Both of my children love Legos. Until recently, I would always have them work on a tray at our kitchen table. While this was fine for a while and great for when we were building sets, my son would always end up spilling a bunch of legos on the floor.
When my son was 2, we purchased a train table that was blank. It had raised edges, 2 drawers, an a reversible tabletop.
At first it was dedicated to trains. Then we put the trains away and it was a play surface for their toys, and now…It’s all Legos. We had been having the kids play with legos on trays, but they now want to have soooooo many out, that they knock them off the tray.
Now, the train table had a few features that I modified to work with Legos.
1. There were access holes in the surface of the table. To fix that, I put a post-it note on the underside and secured and reinforced it with tape
2. I needed to fix the handle opening. A lot of train tables have handles that aren’t flush with surface, but ours were so I needed to fix it. I did a quick fix of card stock paper cut to cover the handle and then secured and reinforced with tape.
My children LOVE this Lego table! They can spread all their legos out and they don’t end up on the floor. They also love that they don’t have to put their creations away each time we need to use our main table.
This project was not big. This project was not expensive. This project simply fixed an issue that was driving us all crazy. A simple fix:-)
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
