Things You'll Need
- Large box
- Small box
- 5 to 7 Empty 16 oz butter tubs
- Hot glue gun
- Utility knife
- Spray paint or matte craft paint and paint brush
Make the arm holes. Find a box that is not much wider than the child's body so the arms comfortably fit through the holes. Use a utility knife to cut two holes on opposite sides of the top of the box.
Use the utility knife to cut a hole in the top of the box that is large enough for the child's head.
Glue 4 or 6 empty butter tubs spaced evenly apart on one side of the large box using a hot glue gun. Allow the hot glue to cool completely. This will become the front of the Lego man costume.
Attach the last butter tub on the top of the small box using glue. The small box should fit on the head and still allow the child to see.
Choose one color for the Lego costume. The most common Lego colors are basic blue, red and yellow.
Paint each side of the large and small boxes and butter tubs. Spray paint provides an even coverage. If the kids want to help, use large brushes and a lot of matte craft paint.
Finish the costume by selecting clothing in the same color to be worn underneath. This can include a long-sleeved t-shirt, sweat pants and painted or dyed canvas tennis shoes.
