How to make LEGO Place Card Holders
The best part about these is you can really use a variety of pieces depending on how big your LEGO brick collection is. To start you’ll use whatever size flat piece you have that’s at least 2 rows wide and 4 rows long. Then use more bricks to create the stand. The stand helps give some height to the minifigures and allows more room for a larger place card so the names are easy to read.
You could write out the place cards or use the free LEGO inspired font to print some out like we did.
Then pick out themed minifigures, or choose and create characters that remind you of each person.
Place your name cards in between the hands and bottom LEGO piece. You may need to trim some to different sizes depending on which bricks you used to stand up your LEGO minifigure.
The boys thought it was funny to pick out (and switch out) characters for each family member. This would be a great idea for a party and you could give the minifigure as a party gift! Since you’ve got all the LEGO bricks out, why not use them to build some Thanksgiving turkeys?
