Awesome Ways To Use Legos You Never Thought Of

It would be hard to find someone who has never heard of Legos. The sturdy little plastic building blocks are a right of passage in childhood, and something that many of us so-called “adults” never really outgrow. Did you know that they could be used for so many more things besides building castles and cars?

Check out our list of ten incredible household uses for the humble Lego. From clever ways to organize your life to brilliant ideas to brighten up your surroundings, we’ve got the perfect excuse to get you playing with your favorite building bricks again.

10. Build Your Own Gift Box

You’ve spent a lot of time and effort to find just the right gift. What better way to make it even more special than to use Legos to make a unique gift box to give it in? It can then be recycled to store trinkets and such or disassembled for more building fun. Our next idea would make a great gift as well.

 

9. Keep Your Books In Line

This one is for all my fellow bibliophiles out there. Rather than letting your precious books fall all over into messy heaps on your bookshelves, just use Legos to build yourself a set of bookends to keep them in line. Extra creativity points for matching the bookends to the books. Once you have your books squared away, #8 will help you conquer something we’ve all had trouble with a time or two.

 

8. Search No More

Are you always frantically searching for your keys? Use Legos to make yourself a place to park them and search no more. You can go as simple as a building plate with a few of your favorite minifigs hanging out, or make an intricate pattern to match your decor. Attach a Lego to your key ring and you’ll never have to wonder how they wound up in the freezer again.

7. Brighten Up The Sniffles

Everybody needs a tissue now and again. Instead of being satisfied with the same old boring floral pattern, try brightening up your box with a custom made Lego cover. Whether you go random, as in our example picture, or you just stick to your favorite colors, it’ll make the sniffles a little less miserable.

6. Brighten Up Those Flowers

Nothing brightens up a place like fresh flowers. Unless it’s fresh flowers in a cute rainbow vase made out of Legos. This one is a breeze to make just by building your Legos up around a plain glass vase. For something that is as fun as it is functional, check out the next item on the list.

5. Tame The Messy Desk

If you have trouble with a messy desk, look no further than the toy box for help. Build yourself something like this whimsical desk organizer to keep your pens and pencils, paper clips and post-its under control. The best thing is, if you need more space, just add more bricks. If you like this idea, wait until you see #4!

4. Lego Wall

Looking for a fun new way to entertain the kiddos (or maybe just your inner child)? Setting up a Lego wall is a great way to both decorate and give them a way to let their creativity run wild without worrying about any permanent damage. Our next idea is a super creative way to use Legos to solve an everyday problem.

3. Hold The Phone

It seems like we’re always looking for just the right accessory for our phones and gadgets. Instead of forking over cash for the latest dock that may or may not be what you need, how about using Legos to build a one of a kind rig that’s exactly what you’re looking for? Your friends will all be jealous!

2. Fight The Grime

I know a certain little guy who thinks that washing his hands once in the morning means he can truthfully answer “yes” to the question “Have you washed your hands?” no matter what time of the day it is, or where the hands in question have been. This awesome Lego soap dispenser may be just what I need to persuade him otherwise.

1. Fish Paradise

This is a brilliant idea on so many levels. Obviously, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re going to love watching your fish zoom around the Quidditch pitch. It works for anything though, just use Legos to build your fish their own little world. Star Wars fans can go to a galaxy far far away, Lord Of The Rings fans can build their own Shire, the possibilities are endless.
