DIY DUPLO Compatible Toddler Suitcase

If your toddler is anything like ours then they can usually be found attempting to leave the house with arms full of toys, snacks, accessories and goodness knows what else. That's why we came up with this easy DIY Peel 'n Stick Baseplate hack so that your little one can take their favorite bricks out with them, minus the spillages every other step.

 

 

This DIY hack really is easy to do and takes a matter of minutes. Here's what you need:

- One Creative QT® DUPLO Compatible Peel 'n Stick Baseplate (we chose gray)
- Small storage suitcase (ours is from Michaels costing $3.99)
- Sharp utility or craft knife and cutting board
- Selection of DUPLO bricks

 

 

Once you have all of your materials gathered simply mark out the size of the baseplate piece you need for the suitcase using the DUPLO bricks. Use the sharp utility knife on the cutting board to cut against the line of bricks (this helps to get a straight cut).

 

 

Once you have cut the baseplate to size, simply peel off the red backing and stick it onto the surface of the suitcase. It helps if you apply some pressure to ensure that all of the baseplate adhesive contacts the suitcase.

 

 

There you have it, your toddler DUPLO Compatible suitcase is ready for play!

 

 

We decided to add a fun selection of red and purple bricks, as well as a few people and animals. It holds just the right amount for on-the-go play.

 

 

Our keen little toddler could not wait to start building! She used the bricks to build towers and houses for all of the people and animals to enjoy. A great way for her to develop language skills through imaginative play, as well as improving her fine motor skills.

 

 

Once your toddler is finished with their play, simply store the bricks inside and then be on your way!

 

 

Our Peel 'n Stick DUPLO Compatible Baseplates are available in gray, blue, red and green and come in packs of four. Shop the full collection here.
