We are wrapping up LEGO® week with this fun project – build a working LEGO® night light!

Build a 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.
