MAGNETIC LEGO TRAVEL TRAY (FREE LEGO CHALLENGE CARDS)
LEGO CHALLENGE CARDS ACTIVITY
This is a super simple Magnetic LEGO Travel tray to put together, and I found everything I needed at the local dollar store. I love the idea of the tray being magnetic so that all the parts should stay together easily for a grab and go travel activity. Pair with the FREE LEGO challenge card ideas and the kiddos are set.
I chose to use one tray and three of these nifty magnetic containers or tins. You could also use two cookie sheets and put 6 tins on one tray to carry even more LEGO pieces while storing the extra tray for building underneath!

DIY LEGO TRAVEL CASE
You can also turn a lunch box into a handy LEGO travel case for long car rides, family visits, and restaurant entertainment! Just a few supplies and you are ready to make your own DIY mini LEGO storage case. Add the free cards from this page and get ready to play! Download a copy of the LEGO lunch box here.
I really like these LEGO-compatible base plates from Creative QT. We have used them to create our DIY LEGO table which we find super helpful for building with LEGO. This also makes a great portable LEGO table idea.
The same base plates would also be perfect for this project!
HERE’S A LEGO CHALLENGE TO TRY
STEP 1: Print and cut apart cards and place them in an empty box or jar.
STEP 2: Everyone picks a card with their eyes closed, no peaking and no telling.
STEP 3: Set a time limit such as 15, 30 or 60 minutes, whatever your age group can handle.
STEP 4: Secretly pull off building the challenge card and then come back together to share the build!
Might just win you an hour break and a bit of quiet while they are busy building.
