Easy, quick and effective, I love these chubby LEGO Christmas decorations. A couple of years ago I came across the LEGO tutorials for some cute Christmas-themed decorations. They’re the perfect Christmas activity for the LEGO-obsessed in your house and let’s be honest, it’s a good way to keep the extra blocks off the ground and avoid the dreaded Stepped-on-a-LEGO injury, the worst pain of all foot-related pains!

What you need to make LEGO Decorations
- LEGO blocks, assorted sizes in red, green, white, black (or any festive colour!)
- DUPLO or larger blocks for smaller tots.
- Kits / Tutorials
What to do before
Talk about why certain decorations are used at this time of year and share memories of your own childhood Christmases. The children particularly love to hear about how we even played LEGO back in the ‘olden days’.
What the kiddies can do
If you have one of the Christmas LEGO kits, they can just follow the instructions, with help from grown-ups. If you’re making your own designs, help the kiddies find all the pieces they need to help their imagination come to life.
What to do with the finished work
Pop them in the window, on a mantlepiece or a shelf. If you’ve got a Lego brick with a hole in it, get the kiddies to put it near the top of the decoration, slide a ribbon into the hole and hang on your Christmas tree.
