Homemade Gift: Lego Book

We attend a lot of children's birthday parties for various school friends, neighborhood friends, and family friends. All of those kid parties start to add up, especially when you need a gift to bring for each child. I prefer homemade gifts whenever possible. I think they're more thoughtful, heartfelt, appreciated, and creative.

But what do you do when you are running out of time, ideas, or you just aren't that crafty?

We came up with the "Lego Book" as a solution for one of "E"s friends recently.
She noticed that he enjoys playing with Legos  during indoor recess (so do we!)
We love collecting our Lego building ideas in a three ring binder that I keep in our block center.

We made this little boy, his own book out of a three ring binder with a custom cover typed on our computer.

We printed out lego construction ideas/instructions on card stock (to make the pages sturdy) and slipped them in protective covers.  

We got the directions from the Family Fun and Lego website and packed his  book full of ideas! Simple and fun.
