Mini Desktop StoryBricks™ Drawers

Looking for a mini but mighty addition to your child's desk either at home or in the classroom? Why not turn a small set of desktop organizing drawers into a fun literacy learning tool using Creative QT®'s StoryBricks™.

 

 

What you need:

- a Peel 'n Stick Baseplate from our MakerBase® Collection

- a pack of StoryBricks

- a set of mini desktop organizing drawers (available in the back to school section of stores like Dollar Tree and Walmart)

- sharp utility or craft knife

- chopping board or craft mat

- LEGO® bricks to cut against

 

Mini Desktop StoryBricks™ Drawers
You can head to our Instagram feed to watch a Reel showing exactly how easy it is to cut our baseplates to size for this project. Simply mark out your cutting line using LEGO bricks and then go over that cut line 5/6 times using a sharp craft knife. Gently bend the baseplate until it snaps and then cut through the backing. Peel off the red backing and then apply some even pressure when sticking the baseplate to the top of the drawers.
All that's left to do is pour in the StoryBricks and removal tools. This learning resource would make a perfect little literacy center, or even be great for brain breaks throughout the day. We had a blast making CVC words and leaving messages for one another on here! You can head to the blog for some great ways to use our StoryBricks, including this fabulous post by @pinkpolkadotsandprek, as well as this round-up blog showing how the StoryBricks are used with affordable DIY Mini Makerspaces.
