  1. 1

    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.

  2. 2

    Use the utility knife to cut a hole in the top of the box that is large enough for the child's head.

  3. 3

    Glue 4 or 6 empty plastic containers 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.

  4. 4

    Attach the last container on the top of the small box using glue. The small box should fit on the head and still allow the child to see.

  5. 5

    Choose one colour for the Lego costume. The most common Lego colours are primary blue, red and yellow.

  6. 6

    Paint each side of the large and small boxes and plastic containers. Spray paint provides an even coverage. If the kids want to help, use large brushes and a lot of matte craft paint.

  7. 7

    Finish the costume by selecting clothing in the same color to be worn underneath. This can include a long-sleeved t-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and painted or dyed canvas trainers.
