My boys love, love, love to save their money. It kind of makes me laugh to see them counting their dollars and coins and keeping them stashed away in a safe place. This LEGO bank is the perfect place for kids to store their cash or other treasures that are important to them.
I love how these LEGO banks turned out! You could totally customize their faces to look however your kids want them to look.
LEGO Bank Supplies
Here’s everything you need to make a LEGO bank:
- Jars of your choice with or without lids
- Utility knife
- Cutting board
- Hot glue gun
- Yellow spray paint-We used Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover in Gloss Sun Yellow
- Black electrical tape
How to Make a LEGO Bank
For any jar you choose to use, wash and dry it completely. Try to keep it as clean as possible so the oils from your hands don’t transfer onto the glass.
To create the small jar without a removable lid, you’ll need a piece of cardboard. Trace the top of the jar onto the cardboard and cut it out with scissors. Use a cutting board and utility knife to cut a slit into the jar top, making sure it’s big enough for your coins and cash. Use hot glue to affix the card board to the top of the jar.
Then, use a marker as a template to trace a circle onto your electric tape and cut out the eyes.
And last, stick your facial features onto your jar and press down firmly.
