Merry Christmas from Our LEGO Family to Yours!
The word LEGO is uttered at least a dozen times a day in our home. With three boys, my entire world often revolves what’s being built, what kit Jorryn wants next, and what character Jorryn has created with random LEGO pieces. So I knew without a doubt that the opportunity to make our entire family a LEGO Minifigure Family would be a hugely popular idea.
Not only was it exciting because it was LEGO, it turned into a great project to do together with Jorryn. I let him determine what each of our figurines would look like and he had a great time — and plenty of laughs — trying on silly outfits and hats on each of us. In the end, I think we actually look pretty realistic. Although, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jorryn really wearing a chicken hat before!
Creating your own LEGO family card is super easy.
- First, you will add all the members of your family. You can choose to add an adult, child, baby, dog, or cat. You enter in a name and then you can customize. You can choose facial expression, hair/hats, skin tone, and outfits. Jorryn also thought it was fun to click “randomize outfit” and let the computer choose a wacky outfit. In the end, he ended up deciding each combo instead of leaving it to chance.
- Next, you can choose your background. We decided to visit the North Pole in our card. But you could also be on a stage or among a background of leaves. Naturally, since Jorryn was in charge, we tried each background several times before settling on the North Pole. 🙂
- Finally, you can edit your card message. We chose Merry Christmas, but there are several options, appropriate for whatever your family celebrates.
- Once your card is complete, share it with the world! You can save the image, share via social media, or even email it. This would be a fun image to include in your Christmas email or card.
Even if all you do is print the card and put it on your fridge, it was a great chance to slow down and have a few hearty laughs with my oldest boy. Take a moment to enjoy the LEGO Minifigure family card with your family this weekend!
