We love seeing how creative you all get with our Peel 'n Stick Baseplates! Here is a simple way to create a portable LEGO Compatible makerspace, perfect for any kid's bedroom, courtesy of @hannahfromcalifornia.

Materials Needed:

  • Creative QT Peel 'n Stick Baseplates - I used 8 grey baseplates but they have lots of different colors
  • Large magnetic whiteboard - we got this one from Amazon for $30
  • Sharp utility or craft knife for cutting the baseplates
  • LEGOs or other building bricks (we actually used the larger DUPLOs)

A LEGO compatible building board on one side and a magnetic board on the other! Best of both worlds, right?! This idea came to me in the middle of the night…you know, one of those nights when you can’t sleep and end up redesigning an entire room of your house in your head or adding far too many items to your Amazon wish list.

 

We had this giant magnetic board that was frequently played with, and the other side was just some smooth cardboard. It was the PERFECT surface for something…LEGOs!! When it hit me, I knew I had to do it, and thanks to Creative QT's Peel 'n Stick Baseplates, it couldn’t have been easier.

The baseplates are very easy to cut to size. I used a star craft knife and cut against a line of bricks to make sure it was a straight break. Then all I had to do was peel off the sticky backing and attach the baseplates to the board.

My son loves his building brick wall. I love that it is portable, and multi purpose with the magnetic whiteboard still easily accessible on the back.

Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
