DIY Lego Shirt for #KidsGoFree!

You know I love a deal, especially when I want to go to an amusement park and starting tomorrow there is one heck of a deal going on! It is so big it not only needed it’s own post, but a shirt to go along with it as well! Today I am showing you how I made this fun DIY Lego shirt for Avery to wear when we make our way up to LEGOLAND California! How does one fit that into the budget you ask? Well, with a little help from McDonalds of course!

Wait, huh? How does McDonald’s fit in to this? Well, rom July 29th-31st at participating #socal restaurants you can score a coupon for a free chid’s ticket with paid adult ticket to LEGOLAND® California Resort and your choice of LEGOLAND Water Park or SEA LIFE® Aquarium with any purchase- that is a $104 value! Pretty sweet, huh?! Especially since there are all kinds of new areas and displays including an 8 feet wide LEGO® Star Wars™ Death Star Model Display in Miniland and the new LEGO® Friends Heartlake City! Avery can’t wait!


We have had fun days at LEGOLAND before and as with most family adventures, there needs to be a special shirt to commemorate the occasion! This time I thought I would make it clear just how skilled Avery is when it comes to LEGO construction and it all starts with a plain t-shirt you can grab from their closet, or the craft store, whatever works for you at the time.

I cut out the “master builder” and LEGO image from black heat transfer vinyl using Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore. The most important part of this process is to make sure you cut the mirror image because of the way the vinyl must lay on the mat.

If you look closely, I made my LEGOS for this image out of 2 different sizes of rectangles because Cricut does not yet have a LEGO cartridge.

After it is cut, the excess vinyl is removed and it is centered on the t-shirt to be ironed.

I give it a couple of passes with the iron on top of the plastic transfer sheet and then I remove the plastic, add a piece of fabric and give it a couple more passes.

Once that is completed, it is done and ready for a day of adventure! This would also be a fun shirt for a LEGO birthday or party favor!

The best part is this is perfect for a boy or a girl! If you want to check out another idea, click the post below to see the Wyldstyle inspired shirt we made for Avery’s first LEGOLAND trip!

    Love this! Our family does Disneyland every 2 years as a WHOLE family (my parents and all siblings/cousins/nieces/etc.) - this year we’re finally adding Legoland to it, since none of us have been there before! Can’t wait ?
