Parents usually have mixed feelings about Lego building blocks. On one hand, they are great toys that help encourage our kids imaginations and keep them busy for hours. On the other, they are quite expensive and the tiny ones get everywhere! And if you’ve ever had the misfortune of stepping on one with bare feet, you know just how obnoxious they can be! Well, to restore your faith in the Lego, we’ve found a handful of creative uses for these mini building blocks that may change your mind. Check out these awesome ways to put your Legos to good use!
1. Phone Dock
If you spend a lot of time at a desk, you probably find yourself frequently checking your phone as it lights up. Rather than picking it up each time to check your messages, you can make a simple dock for your phone to rest. Then you can just glance over if you see anything incoming and pick it up if you must!

What better way to use Legos then to give them away (less to step on in the middle of of the night, right!)? If you have a small item to gift, you can use Legos to make a cute and unique gift box. You know it will be well protected, because Legos can withstand up to 950 pounds of pressure before breaking! This will be unlike any gift box your loved one has received before.
