Utah Boy Builds Amazing LEGO Portrait of his 6th Grade Teacher

An 11-year-old student built a LEGO replica of his teacher — the kid definitely gets an A-plus for his amazing way to show appreciation for his instructor!

Sixth-grader Landen spent four months and roughly 10,000 LEGO bricks to create the portrait, according to his mother, Rachel. He showed his work in Collin Seastrand’s class at Meadow Elementary school in Lehi, Utah for the school’s Teacher Appreciation Week.

​"Landen chose a Lego replica because his passion is Legos, and he felt it would be a good way to uniquely show how much Mr. Seastrand means to him," Rachel told FOX Television Stations. "Landen says Mr. Seastrand is kind, compassionate, and has helped him personally through difficult times."

​Landen saved his teacher’s picture from Google Classroom, uploaded it to an app for pixel arts, and used the individual pieces he ordered from LEGO along with some of his own blocks. He was able to create a LEGO replica of Seastrand’s face in three-dimensional form.

​"He always shows he cares about each individual student, and he’s very compassionate," Landen said. "He’s made a big difference in my life and I’ll never forget him."

Rachel said Seastrand mentioned to her that it “was one of the coolest things anyone's ever done for me." Alpine School District thanked the teacher “for creating a classroom environment where students can excel,” on a Facebook post.
