Yesterday I gave you my tips for Organizing for Trips, as well as a free printable packing list. Today I’m going to show you how to make simple Lego and Magnatile Take Along Kits for kids. These are great for road or air trips. They’ll keep small pieces contained and give you a nice storage container to keep them in.
They’re also great for taking to restaurants or doctor appointments when you know the kids may need to wait patiently. Be prepared.
- Metal “lunchbox”: Mine were in the sale bins for $3 at Target
- Glue: I used DAP Rapid Fuse but any really durable glue will work.
- Small Lego plate, Legos
- Tin scissors/snips (or buy plates that fit your box)
- Optional: Label your boxes

These are very simple to make. For the Magnatiles, you can really just throw them all in a metal lunchbox and be done with it.
DIY Lego Take a Long Box
For the Lego box, I used heavy duty glue to attach a Lego plate to the bottom of the box. I pressed down for a few moments to make sure the glue adhered, then let dry. After that, I just added my Lego pieces. I recommend using pieces that are cheap and easy to find and replace. After all, these might get lost and you don’t want to add the original pieces from the handed down 1980’s Lego set.
I recommend labeling the sets so your information is on them if they get left behind at a restaurant or such.
