For the last several decades, LEGO has been a standard toy staple may be in pretty much every home that has children( or nostalgic adults) in it. They were first created by a Danish carpenter named Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1934; since then, over 400 billion of the familiar plastic bricks have been made.
Aaaand I’m pretty sure most of them are in my carpet, judging by how often I step on one.
Rather than danger unleashing the creek of obscenities( and intense pain in the arch of your foot) caused by errant LEGOs lying around, put the loose blocks to good use with one of these cool, practical projects! Hey, I bet your children would even help; they adoration doing anything that involves building with their favorite bitty bricks( as long as they don’t have to put them away, since we all know that ain’t happening ).
All it takes are some plain magnets and a hot glue gun to turn the doll into fridge magnets.
If you’re not a fan of decorating in primary colour, only spray paint the blocks first. You could also become minifigures or small LEGO initiations, like little aircrafts or lady glitches, into magnets the same way.
This ring project is such a great way to use up all those little LEGO bits and get them out of the house, too, as the tutorialsays they used these as Valentine’s Day classroom gifts! They’d likewise be fun party favors.
You’ll need some inexpensive ring blanks, and after that the sky’s the limit!
