Know a LEGO fan? Try this clever idea to make a handy travel case out of a tin lunch box to help kids bring along and build LEGO sets on the go! This could be a lifesaver when traveling, waiting at the the doctor’s office or restaurant. It takes just a few minutes to make, and would make such a fantastic and unique gift for LEGO loving kiddos.
DIY LEGO Travel Case
LEGO Classic Baseplate
Tin Lunch Box
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Directions: On the back of the LEGO baseplate, mark how big you need it to fit on the top portion of lunch box. Keep in mind that you’ll want to cut it small enough so that the lid can still close.
Carefully use a ruler and press down with a utility knife to score the plastic. Bend the baseplate back and forth a few times and it will split where you’ve cut a line. Glue it to the top of the lunch box.
Place LEGO bricks inside box.
This is such a quick ten minute craft that works great!
