Other than Lego, Lego, and more Lego, my kids didn't really ask for anything specific. So I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try a Pinterest project  that I've had my eye on for a while: The Lego table:

This was one of the more complicated Pinterest projects I've attempted (the first ones were a tattoo and tying a scarf (shut up) so this was a bit of a reach for me. And I had to make two because God fucking forbid that my tho little angels have to actually SHARE anything. But they are cheap, made from the IKEA LACK tables that cost about $8, and four Lego plates which cost about the same. And they came out awesome:

Here they are under (or in front of) the tree in Christmas morning, awaiting the chaos of the kids waking up:

But I didn't stop there, oh no. I was on a Pintrest roll and if there's one thing that my kids are into more than they are Lego, it's Star Wars. Besides I had to do something with all the fucking pool noodles that were left over after I made the ugly red wreath of love, so I attempted this:

Lightsabers made from pool noodles and gaffer's tape. It's genius - they can whale on each there all they want with little risk of actual injury. So I took the remaining red, green, and blue pool noodles, enlisted the help of a willing lackey, and went to town:

They ALSO came out awesome. I think.

So I count this Christmas as a Pinterest win. Yay!

Pin It!
