- whole punch
I’ve printed each out and cut them into pieces so I could get them into a bag. Depending on the age you can either already cut them out or leave them for the kids to cut. Same with the punching the wholes.
The kids can use a crayon, pencils, markers or paint. We used pencils and crayons. First we colored them and then we cut the pieces out, punched the wholes in the marked spots and used the fastener to get them attached.
You can also add stickers to the bags for decorating. I included instructions for parents and a warning of small pieces. These are fun and can be used as party favors or an afternoon activity. We used ours for Valentine’s! I’d love to see your creations ! Post them on my Facebook wall and let me know what you think. Free Printable Lego Puppet Made by Lili
Everyday when I open my mailbox it’s filled with paper ads. Credit card ads, Roofing companies, pizza deliveries etc. My stomach turns when I think about how much paper we throw away on a daily basis and how much it goes to waste. So why not use the paper ads and turn them into something fun and beautiful?!
Here is a quick and easy, especially cheap tutorial on how to add charm to your room.
This also reflects the last blog post I did on how to save money. I spend about 1-2$. And here are the the things you need:
- Your paper ads – use the carton ones, glossy, non gloss, doesn’t matter how much text, you will not know what it says afterwards. There are a couple election ads in there too 🙂
- Exacto knife or scissors
- Ruler to create the shape you like
- Transparent paper, parchment paper, vellum paper
I created a star template and traced those on my ads, cut out the shapes of the stars and then the inside. I used different sizes to use as much paper as possible and to minimize the waste. You can easily involve your kids on this too, it’s not that difficult.
Then I added glue to the outside and placed it on the transparent paper.
I put something heavy on the stars while they were drying, so they wouldn’t wave and stay flat.After cutting of the outsides, I used double sided tape and put them on every window. Depending on the weather, the light creates a magical Winter Wonderland in our house.
Or from the outside – we did get snow this week. I might have been a bit more excited about the snow than the kids. Almost couldn’t sleep and woke up our oldest a couple times 😀
I also created these little villages out of paper for the windows.
