Decorate simple Easter egg cards using Lego Duplo to make a lovely pattern and creative effect!
With Easter fast approaching we made some very simple yet pretty Easter egg shaped cards using one of our favourite art methods, printing! One of our favourite materials to print with are large Lego Duplo blocks because they are so easy to hold, turn and manipulate for little hands.
We printed using a few different sized Duplo blocks dipped in pastel coloured paints, onto some co-ordinating coloured papers. Once they were dry we cut them into Easter egg shapes and stuck them onto the front of white card to make some pretty cards to give to school and nursery friends for Easter! Great idea, thanks, we’ll try during the weekend but with some self-made paints like jelly, kissel, etc. Earlier this week, I demonstrated how to attach LEGO bricks to wooden trains for LEGO minifigures to hold onto. Using small balls of the poster putty, attach LEGO bricks to the outside of the wooden trains you want to customize. Just remember, this is not an activity for children who may still put toys (or poster putty) in their mouths. For long, thin LEGO plates, I found that a single line of lumps of the poster putty down the middle worked the best. Also, when it comes to Thomas and Friends engines, I would avoid putting poster putty on the engine’s faces. Once I’d covered the first one, the Little Engineer’s hand was drawn like a magnet to the LEGO-covered train the instant he saw it! Other than the wobbling on the boiler, the LEGO bricks stick pretty well to the trains (until you want them to come off). Also, if you have any traces of poster putty left on your trains or in your LEGO bricks after removing them, they come off easily if you dab them away with a larger ball of the putty.
One of the engines we collaborated on was turning wooden Rosie from Thomas and Friends into the Smoothie Express, as the Little Engineer named her.
We were inspired by the LEGO Friends 41035 Heartlake Juice Bar set, which we had to have so our Star Wars minifigures could make smoothies for each other, just like we do in our own kitchen.
Now, with the blenders from the juice bar set attached, Rosie can blend up two smoothies while she steams around the tracks!
He thought it was funny, and wanted me to explain the name and what a phoenix was over and over.
I think Wedge came in and saved the day, putting out the fire on the Heartlake Smoothie Shop.
We’ve since had even more adventures with more trains, but when I tried to take Fawkes apart to make something new, I was told to build him again.

Do you remember the adorable red-haired girl dressed in overalls and holding a seriously awesome Lego set she built herself from a few weeks back? It warms my heart to know that little Rachel Giordano is all grown up and is now a practicing naturopathic doctor in Seattle, Washington. Giordano was given a set of Lego Friends to pose with in this photo, which has since become an internet meme. I think overall Lego is more into sets that are made to make one thing and not as universal as they used to be. The people that are making a huge deal out of something as insignificant as the color of a toy, are the people whose children will have issues. I wish parents would take some responsibility and stop always blaming the toy manufactures. As an adult fan of LEGO I unabashedly admit to loving the LEGO Friends line, more colors and some awesome custom pieces just add so much fun to the LEGO building experience.
Just because they sell sets doesn’t mean you have to follow directions and only make the things in the set. It just happened that the majority of the movies and shows they made into lego were more popular with boys and girls stopped playing with Lego.

Printmaking is so satisfying for young artists and depending on the materials used can create a huge range of effects very easily. The resulting prints are very clear and can be nicely overlapped and built up when using a range of colours together.
I’ve often wished that LEGO made a train that was compatible with wooden train tracks, but could be customized with any LEGO bricks he wanted to use.

