I was challenged as part of the Chick-fil-a Moms panel to try one of their delicious soups and then upcycle the soup container into something new. Since we are all about recycling and upcycling, it was a fun opportunity to get creative! Since we are a huge LEGO loving family, I decided to upcycle our soup container into a LEGO on the go container. It was met with huge cheers from my kids, and a request to go and get more soup so that we can make one for each child! I love when a project comes together!
Want to make your own? It’s incredibly easy and you probably have most of what you’ll need already at home!
You’ll need the following:
Carefully glue the LEGO plate 6×6 corner rounds inside the top of the soup container. Make sure the center edges are touching. Place an object on top of the brick plates to hold them in place while it dries. Let stand for 24 hours. (if you don’t hold them in place while the glue cures the plates will buckle and you’ll need to start again)
Add LEGOS from your child’s stash. Try to mix up the sizes and make sure to include a few mini figures! I also found it helpful to include a brick separator as well.
Watch the creativity explode! The best thing about LEGOS is that my kids never build the same thing twice, and it’s really fun to watch all the kids create together. Of course, now they all want their own LEGO on the go container, so I think I see a few more trips to Chick-fil-a in our future.
Good thing it’s our favorite place to eat!
