This is a fun and easy way for children to use items in their surroundings t aid in their art projects. For this project we used Lego bricks as stamps for our corn. After the paint dried, we cut the corn shapes out. We then cut out green oval shapes and then cut them in half to create the corn husks.
Silicone molds are a new found treasure in our home. They can be used for baking, as well as crafting. We found a set of three Lego shaped molds on Amazon (they can be found here).
The preparation; We collected all of our old or broken crayons, peeled off the labels, and cut them down to a smaller size. When filling the molds, you'll want to make sure that the molds are full but not overflowing.
To melt the crayons; We baked ours in the oven at 325 degrees, for about 15 minutes (or until the crayons were completely melted). Then carefully removed them from the oven and allowed them to cool for about an hour.
This is a fun way to get kids interested in washing their hands. We peeled the label off a bottle of soap, then shoved a Lego person and some Lego bricks into he bottle of soap.
Supplies Needed; Metal jewelry loops, yarn, lego bricks, power drill, pliers
Drill holes in two ends of the lego brick, then drill a corresponding hole in the adjoining side. Thread your loop through the holes creating a loop to thread your yarn through. Repeat on opposite side.
Thread the yarn the loops and tie to child's wrist. Allow the child to attach other legos, or lego people to their bracelet.
Using either of the two templates (shared below), print out the design. Then cut out the stencil. Fold your paper in a zig-zag pattern to match the width of the stencil. Cut out the stencil leaving the "thumb" and flat side of the body uncut. Then unfold and you will have a paper chain of Lego figures.
