LEGO Travel Kit From an Altoids Tin

Introduction: LEGO Travel Kit From an Altoids Tin

I personally LOVE altoids but I have nothing to do with the tins except to throw them away. So I did some snooping around on the internet and found this awesome way to use the altoids tins as a mini lego kit that I'm going to show you now.

Step 1: Materials

For this project, you will need:

  • 1 Altoids tin
  • 1 tube of superglue
  • A few flat LEGO pieces ( enough to cover the entire top of the Altoids tin.)
  • Some of your favorite LEGO pieces

Step 2: Step 1: Supergluing the LEGO's

` Now, take the flat LEGO pieces and superglue them to the lid of the Altoids tin. If you want to you could even glue some thin and flat LEGO pieces to the sides of the lid or make a pattern out of the LEGO's.

Step 3: Step 2: Filling the Tin

This next step is very simple. All you need to do is put all of the LEGO's that you picked out inside of the altoids tin. You might need to arrange them in a certain way to get all of them to fit if you picked out a lot of them.

Step 4: Step 4: Usage

Great! You're finished. Now, to use it you just need to grab the pieces you want to build with and build whatever you want to with them on the top with them on the top where you superglued the flat LEGO pieces and HAVE FUN!!.

    Wow. I actually keep some of my legos inside that exact Altoids tin. And my brother has that Simpsons lego character. I could totally make this! Good job!
