Recently my kids have become quite the Lego enthusiasts, and it got me thinking back to my Lego days. When I was about fourteen (yes, fourteen) and my Lego playing days were over, I decided to put those old blocks to use and created a Lego tissue box holder for my recently made over bedroom. I just had my parents dig it out of my childhood closet, dusted it off and added it to my son’s nightstand.
The dimensions of this box are 34 x 20 dots and 11 blocks high, with flat panels across the bottom and around the edge of the top. It fits a standard box of tissues. I also built it so that one wall (the right one below) was a separate piece from the rest , so I could slide the box of tissues in from the side without too much destruction. You could also leave the bottom open if you prefer, but I wanted the stability of a bottom panel.
So if you have your own Lego fan, this is a super easy project to add a little Lego love to your child’s room. You can always find old Legos on eBay if you don’t want to dig into your kids’ collection. Happy building!
