Design your own LEGO Minifigure

Image of a blank LEGO minifigureWho doesn't love LEGOs?

Well, there's probably people out there who don't, but I'm not one of them. And even though I don't own any LEGO sets anymore, I still enjoy them a lot—and I'm sure you do too! So as winter break winds down, whether you own your own LEGOs or not, feel free to take some time to design your own LEGO Minifigure the old fashioned way!

You (or your grown-up) can print out this image (just right click it and open in a new tab to print) and grab some crayons, colored pencils, or markers to design your own Minifigure! It can be a superhero, Star Wars character, or you! You can even use an extra sheet of blank paper to make your Minifigure some hair or a hat—or a few!

And if you don't have a printer at home, you can download the image instead and color it in Microsoft Paint or a similar software. I used Pixlr, a free online image editing website. I've gone ahead and drawn a few examples, but don't let that hold you back. The sky is the limit when it comes to LEGOs, including the Minifigures!
