Have you seen those cute Lego head storage jars at the store? Every time I’m at the store and see those Lego storage jars, I wish my kiddos were young enough to have one. Recently, I emptied a square yellow container of corn starch and as I was walking to the recycling bin, it hit me, Hey!, I could make my own diy repurposed can Lego Head storage jar for free!
Not only was this cutie free, but it only took about 10 minutes to make. It’s also simple enough and fun enough for your kiddo to make.
You’ll need a square yellow container (I used an empty cornstarch jar), a black Sharpie, a red Sharpie, some while labels, a hole punch and scissors.
I spent some time looking up Lego face expressions to find 4 that I could draw. If you have a bunch of Lego people around the house, just find 4 with expressions you like.
Don’t over think it, just draw a the face with the black Sharpie.
With the red Sharpie, draw a tongue. Punch the white eyes out of the label with a hole punch and add them to the black eyes you drew. Use the scissors to cut teeth (a simple rectangle) from the label and add it to the mouth.
I also drew an angry face,
a Grrr face,
and a winky face.
Don’t worry if you’re not an artist (I can’t draw a stick figure). You can practice drawing the faces on paper first. But they really are simple to draw.
Just think off how cute your Lego storage will be with this DIY Repurposed Can Lego Head!
And for the older Lego fans…
