Never Lego My Heart Valentine with Free Printable

We are a Lego obsessed household. I honestly didn't grow up with Legos and so when my daughter was old enough for my husband to pull out his childhood Legos I was surprised by how much fun they had. Since that first night of Lego building, every Christmas and Birthday has revolved around Lego sets. Even the baby got in on the Lego love this last Christmas when we started buying her Duplos. They are a wonderful toy and I enjoy fostering the love of a toy that brings so much creativity.

This year, my daughter was talking about wanting to get Legos for her valentines. She loves minifigures and wanted her class to have some. Since minifigures run 3 for $10 at the Lego store, there was no way I was buying 26 of them, so she helped me make chocolate ones instead. She was thrilled with the results and they were easy enough that she made them almost by herself.

You will need: 

  • The Lego Valentine Printable at the end of this post
  • Yellow Candy Melts
  • small cellophane bags
  • yellow and white baker's twine
  • scissors
  • a hole punch
  • a Lego Minifigure mold, I used this one, it comes with the minifigure and a Lego mold for about $6

Add a handful of yellow candy melts to a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir the melts and then microwave for 30 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate is completely melted and stirs together easily. Add the chocolate to your minifigure mold and allow to sit until the chocolate is set.

Pop the chocolates out of the molds. Take a small cellophane bag and add a minifigure to each one. Print the valentine found at the end of this post and cut them out. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the valentine. Slip some twine through the hole and then use the twine to tie the bag with the minifigure in it.
With just a little bit of work, you have a cute and fun valentine for any Lego lover!

I need to get my hands on that candy mould!
My kids are HUGE lego fans so if they gave out valentines like this it would fit perfectly with their personalities.

That's adorable! I never had legos as a child, either, but they were a staple for my younger brothers (8 years difference, toy trends changed, lol). The middle child still gets legos every Christmas, now they're just the big Star Wars sets!
