We are heading on a long road trip this summer and I knew that my boys would do much better in the car and at the hotel if they had legos to play with in their spare time. I saw some travel lego boxes made of wooden boxes with hinges (most of which seemed to break soon after). We were after a cheaper alternative that would last.
We found the Sterilite Boxes for $2.27 at Hobby Lobby. Bought the 10″ lego plates on Amazon for $5. Cut them in fourths and glued them with E-6000 on the top and the inside lid (wow – double-sided). So – total price for one box = just under $6 (only $4 one-sided… I just happened to have the extras).
Anyhoo… I’m not a crafty tutorial expert, but I think the boys will be happy. Did you know that the duplo blocks fit on the mini lego plates? Bonus!
Last year I made some Lego Pattern images for my 3-year-old. I’m just barely getting them put together so he can actually use them. Perfect surprise for our car trip.
Thought I’d share the 4×6 Lego Patterns. There are 14 included.
