This past week, I’ve received holiday cards with perfectly styled children smiling on them, as well as wildly creative cards using sidewalk chalk or album cover art, like the holiday cards we featured in our Creative Holiday Photo Cards post. But, what I haven’t seen come out of my mailbox is a family turned into LEGO minifigures. Until now.

Whether you want to send a quick e-card greeting to friends and families, or if you just have a little LEGO fanatic who would love to see his or her family as minifigures, you can create your own free LEGO minifigure family holiday postcard to share.

My family (shown at top) was easy to create using one of several greetings like Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or Feliz Navidad. Then chose from 14 different background scenes; my family is on a cobblestone street, but your family could be on a sunny beach or on a frozen lake. You can then create your minifigures which is so fun since there are so many faces, hairstyles, and clothing options from which to choose. You can even add the family pet in the scene, like our dog Star.

Once your minifigure family is set, your postcard is ready to download or share to social media. Don’t worry: LEGO will ask for the postcard maker’s age before letting them access your social media accounts, just in case your little joker decides to make you look like you might after an especially tough night with the baby.

For us? This was way easier than trying to get the five of us (six, if you count the dog) to look at the camera at the same time. And, I think I look pretty good in red.

Create your own free LEGO Minifigure Family Postcard for the holidays. Postcards can be downloaded or shared.
