Travel Lego Box

Who doesn’t need a travel lego box?
Ok… so maybe not everyone needs one, but my sister’s little boy sure did because he has a slight OBSESSION with legos!! So I made one for him and one for Aubrey. Poor kid’s birthday was at the beginning of August and I just sent it to him, better late than never right? Since we don’t live by my sister anymore the boys talk on skype , it seriously has to be the cutest thing when they actually sit there and talk to each other. Most of the time they end up playing wii while the other watches or Aubrey will run around and leave his poor cousin sitting in front of his computer patiently waiting. There is NOTHING patient about Aubrey : ) Maybe having their lego box at hand will help. - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

When I saw this lego box on Finely and Oliver I knew I had to make this for my sister’s boy!  She has an awesome tutorial over on her blog so make sure to go check that out!

These have to be the funnest little boxes ever! I did a few things different so I’ll give you a rundown on what exactly I did, but for the basic tutorial you can check out the tutorial I linked to above.

– I used a flip top box from Hobby Lobby (it was only a few dollars)
– I modge podged some Star Wars Fabric onto these boxes because the boys are obsessed with Star Wars! - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

The box above is Aubrey’s. He already broke the lid. Let’s be honest.. pegs smaller than a toothpick weren’t going to last long in his hands! But it still works great, his lid just comes off and there isn’t anything poking out to hurt him… it’s almost as if it were never attached. - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

If you notice, I did paint the lids and the sides where I didn’t cover the box with fabric… it just made it a little prettier : ) - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

It holds plenty of legos and I can’t wait until Liam gets his so I can so the boys play with their travel lego box on skype. My plan is that it will keep them busy for hours! Might help my sister out, not sure I’m so lucky though! - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

I think the funnest part of this whole project though was letting Aubrey pick out the fabrics. We went to the fabric store and I laid out all the “superhero” fabrics for him and he picked his fabric, his cousins fabric, and was so proud of himself all the way through the store…. because we all know how much mama loves the fabric store and he got to help this time!! - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

What would your little boy put in his lego box? Do your kids just build random things like mine… or are they like Liam and know exactly which legos build which toys? - Travel Lego Box #lego #storage

      Thanks so much! I think I have some other nephews who will be getting these too! : ) My sister’s son hasn’t gotten his yet, but he’s already so excited from the pictures. I can’t wait to see him play with it!

      Thanks Lori! We are driving home to Texas for Christmas so these will definitely be coming with us! I’m sure I’ll still have legos all over the car though, it’s inevitable.

    Yay! So glad you were inspired by my LEGO boxes. Yours turned out great! Such a fun idea to mod podge fabric around the sides – very clever. Cheers! Grace

      Thanks Grace! Our boys LOVE these. My nephew hasn’t even gotten his yet but he has seen the pictures and he is soooo excited. My son can’t have legos quite as much since my daughter swallowed one, lol.

      Thanks Heather! Yeah… Is witched at the beginning of the summer. I’ already ready for a change though, I have some kind of disorder when it comes to blog design, lol.

    I love this lego box. My kids would have a blast with it. I found your site through the Sasse Life’s Sunday Social. I am your newest follower. I hope you have an opportunity to stop by TheStuffofSuccess to say hello. Have a terrific week. Athena

    This is great! I love how you added the lego plate to the top so it not only stores legos but provides a space to play! If you ever come up with a solution to keep legos from falling in between the car seats let me know. I dismantled my back seat just yesterday in search of a Boba Fett’s head :)


    • Ashley says

      HAHA, My sister would love it if there was a plan to keep them out of the car, lol! I don’t let Aubrey take them in the car because my daughter will get them and put them in her mouth, but we still end up with some in the car, lol

      Thanks so much Jill! There is a magnet that keeps it latched, of course my son broke his already, lol! My sister’s son is a lot more careful with his toys : )

    You are an awesome aunt. What a great gift. I can see these boxes getting bigger and bigger. LOL! My boys had both situations; some legos were kept separately because they built a certain project, others went into the big bin for creative play. I have a few posts about lego creating, from when my kids were a tad younger. They still have their legos though.
