We are wrapping up LEGO® week with this fun project – build a working LEGO® night light!
These night lights are fun to build and really light up! We used a battery powered tea light for the light.
Gresham and I had fun building these together. (LEGO® has provided many fun mother/son bonding moments!)
We were able to purchase the clear bricks at the brick wall in our local LEGO® store. Gresham also used some colored clear bricks that came in our LEGO® Classic tubs.
I made a door on the back of mine so that you can access the tea light to turn it on and off. Gresham chose to just leave a large enough opening on the top of his night light.
We bought our battery powered tea lights at Michael’s. They are not very expensive, but this still wouldn’t probably make a great night light for *every* night. Not sure how long they last, but it isn’t terribly long. But still a fun project!
Also, the tea lights do not get hot at all. We left the top open on our LEGO® lights, but I don’t even think that that would be necessary because the lights really do not generate heat.
Be sure to stop by the rest of the LEGO week posts for more LEGO® fun and learning ideas!
