Don’t you just LOVE these paper Minifigures?! My son asked me to make a craft for him and this is what we came up with. What a great craft for boy scouts, classrooms, birthday parties, and just for fun.
Get the Free Lego Craft Template below and you will be able to make enough supplies for 12 kids (or more!) with about 10 minutes of cutting.
Did you know Lego introduced Minifigures back in 1978? Read more at Wikipedia.

Make this Lego Craft for Preschoolers while reading these Fun Books:
Step 1: Download and Print the Free Lego Craft Printable Template
Download the Free Lego Craft Template. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.
Step 2: Staple and cut out the Minifigure shapes
Once you have the Lego craft template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
You can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.
I will say cutting out the hands is a little tedious, just make sure you have at least 5-6 pieces of paper stapled together and you’ll have enough hands in no time!
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much fun making these fun paper minifigures!

Step 1: Start by gluing the shirt onto the pants.
Step 2: glue the shoes behind the bottom of the pants.
Step 3: glue on the paper minifigure’s head.
Step 4: glue the hands behind the shirt sleeves.
Step 5: choose your hair and glue it onto the head.

It took me about 10 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?!
This is such a simple and fun craft. It’s perfect for boy scouts, classrooms, birthday parties, or just a fun craft at home idea.
As always, I try to make my crafts fast, easy & inexpensive. Enjoy!
