A Lego man costume is fun and easy to make and always turns out great. It is so easy to do that even the kids can play a part. This costume requires only a few materials and a little bit of time. A Lego man costume is great for trick or treating or playtime.
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 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.
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.
Choose one colour for the Lego costume. The most common Lego colours are primary blue, red and yellow.
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.
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.
