DIY Lego Play Tray

A number of Easters in the past, as an alternative of giving the youngsters a lot of sweet, I made a decision I wished to  make one thing for his or her Legos.
I began wanting on Pinterest to seek out enjoyable methods to show and/or retailer Legos.

I discovered issues like:


These had been nice, however not fairly what I used to be in search of or wouldn’t work for our wants.
So, I went to the craft retailer for inspiration and located wood trays-the sort that look fairly on a cart or counter displaying wine glasses and such.  So, I believed-why not make them every their very own Lego play tray!
The bought the final 2 trays on the shelf.  They had been pure wooden, so I painted them after I bought house.  Blue for my son and white for my daughter.  I selected these colours due to the vinyl colours I had out there to make their names on my cricut, which was my second step after portray them.

After the trays had been painted and the vinyl letters utilized, it was time to make the trays formally for Legos.  I had ordered 10X10 Lego items from amazon.com.  I measured and laid out the 10X10 Lego squares- to see how they might match, and the way I would wish to chop and piece the Lego platform within the tray.  This labored out simpler than I believed because of the dimensions of the tray itself-WIN!

One LEGO 10X10 match completely!  I simply wanted to chop a second 10X10 to slot in the rest of the house.

The Lego squares are skinny sufficient that each one I wanted to do is reduce them with my kitchen butcher scissors and tremendous glue them to the underside of the tray.

After that, it was finished!  This needed to be one of many best and nicely acquired DIY presents for the youngsters I’ve finished but.  It’s been 2 years and the youngsters STILL use them.

It’s nice as a result of they will decide up the complete tray, with out disrupting what they’ve constructed, and transfer it from place to position.
