A little while ago AshleyAnn did a post about making lego mini figures with her kids... and since my boys are equally as lego-obsessed, I thought that they would love to do this too.
The boys had so much fun deciding on what characters to make. However, we used modeling clay instead of salt dough, and I just assumed that all modeling clay hardenend, but apparently we had the non-hardening kind, and so ours never hardened completely. Next time we will try modeling clay that hardens, but the softer counterparts have held up remarkably well.
Anyway, this is a great project to have in your back pocket for a rainy day.
All you need is:
Lego Mini-figure tray
Sharpie (to draw faces and details)
