On Monday, we went to my son’s school book fair. While each of my kids chose a book to read right away, they also chose one for each other to wrap up and put under the Christmas tree. Instead of using plain old store-bought wrapping paper, my daughter made some using LEGO Duplo and paint. I love how simple this easy Christmas craft is. It let her explore with abandon, mix colors, and create something fun to give to her brother.
Lego Printed Wrapping Paper – Easy Christmas Craft
Gather your materials. You will need some paper (easel paper works great), LEGO Duplo, a dish, paint, and painter’s tape. When it’s time to wrap, you’ll also need scissors, tape, and a ribbon.
Start by taping the paper to the table with painter’s tape and pouring some paint onto the dish.
Invite your artist to come explore and make some wrapping paper.
My daughter started slow.
But once she warmed up, she was off her chair and banging the Lego down to make a fun sound on the table.
We let it dry by peeling the tape off the table and then using it to hang the painting on the wall. Let dry.
When it’s dry, trim the tape off and wrap up something special!
I love this idea and it is so simple!

I love this! I’m having my kiddos make wrapping paper for their parent gift box. This would be sweet and festive!
