Well, we’re back from our mini-vacation, meaning that we’ve got stable internet access. We missed a day as we were traveling back so you’ll find two posts tomorrow as an IOU!
For today, we’ve created a lego theme. They’re super simple to make, and you will be able to bring the nostalgia of childhood memories into your community.
What you’ll need:
You’ll additionally want to have a glue gun or foam tape and a sharpie. You can mix and match the colors of the card stock. Don’t have a circle punch? Don’t fret. You can simply use a circular object such as a lid to trace around. This circle is approximately 2 inches in diameter. Our card stock has been pre-cut into
2. Place the adhesive onto the back of the circle. If you’re using a glue gun, drop a large dot of glue in the center of the circle. Allow it to cool a bit and then place onto the top corner of the other cut sheet of card stock. Press down softly, allowing the circle to stick out just a bit. If you are using foam tape, simply adhere the tape onto the circle and press it onto the cardstock.
3. Repeat step 2 until all of the circles are places onto the card stock. Place the resident’s name onto the bottom right corner circle. We’ve added variety by cutting the card stock into a smaller square and only using four circles.
You can even print their names out using a lego type font.
- Building a strong resume: Post information on what makes for a great resume. Check this link out.
- Recreate this party plate idea by cutting out yellow lego people and posting them around your hallway.
- Using the door dec tutorial, create extra legos of various colors and shapes. String them together to make a garland that hangs throughout your hallway.
- Wish your residents a great start to the semester. Collect mason jars, decorate them to look like lego people, and fill them with goodies such as pens or candy.
- “Lego” my Eggo: Host a brunch that features a waffle bar. Set up waffles and various toppings for residents to customize their plate. Use this event as a way to teach your residents about the importance of breakfast.
- Team builders: Take the concept of team building to the next level. Contact a local chapter of Habitat for Humanity or another similar type of organization and volunteer for a day of building a home in your community.
- What would a lego theme be without some real legos? Have a lego competition to get your creative sides going. You’ll be amazed with what your residents will come up with.
