14 kid-friendly Christmas Lego ideas + a $500 giveaway

There are so many fun festive Lego ideas out there I thought I would pull together some ideas for Lego Christmas decorations and gifts for Lego fans – here are 14 kid-friendly Christmas Lego ideas to keep kids busy during the festive season.

14 kid-friendly Christmas Lego ideas

Lego Christmas decorations

This year we will be trying to make some Lego Christmas decorations. I really like these handmade Legoman snow globes and Lego baubles. You could also make Lego candy canes and Christmas trees and I love the idea of printing out some simple instructions for my 4 year old so he could make some on his own. I wouldn’t mind attempting this amazing DIY Lego wreath by Mommy Testers once the children are in bed!

How about adapting this sweet Lego card holder, which is perfect for little people playing card games, to make place settings for Christmas dinner?

Handmade Lego gifts

My children will definitely be receiving a few Lego sets this year. I like the idea of giving handmade lego gifts and there are some brilliant ideas. Lego crayons make a great stocking filler and are a great way to use up the boxes of crayons we’ve collected. Or how about these cute DIY Lego magnets? These simple Lego gift boxes would be perfect to hold small gifts. Lego bricks are perfect for printing on to paper and making your own Lego print wrapping paper.

Lego soap would make a fun handmade gift for Lego fans or DIY Lego storage jars which could hold all kinds of treasures (or just a place to put those small Lego pieces).

If you are giving a Lego set this year I’ve found a great idea to make a Lego tray to go with it, this would make a great Christmas present.

Finally, if you’re facing long journeys over the festive period why not make a portable Lego kit for little travellers to keep them busy, here’s a fun smaller kit too.

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Little Sis was the lucky recipient of a new finger puppet book as part of the Parragon Book Buddies review club.

Little Learners finger puppet book

She loves a new book especially an interactive one – even if her fingers are too small to reach the end of the puppet.

Baa Baa Black Sheep is a Little Learners Finger Puppet Book.

This adorable nursery rhyme board book features a fun sheep character finger puppet toy built into the story, encouraging interactive play, hand-eye coordination and language development. The book is the perfect size for little hands, and it is ideal for reading and for playtime on-the-go.

This is a classic nursery rhyme and one which we enjoy singing every week at the library. Little Sis loves the little book and is almost able to read it herself.
