My husband and I were chatting about buying my son a lego table for his birthday. We looked around and found a cheap one for $50 but it didn't look very sturdy. The only other one we found was a wooden table at Toys R' Us for $160! It included the table and two chairs and that's it. We were going to buy it but then decided he could just use his desk and settled the matter... until I found a plastic table sitting on the side of the road for free. It was in perfect shape so I scooped it up, wiped it down with Lysol wipes and put it in his room. And the brainstorm began! I picked up a large Lego base and some Super Glue (Gorilla glue would be good too), and glued it to the top of the table. That's it! I let it dry a few hours and revealed it to my son. It was an INSTANT hit.
I chose to use only one square tile because my son likes to drive around his set-up, and he can still place other bases around it. If you get the table the right size you could place 4 of the squares on the tabletop and have a larger space to work with! I am actually considering doing so as the Lego collection grows. The Super Glue is pretty stuck, but with a little muscle power I think I can get it to come up... there will definitely be pulling and tugging involved if I try.
Below are a few of my most visited posts. I hope you enjoy looking around!
I try to host my parties for under $100. I want them to be festive and fun, but not break the bank! Most of my parties include free printables for your use. Please remember, they are for personal use only!
