When you think of toys that are easy to travel with, you might not think of LEGO toys, right? Well, when it’s your son’s favorite toy you need to figure out quick how he can still bring them with him on a long road trip. We’ve bought LEGO sets while visiting Walt Disney World before and let my son build them in the hotel room but then we had to figure out out to carefully transport them back home. Sometimes he will want to bring a ton of minifigures with him but I will have to limit him because I don’t want them getting lost. That’s why I was so excited when Hayden and I came up with the idea to make a DIY LEGO Travel Box. It’s so ridiculously easy to make that you’re going to ask yourself why didn’t you do it sooner!
Watch my video below on how to make a LEGO Travel Box plus you can also check out the directions below!
- Place the LEGO baseplate on top of the pencil box and mark where you will need to cut. Using a box cutter, cut the shape you will need for the box.
- Make sure to sand the side of the baseplate where you cut so it’s not sharp before you glue it on.
- Squeeze your Krazy Glue on top of the pencil box and then place the baseplate on top, pressing down firmly.
- That’s it – one of the easiest things I’ve ever made and my son LOVES it! He not only brings it with him in the car but all over the house.
LEGO really has so much stuff for on the go! We’ve done several road trips already this summer in addition to just being in the car running errands.
My son has loved bringing his LEGO Travel Box with him along with the LEGO Brick Headz – his favorite he built was the Joker. Of course, there’s a variety of LEGO books to bring with you too when you’re traveling. His favorite books to read are LEGO books and he especially love the LEGO Batman books. The LEGO Batman Sticker Book is a favorite of his and I especially love it for in the car because it keeps him busy for so long!
If your child needs a luggage tag for your traveling this summer, you’ve got to get him the LEGO Batman luggage tag. It’s on my son’s suitcase right now, but he’s asked if he could switch it to his backpack for the start of school!
If you’re traveling this summer, don’t fear bringing LEGOs with you! Make sure to check out my friend Karen’s post on why you should travel with LEGO. I’d love to hear how you travel with your LEGO!