Flat LEGO bricks work the best, but feel free to get creative with whatever you have in your child’s LEGO collection. In addition to the choking danger, the little LEGO bricks were too difficult for the Little Engineer to build with himself until he started getting the hang of them at the age of three-and-a-half. The LEGO bricks wobble from side to side when placed along the round boiler, but I found that putting putty along both long edges of the LEGO didn’t improve stability.
However, note that you can build up the front and back to the point that the magnets on your engine won’t be able to reach other train cars.
I think it would be fine to do it once or twice, but I’d worry about rubbing off the paint on the faces over time.
But the whole point of putting the LEGO on the wooden trains was to put more LEGO bricks on them!
But a pinner on Pinterest had a great suggestion to use a cheap wooden train and superglue the bricks onto it. I thought this version of the Smoothie Express was fun, but when I was busy elsewhere, the Littler Engineer made it way better.
I didn’t get a photo of it, but the Little Engineer also went and added the citrus juicer to the wooden train he had covered with LEGO and called it the Juice Express. Click on the banner ad below to see Mixel sets on the Lego website, or look for them at stores like Target. While playing trains for the last four years, my Little Engineer and I have had a lot of fun and learned so much together. Why we should see more like this toy ad from 1981 was all about gender roles that are assigned to kids and their toys, mainly little girls. But I can hardly blame my daughters–I would have loved these little Lego sets as a child, too. Yes, you follow the directions in a set to build a specific vehicle or building or whatever, but over time pieces begin falling off of it. Lego still makes their creativity bucket filled with bright multicolored gender neutral bricks that can inspire hours of creative play. Just have to say, Legos are such a favorite with my grandsons their dog is named Lego by their choice. We have a good collection of Friends, City, Castle, Creator and then mine and my husband’s old sets (Blacktron is still the best bad guy ever created).
Back then they sold mostly generic sets and it was up to the imagination of the child to create. If you are aiming for a specific demographic then find out what you can about your target audience.
3 yo giggled that he was getting the duplo blocks covered in paint while 15 mo stamped away on every side of the block creating his own crazy effect!
I'm excited to share our discoveries with other people who have kids who love trains in their lives.


The 37 year-old recounts her memories of being a child model for the Ford Agency in NYC back in 1981.
But nowadays, it seems that a lot more toys already have messages built into them before a child even opens the pink or blue package. It warms my heart to learn that the little red-haired girl is all grown up now and doing what she loves to do. She has deconstructed all of her lego friends sets and combines the pieces into her own creations with the supplement of the basic bucket. However, when they play together, they bring free sets into one of their rooms and mix and match them. By temporarily attaching flat LEGO bricks to the outside of wooden trains in a way that won’t damage them, this makes for a really fun design project for any kid who loves trains.
In 1981, Legos were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. Then my brother brought over a shoe box full of them which belonged to my brother and me when we were kids.
Pieces get borrowed from it for another creation, and over time that set has been integrated into the giant plastic tote of miscellanious bricks. And to all the people who want to say that LEGO Friends is somehow brainwashing our girls into thinking they can only be pretty princesses I’ll gladly show you the LEGO Friends with swords in one hand and cookies (heck yeah LEGO cookies!!) in the other.
Then Lego discovered that making licensed pre-designed sets sold for much more money with a much higher profit margin. The camper has turned into a jet plane, the pool slide is now a component of the tree house, and the dolphin crusier regularly interacts with her brothers coast guard ship.
But it’s especially great for children who are into LEGO now but still love their old favorite trains, or for older and younger siblings to play together. She was given a set of original Legos and an hour to play with them and encouraged to make her own creation and it is what you see in the ad. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender. We were given a garbage bag full of legos from a friend who’s kid no longer played with them. Since when did being a strong female and liking anything pretty become mutually exclusive?? They shifted focus from regular pieces to set specific pieces with step by step instructions on how to build something from your favourite movie or tv show. She even wore her own clothes in the ad–the jeans, t-shirt and sneakers that she wore in off the street. They do start out by building the set, but most of the time it ends up demolished and the pieces go into bins and trays organized by color, size, etc. Now I have also bought her a bucket of the old generic pieces and she is making great structures. They also make superhero, Star Wars, monuments, robotic, holiday village kits and the list goes on and on. I don’t know if I could have interested her in the first place without those first pink sets. My daughter likes keeping the sets as they are and playing with the characters around the sets. There is no reason 1) Parents have to buy the Friends kits if they feel this is hurting their daughters. 2) Parents who buy the Friends kits shouldn’t feel bad if they are their kids want and enjoy playing with them.
