Back to School Flash Drive

Back to School sneaks up on me every year. The Summer just flys by But I love getting the kids ready for going back to school. Do you remember how fun it was to get new school supplies and clothes? I can even remember all the smells of going back to school.

I was inspired by my 2 youngest boys. They love Legos. My youngest just can’t get enough of them. Both of them are always coming up with these incredible designs, so I thought I’d take a clue from them and come up with some Lego Back to School designs of my own. How about a Lego flash drive?

It was simple enough to do. Just take the outer plastic covering off the flash drive and you end up with just the (guts).

Build a Lego design to fit around the flash drive. The tighter the fit the better. Just because I think it looks better.

Slide the flash drive in the Lego cover.

And use a tiny bit of super glue to hold it in place.

Pretty nifty! Don’t ya’ think?

And since they love Legos so much I thought they could use some magnets and push pins to hang up all the school papers they bring home.

I just used E6000 and glued the magnets

And push pins on. Aren’t they cute? Now I just need to think of some other fun things to make with Legos. That is if the boys will let me borrow a few more.

    I have been waiting seemingly FOREVER for this post… haha jk. I LOVE this idea, and am so glad you are smart enough to know how to do it. I’m making this for my little brother as we speak…well maybe not right now, but you get the point. 😉

    I think you better just go buy your own legos- I’m pretty sure the boys are going to wise up to the fact that your “borrowing” turns into keeping! 😉 And I don’t blame you- these are pretty cute. I am seeing lego decor in my boy’s future too. 🙂
