Lego Craft: Crayon Organizer Caddy DIY!

At our house, we love Lego.  It's a medium that is great for all ages...and no one grows out of them!  I love watching our Lego box collection get bigger and bigger...we are filling totes as fast as Christmas and birthday's rush by!  It's worth it though, they last forever.  It's National Craft Month and using Lego for crafts is such a fun way to branch out.  This is a fun craft for kids, tweens and teens to make craft supply caddie for their desk.
 These Classic Lego boxes are perfection.  I love the range of colors and sizes.  Perfect for a variety of builds.  This Bricks on a Roll set is perfect because it includes a huge variety of wheels.  This is a great set for creative minds.  This set is also available to purchase at Lego stores across the country.

 For this project you will need a large base plate, as big as you'd like your caddy to be.
Also, all the 1x bricks you can find.  I used a variety of shapes, colors and sizes--and I love that part of it.
 This baseplate is 6x16.  It's a great size for a crayon caddy.
 Then build up rows all around the edges.  3 plates stacked equals the height of a brick, so don't forget about those plates too!
This is a really fun projects for kids because it is a very typical design for children to make.  My kids build these "houses" all the time.  I love it!  Just decorate the top edge with funkier pieces: studs, flowers, arches, clear bricks and more!
I love this mission statement from Lego: Inspire and develop builders of tomorrow.
Let the kids make centerpieces to hold pencils, pens, crayons and markers for a party or event.  Decorate and organize a student desk with a whimsical touch!
