Lego Masks

My next craft post is up on ParentSavvy


My Almost Teen Mica has 3 Things He Likes: 

  1. Reading
  2. Listening to Music
  3. Building with Legos
I decided to take what he likes to do, and bond with him. At first there was resistance. It's not that he doesn't like spending time with me, nor does he dislike building with Legos. He just wants to build what he wants to build. I like trying to get him to think outside the box a bit.

Building Lego Masks:

We used to make Duplo Masks, but never jumped over to making them with Legos.

First I had him separate Legos out by color. He was resistant to the sorting process, but it did get done.

I laid down on one of his pillows and said, "Ok start."


Here's Mask 1:


I said, "Ok, so now build one with more volume. Think about where my cheeks are. Add something on my forehead.

Here's Mask 2:


I said, "Ok, so now build one with even more volume. Do something with a beard. That would be funny."

Here's Mask 3:


That was the winner. I just had him add a bit more. Like a nose, and hair.


We both liked it when I stuck my tongue out.


Have you ever liked masks? I do I have a few in my house. I love the ones on Novica's website. African masks are my favorite I think.

He really got creative with them. Love the detail he added as he got more involved in creating them. Yes, I like masks but don't own any myself. Novica does have some really lovely ones on their site!

That's exciting. I found a list of activities kids can do over a month with legos. I don't have it right now, but you could probably google "lego month long challenge" and find it. Building a mask with legos is definitely different and a great idea for keeping kids busy during the summer!

Those turned out fun. My son is resistant to let me build with him too. He knows what he wants to make, and I get in the way. He doesn't mind a bit if I sit and watch though. ;)
