I found this wonderful idea at FlithWizardry for making paper creations with the help of lego. All you need is some thinish card, hole punch, lego and of course drawings.
As you can see we weren't as accurate as filthwizardry with hole punching skills, but it still worked. I had planned to make lego people of the children by printing images and laminating them. I have now realised that the laminating part would not work as it would create too large a gap between lego connections making them fall apart (very frustrating). So will have to settle with no laminating!
