Make this cute DIY Lego pencil and craft holder with your kids. This post is sponsored by Verizon FiOS as part of the #FIOSPhilly Campaign.
A few weeks ago, I was in the craft store with my boys and we came across a cute Lego pencil holder. My older son (the crafty one in our family) had an idea to make his own Lego pencil holder. It looked simple enough, so we grabbed a few supplies for under $10 and headed home to start our project.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Plastic jar (something that won’t break)
- Yellow acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
- Black permanent marker
Now you can do this one of two ways. You can either paint the outside of the jar using the paint brushes or you can paint the inside of the jar. We painted the inside, which is super easy and makes less of a mess.
Squirt paint into the jar and secure the lid.
Once the lid is tight, shake the jar back and forth until the inside is completely covered with paint. You may need to add more paint if you can still see through the jar.
Draw a face with permanent mark on the front of your Lego jar. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just have fun with it! Give your Lego guy a beard, glasses, or anything else you can dream up.
Let your jar sit for a few hours or overnight to make sure it’s completely dry. Then add pencils, colored pencils, craft supplies, and anything else you’d like. My son put pencils in his jar and uses it at his desk. He loves it!
It was a rainy Saturday, so after the boys were done with their jars they continued the theme by watching Lego shows together. We are a Verizon FiOS customer and I love On Demand because it gives us access to thousands of titles. There’s never a problem finding something to watch. We scrolled through until the boys found a show they both agreed on. They were happy as can be with a bowl of popcorn, lounging on the couch, and watching new shows they haven’t seen before. In my eyes, it was a perfect Saturday!
