Lego Costume

Follow these simple directions to create a Lego costume.

Lego Costume

Time: About one hour

Effort: Easy - no sewing required


  • Cardboard boxes (one for child to wear around body, the other smaller - maybe a shoebox - to wear as a hat
  • Butter or margarine tubs, or plastic/paper cups
  • Paint
  • Glue

Instructions: Cut holes in box for child's head and arms. Cut holes the exact diameter of the cups/tubs. Put the cups in the holes. Glue cups in place, let dry. Paint box and cans any color (red, yellow, blue, green, etc.). Optional: Have child wear clothes the color of the Lego, so the box can be a little shorter.
