LEGO Duplo Stamps for Preschool Art
LEGO Duplo Stamps are easy to make and a fun way for toddlers and preschoolers to create art! Remember, even if you don’t have these exact LEGO® Duplo bricks you can always use what you have! Learning will take place anyway!
- variety of Duplo bricks
- tempera paint
- large sheet of white paper
- paint tray
- large sponge brush
- Use Duplo bricks to build stamps in various shapes and sizes (2×2 bricks can be used as a handle for the stamps).
- Spread out a large sheet of white paper on a table or flat surface. Use tape to hold it in place.
- Set out a tray of tempera paint and the Duplo bricks. Invite children to create with the stamps.
This activity lends itself well to the adorable children’s poetry book Block City by Robert Louis Stevenson. Check out how we used LEGO Duplo stamps for a creative activity that went along with the poem illustrated by Daniel Kirk HERE.
