Robot prints with Lego

Kids love printmaking. I guess that’s because you don’t have to be a big artist to get nice results. Even when you don’t have that many art skills, your prints can turn out amazing. A while ago I got the idea to makes some prints, using flat lego bricks. We chose to make robots prints with lego.

Materials for prints with lego

Robot prints with lego

  • Build a robot on the ground plate, using flat bricks
  • Roll ink onto the robot
  • Print your robot
  • let the robot dry

In artclass

The kids learn about shapes, lines, positive and negative. The flat bricks limit the possibilities somewhat. You can’t make curved lines. That’s why I chose to build robots. But kids are inventive. So you can give them freedom.
My daughter made a wand and a spaceship.

Other possibilities

Use different colors or go all abstract on this project…

kleine robot
Little robot
drukken met legoblokjes
Big robot
ruimteschip drukken met legoblokjes

These prints were made by my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter. Do you like our robot prints with lego? What would you make?

Great fun and learning about printmaking in one!

Take care en see you soon

Love Ilse
