I saw a cool idea for a Lego Tray on Somewhat Simple. I took this idea and ran with it, yes my normal over achiever took over. It was my bosses son's birthday a few weeks back and I wanted to do something fun for him. He took a bunch of friends to the Lego Movie so I knew this would be a GREAT gift for him. I ordered President Business and the Executron off Amazon. Well it of course took forever for these little guys to get to me, then it got crazy busy around her so I'm a little behind on the shipping of this gift.
What you Need:
Lego Building Plate (Found on Amazon)
Wood Box (Michael's)hen
3M Spray Adhesive
Lego's (to build and to spell Name)
Hot Glue Gun
The wood Box wasn't an exact fit for the plate so Rick cut it down for me and added the strip that we cut also into the box to make it almost a complete fit. He used the 3M spray to attach the plate. We then put some heavy items on it to make it stick. Once that was dry I added the 2 men I bought. Cole built a race car and a track. Then I went to spelling out his name on the top of the box. We have a TON of Lego's so instead of buying more I just used some of the boys that they had that they hadn't played with. I arranged the Lego's using different sizes and kinds to spell his name and then hot glued them down to the wood lid. Tada done! It was a pretty simple gift to make but I think really cool and any boy would really like it.
