Christmas is coming, the shops are getting busy and you will be thinking about when to get the Christmas tree down, we have some fantastic blogs that show you how to make your own LEGO® baubles!  


Here are five fun designs for trimming your tree.  


Build a Nutcracker, a Penguin, a Gingerbread Man, a Candy Cane, and a Tree.  


Below are instructions and parts lists for each of the items above.  If your kids don’t have the exact pieces or colors we used, encourage them to get creative with what they have.

The trunk is a 2 x 2 brown plate on top of a 2 x 3 brown plate, and it attaches to the back of the tree.
