Portable Lego Case

3. Portable LEGO Kit for Little Travelers

From Mama Papa Bubba

There are many ways to assemble a portable LEGO kit for your little travelers. This one utilizes an old school style metal lunchbox. To make this version, you’ll also need a large LEGO building plate, some sharp scissors, a sanding sponge, mounting squares, white felt, craft glue, and a bunch of LEGO bricks. You’ll begin by cutting down the building plate to fit securely in the lid of the lunchbox. The corners will need to be sanded down a bit to make them rounded to match the shape of the lunchbox lid. Removable mounting squares (adhesive) will hold the building squares in place. You’ll cut the felt to fit inside the bottom of the lunchbox to help cut down on the noise of the LEGO bricks (which tend to clang against the metal lunchbox). A scrap piece of the building plate is glued in place to help keep the LEGO pieces in place.
