Hello! I hope you’re well. Like many parents, you likely have a lot of old Lego bricks around your house which your kids don’t want to use anymore.

So here are 14 Genius Tips How to Reuse Old Lego Bricks.

If you have a lot of small Lego pieces, you can use them to make a keychain. This is a great way to keep your keys organized and also show off your Lego collection to your friends.

You can find instructions online, but the basic idea is to glue the Lego pieces together to create a dispenser shape. Then, you can simply place the lotion bottle into the container. This is big fun for younger kids.
3 – Make a Lego Clock
What? A Logo clock?! Yes! This one is really simple. You just need a clock movement kit and a circular baseplate. Then, you can glue the baseplate to the wall and add Lego pieces around the clock face however you’d like.

6 – Make Lego Cupcake Stands
If you want to use Lego pieces in the kitchen, you can make a cupcake stand out of them. This is a fun way to use your old Legos and it doesn’t take too much time to do.

You can make a flower pot out of old Lego bricks. This is a really cute idea and it’s also really easy to do. All you need is a flower pot and some Lego pieces. Then, glue the pieces on the sides of the flower pot.
The amount of pieces you use will depend on the flower pot you choose. You might need more if you have a bigger flower pot, but this is just a general guideline. You can glue them onto the pot for more durability, but this isn’t absolutely necessary.
