I’m not sure who originated these boxes. If you know please leave a comment because I would love to kiss their feet. My kids LOVE their Lego boxes. I made them before we went on a weekend getaway. We really try and avoid electronic devices whenever possible and I’ve gotten into the habit of carrying a tote bag filled with coloring books and crayons. My kids have grown a bit tired of that so I needed to find something new to occupy them so we could enjoy a meal in (relative) peace and quiet. We had to wait an hour for a table on our trip and my kids didn’t complain. Okay, maybe they complained once or twice. But, really. That’s practically nothing.
Spoiler alert – all of Brayden’s friends will be getting one of these for their birthdays this year. Really I am just doing their parents a public service.
They are so easy to make. I bought a metal lunchbox from Hobby Lobby for $6.99 (you can also find them on Amazon Prime) and you will also need a Lego Base Building Plate. They can be found pretty much anywhere Legos are sold.
Next, I put the lunchbox on the Lego plate and used a Sharpie to mark where I needed to cut. I used regular old scissors to cut it and then I glued it to the top of the lunchbox with a glue gun.
We personalized it with some stickers.
And then added a small box of Legos.
We met at Chickfila and both boys played with their Lego boxes instead of playing in the play area. I think that alone says how much they love them.
