Last year I made my love a handmade Lego calendar. Anyone that knows Maxwell knows that he’s a grown up kid and loves Lego! Like really loves it!!!
I had seen the official Lego calendars and whilst they were cool, I thought I could create something even better and super special for him….. Here’s what you’ll need…
*A Lego Kit
*Lots of small chocolate treats
*twine or string
*little tags (optional)
And here’s how I did it…
Stage 1, buy a load of little envelopes (I found mine at Hobbycraft) Make sure theres enough in the pack to last the whole month!
Now for some reason the rest of my photos didn’t load correctly so you’ll just have to imagine…
Once all the envelopes are sealed (with optional stickers) you will want to punch a little hole in the top corner and tie on a little tag with the day on the month on (again, this is where your super organised self will be feeling super smug) if you don’t have/didnt get tags, just write the number on the envelope!
Then just grab a length of twine and peg (using tiny mini pegs) the envelopes on. (i did it in a random order for added rummaging fun!)
And you’re done!
I pinned ours to to back of our bedroom door….. and there you have it, obviously you can mix it up and change things to suit your preferences, this is just what I did, and let me tell you, It went down a storm, huge girlfriend brownie points for Ami!
