While playing DUPLO with my 7yo I thought it would be fun to try out some new terrain techniques using pieces I had lying around!

DUPLO SNOT Terrain Techniques


These SNOT (Studs Not On Top) and base techniques can be used to make an array of different fun MOC landscapes:

A knight’s first glimpse of the ocean


Vegetation can also be used on its side!


Sideways DUPLO even make a good base for normal system LEGOs


My kids can be pretty rough with DUPLO, often using them to build Minecraft pickaxes and bang them on DUPLO rocks


You can use a hacksaw to turn partially broken DUPLO into smaller 1×2 plates and bricks


Smaller system LEGO can be put on top of DUPLO to make massive scenes!


Because LEGO fit on top of DUPLO bricks, they are perfect for building large bases


You can put 2×2 and 2×4 LEGO bricks on top of the DUPLO studs


You can place 2×2 and 2×4 LEGO bricks on the DUPLO studs


The resulting base is quite sturdy (though heavy!)
