Who doesn’t love a LEGO creation? The kids spend hours building in this house and it really brings their imaginations to life.
It’s so versatile and fun and perfect anytime.
The 7-year-old has a real love for LEGO and loves nothing more than to receive it for birthdays and Christmas. And it’s a great opportunity for him to have a goal to aim for whilst saving money.
With this in mind, we decided to build a light-up LEGO money bank for him to collect all his pennies. It was really easy to do!
First, we found an old jar which we washed out and carefully dried. I then used a sharp knife to make a slot in the top.
We then found a good-sized base plate to build on and started our build around the jar to enable us to get the size right.
We built all the way to the top and slotted the jar in so we knew how high we’d need to build.
I then used a string of wire battery-operated lights which I wrapped around the jar and secured with tape.
Have you seen our totally awesome
Once we had finished the roof, ensuring we left a gap to be able to slot the money in, we popped it over our jar.
And how utterly cool does it look in the dark?
He was so pleased with his creation and he can’t wait to get saving!
Do give it a go!
