LEGO Build to Give tutorial shows how to build animals

LEGO Master Model Builders Chris Steininger and Pete Donner have welcomes fans around the world into their workshop to show how to build LEGO animals. The duo are supporting the Build to Give initiative, encouraging people to construct little models and share them online.

While Christmas decorations are encouraged, the builds can be anything. For every one built and shared with the #BuildtoGive hashtage, the LEGO Group will donate a LEGO set to a child in need this Christmas.

In the video, Chris and Pete show how to build a reindeer and a robin, also showing off a LEGO hippo, swan, squirrel and lamb. While building and showing the models, they discuss their work as Master Model Builders and Christmas LEGO decorations.

There are two more livestreams scheduled:

The scheme is one of the LEGO Group’s charitable activities that is run in partnership with the LEGO Foundation.
