After she bought the Heart Lake Lego mat, I decided enough was enough…..and resigned myself to the fact this isn’t a short lived phase. Since they will be with us for a while, we should organize and centralize. So we made a ‘Lego Table’ for them.
We made the table tall enough for totes to easily slide under it and I used grooved trim on each end so she can insert instructions while assembling new Lego kits.
It was a very easy project made from 2×4’s and plywood. Instead of the mat, large Lego plates can be used and easily secured to the table with construction adhesive.
I also liked this Lego Playhouse http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/04/lego-playhouse.html -but made my daughter’s Lego table a height at which she could comfortably sit while building.
