LEGO Gifts – Kid Made LEGO Photo Pen Holder

Hey guys, guess what! It's time for the Toddler Approved LEGO week again! Today I've got a super simple idea for Kid Made LEGO Gifts! I've added some affiliate links too, FYI.

Photo Gifts for Mom - Kid Made LEGO Pen Holder

We are just getting into LEGO versus DUPLO here at our house so it has been fun to see the kids dive into this new building material!

Today we made two super simple Photo Frame Pen Holders. This red one would be great for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day. We eeked it out of this Cottage set that we used last year for the LEGO Lantern, which has been stowed away in the closet since the last Daddy Daughter Campout.

The blue one below is pretty similar but we made it mostly from this basic LEGO set. We borrowed a few pieces from the other set but if you're the “LEGO, LEGO, Everywhere” kinda family, you should be just fine!

You basically need a clear door piece, a small base plate and enough bricks to build the size pen holder you want.

We did add a thin layer of bricks behind the photo so it didn't fall out.

We also had to get a bit creative with the usage of our bricks. We are not quite at peak LEGO phase yet. The front and back were two dots wide, but the sides were only one dot wide and there was a bit of variation on the inside, but the outside looks nice! 😉

You just trim a photo down to the size of the door and pop it in and voila! You've got a great LEGO Mother's Day Gift, LEGO Father's Day gift or…any kind of gift!
