DIY LEGO® Compatible Table Kit
My kids love to play with Legos and have a ton of different sets. I try to encourage them in what they like, but I hate stepping on lost bricks and parts on the floor. They have bins, but when they get them out to play, pieces end up all over the place. I think I have the solution!
I love the idea behind this kit. A ready to use Lego station that you can build on over and over. The kit comes with everything you need, the base plates, sandpaper, glue and detailed instructions. For me, selecting the table was the most difficult part. It is easy to find one that fits, but I wanted a certain look to mine. Once I found it, putting this together was a snap.
All you have to do is lightly sand the back of the base plates and the table area where they will go. Once you have them sanded, apply the glue and place them carefully, then use a few bricks to hold them together while they dry. Set something heavy likes cans or books on it to hold it down while the glue dries and that's it!
I had to measure my table to find the center, so I would have even spaces along the edge. I wanted a place to keep bricks while they play, because my kids like to grab what they need and then build. This way they would have an area to set them. I love how the table turned out. It holds together well and the kids love playing on it. They didn't even want to wait for the glue to dry.
This is such a great gift idea. Buy a table that you like, you can get one to fit, or a little larger like I did. When you finish creating the table, add some Lego sets and figures, and you have an awesome gift for a kids room or play room. My table has a drawer too, so you can store the bricks right in it and not have them all over the floor!
