A Printable Lego Valentine for You!

My son is all about legos, crayons for book making and magna blocks. I don’t have any more to say about magna blocks except that they are awesome. But I do have a lot more to say about legos, crayons and valentines!


So what did we decide to do for classroom Valentine’s this year?


Give legos and crayons in the shape of legos!


My favorite part of the Valentine is the lego hearts! These aren’t easy to find! I called the local Lego store and asked if they carried these, 2×2 coupling plates. They said no, those are pretty sought after. Why I asked. Because people like to make them into hearts! Oh…. Yep! That’s why I’m one of those people searching for them!


I looked and looked for these, but none of the tutorials I found, told me where to get the pieces. So I finally found them at Brick Owl. The website is pretty cool. You can pick your country, your brick and your color, then sort by seller and their shipping rates and minimum order requirements. Very cool!


The kiddo’s favorite part is the lego crayons we made!


They are so easy to make. The hardest part was finding the old crayons! I reached out to our neighborhood parenting groups and gathered up everyone’s rejects! Loaded up the silicone molds that I got on Amazon.


Leaded them in the oven on 350 for about 10 minutes. Of course, temps and times vary per oven. Just keep an eye on it.


Take them out of the oven, let cool for a few minutes and then freeze! Freezing is the key!


Then pop them out!


The kiddo loved putting a little of every color in each mold. They turn out pretty muddy. I wanted them all one color. We compromised and just used 2 or 3 colors per mold!


And then we put them all toegther! You can download the card here.


I debated doing a lego heart shape on the front, but decided to leave it off the part and add it to the back.


We can’t wait to give them out! We’ve got a few more to make and load up before the big day. But I think we’ll make it! Anyone else have a lego lovin’ kiddo?

    That is such a fun and creative idea! Those are some lucky kids to be getting those — and a lucky son whose momma takes the time to help him make such fun stuff!

  2. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing your fantastic ideas.
    I can imagine a lot of happy smile from these color legos.πŸ™‚

  3. You never cease to amaze me. These are great!

  4. Wow…wish I had seen something like this when my kids were little…they LOVED Legos…still have bunches of them that we won’t be getting rid of anytime soon even though they’re both in college now. Clever idea. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Love these! My Lego-obsessed kiddo is 10 and I think he’d enjoy making these for his friends for Valentines Day. Thanks for the great ideas and how-to’s!

  6. Thanks for this great idea! I’ve bought the ice cube trays on amazon and printed your printable! As you mentioned the heart-legos are super cute, but too hard to find for my last-minute needs, but even w/o, this is fantastic!

  7. These are so cute! Where did you get the little bags??

    • Thanks! I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I got the bags from PaperMart.com and they are the self sealing bags. But the problem is you can only order 1000 at a time! But you can use them for all sorts of things!

  8. I passed this along to my daughter, who tossed it right back to me to do with Grandson when we are together today. He loved it! I was surprised to find how liquid-y the crayons are when fully melted; had a little spillage coming out of the oven, but the second round is turning out great. Thanks for the idea!


  1. […] writing this, I realized I didn’t really decorate this year! I made a wreath and a ton of kiddo Valentines and my own quilted postcards, which is all WAY more than I usually do for Valentines […]

  2. […] you’ve probably noticed, via IG and our Lego Valentines, we love Lego’s at our house! So when I had the opportunity to attend our new Lego Store […]
