Small hands can make it tough to hold a ton of playing cards, so built simple DIY LEGO playing card holders for any card game. Specifically, we built these game card holders for our Pokemon cards. When we had a neighbor boy over to play, I realized that my son would need a good way to keep his Pokemon cards up off the table so his opponent could not see them. At the same time, he still hasn’t mastered the art of holding playing cards! This simple LEGO playing card holder solved our problem!

I know as an adult, it can be challenging to keep track of a dozen playing cards when you are trying to hold them in one hand! It must be 10x more challenging for young kids and small hands especially when you are still trying to master the rules of the game and work on strategy at the same time. Up until now, we have simply laid our cards face up on the table in front of us. This allows us to help him play his cards and not worry about holding them! But…..

MAKING LEGO PLAYING CARD HOLDERS
You can see from the photos above, how simple the construction of the LEGO playing card holders is! The base is made up of several thin plates that come out to be 6 studs wide by 44 studs long. This is a great length and width to comfortably hold the minimum seven cards and then a few more without taking up to much table space. We used 2×2 and 2×4 bricks to go completely around the front, back, and sides of the plates. You should see 2 rows of studs left in the middle where the cards will be placed. We built up the side and back with an extra layer of bricks and then added one more layer on the back side with 1×2 and 1×4 bricks. Simple bricks and a few thin plates are all you need! No plates? I bet you can use more of the basic bricks to create a base!
