25 LEGO Crafts We are Obsessed With

By  | 

No matter the weather, LEGO are ALWAYS in season! If the guys in your household are ready for a new build challenge, show them this post.

There are toys such as a balloon or rubber band powered car, a catapult, marble run, zip line, and a chess set. Lego as functional art is featured on a clock, a belt buckle, a friendship bracelet, a wall hanging, a lamp, a table, as magnets, on a notebook and a key holder.

Make any table ready for a round of ping pong with Legos. Store Legos in a Mason jar Lego head or take them with you in a handy travel case. Use them instead of a paint brush, do an experiment or form them into a candy dispenser.

You can even wash your hands with Legos. Play fair. Be square. Yea for Lego!
