DIY LEGO Christmas Projects:

Take a look at these DIY LEGO Christmas projects and see if you have the pieces to build the ones you like. Keep in mind you can substitute pieces and be flexible with colors, or you can purchase individual pieces through the pick-a-brick section on the LEGO site.

For pieces you may need visit the official LEGO shop!

  • Go to the Pick a Brick section through the link above
  • You can then choose whatever pieces you need

There are some fun minifig heads, bodies and accessories in there too–which we love to get. We enjoy collecting unusual and useful pieces for our stash.

Make Santa’s Sleigh!

Chris McVeigh has a wonderful LEGO Santa’s Sleigh to build. It is so fun to make. Chris generously shares directions for his builds on his website. Scroll to the bottom to see the sleigh.

LEGO Gingerbread House

I was super excited to see his LEGO Gingerbread House and hope you like it too. Pretty neat, eh? I am inspired to make one myself!

DIY LEGO Christmas Reindeer

Love reindeer? Then why not make an easy to build reindeer made with plates from Frugal Fun for Boys. They also have a wreath that is pretty simple but impressive. Either one would also make a nice gift tag for a Christmas gift.

Build a LEGO Christmas Tree

Try this simple LEGO Christmas tree. I like this because it can be made with bricks you likely already own.

DIY LEGO Christmas Gift Boxes

Here are the LEGO Gift boxes that have a hinged lid. Pretty neat, right?!

Build them together OR you could stick a printable gift certificate for a LEGO experience into one of these little LEGO packages for a really neat Christmas surprise.

See our LEGO Gift Guide, some wonderful LEGO experiences, and a free printable gift certificate too!

I'm having trouble with the link to build santa's sleigh and the gingerbread house. It just takes me to Chris' website, but I can't find the sleigh even after clicking around.

Why do you make it sound as if lego is only for boys? My daughter loves lego, as have my sister and myself when we were kids. I think this is an unnecessary restriction for a fantastic toy.

Hi Alanna, Well, I publish a website about boys' learning so the focus here is on boys. Of course girls play with LEGO. (I did and still do.) I never said they didn't. There is no restriction. My whole site is about raising boys who love to learn :)
