If you buy a boy some Legos, chances are he'll want to get more. If the boy gets more Legos, chances are he'll need some place to display them. I saw this on pinterest and thought we could do something similar.
First step was to find all the Lego dudes as we refer to them at our house.
We set up a hospital of sorts, putting legs and hands in one area, heads in another and accessories in another. Using this method, many Minifigs were able to make a full recovery.
Next step is start assembling Minifigs onto the 2 X 2 squares.
If you buy a boy some Legos, chances are he'll end up with about 100 Minifigs. A 100! I couldn't believe it.
If said boy has a toddler sister, then one must find a way to keep the Lego dudes out of reach.
Jake and Coleman attached the back of the square using a hot glue gun to two inch moulding.
Then Jake nailed the moulding to the wall. Some of the Minifigs came off, but they just got glued back on.
The wall display is impressive and best of all, since we are renting, it's portable and doesn't damage the wall. The display has become quite the conversation piece and everyone loves talking about their favorites.
