Do you have a child who really likes LEGOs? I do! Daphne’s entire room is pretty much a shrine to LEGOs. They are everywhere. And lately, we’ve been exploring different LEGO art ideas, including the Pictures in Playdough I shared last week.

Well, here’s another one!

LEGO prints are an easy art activity and best part is that all you need are paper, stamp pads, and LEGOs!

This low-mess project is a fun option for kids any time, but especially great during transitions times (think after school, prepping dinner, etc.) because of the easy set-up/clean-up.

It is also open-ended so each child can explore the activity at their own level and create what interests them the most in the moment.

  • LEGOs or Duplos
  • Washable stamp pads*
  • Foam sheets** or paper
  • Damp rag

*The washable part is important! There are plenty of ink pads at the craft store that are NOT washable but you don’t want to use those. You want to make sure your LEGOs can be washed off easily afterwards!

**Foam sheets from the craft store are super easy to use for this printmaking project, because the LEGOs can sink into the foam a little bit to create a crisp print. However, paper will work great, too!

INSTRUCTIONS

Stamp pads, LEGOs & paper for creating LEGO prints

1. Set up work space

Protect your work space with an art mat or a large piece of paper. Gather LEGOs, washable stamp pads, paper or foam sheets, and a damp rag. Scissors might be a good idea, too, for cutting your paper/foam into different sizes or shapes.

Repeat the printing process to create a scene, image, or design. You can use various sizes and shapes of LEGOs or colors of ink.

You can also combine LEGO printing and collage. Here Daphne printed skyscrapers on different colored sheets of foam and glued them onto a white background to make a cityscape. She also did this with the LEGO print robot in the top image.

Some ideas for LEGO print inspiration:

  • houses
  • cities
  • castles
  • robots
  • cars
