Making a Lego Table!!!

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:-)

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
