The solution to this problem seemed simple enough; just build a dedicated area for Lego play and building. Besides utilizing unused space, I also wanted to implement the design in a way that would allow for a little more creativity during building. The actual attachment of the MDF board uses short drywall screws to fasten all the pieces in the exact locations needed.
After getting all the MDF boards in place and making some final double checks on the placement I moved forward with gluing the Lego plates onto the MDF support boards.
With all the plates installed, and the Lego bricks at all the edges lining them up, I let everything dry overnight.
In order to facilitate easier builds and to get all the bins of Lego spread throughout my house into one place I bought an Ikea Trofast organizer with bins and put it up right under the build area, this allowed for easy and quick access to all my Lego bricks and makes building an ease. The biggest problem I ran into during this whole project is that there were a couple of spots where the wall geometry is not perfect and square, so I just kind of had to make due and roll with it.

This BuildToExpress set from LEGO Education includes over 200 LEGO elements in a separate storage box. LEGO has finally come out with a line for girls called “LEGO Friends.” LEGO has conducted some research over the past few months on why boys can sustain a higher level of interest in LEGO play than girls. They also realized that after having a group of boys and girls who were separately building LEGO towers, that the boys would build the tower and then use it as a back drop to their sword fight. This often means pulling out the bins of Lego bricks and clearing a spot on the floor or a table and having at it.


Only one small hitch, my house isn’t big enough to devote an area for just Lego play. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a big flat space of Lego plates but I wanted something a little more than that. My basement was the ideal place in my house since it was already my principle domain and a favorite spot for all kinds of Lego, computer and general geekery projects. Using a very thin amount of Liquid Nails and spreading it with an old plastic card across the surface, I put each board in place one by one.
I really enjoy the new things I can do with the vertical and inverted building that I had not played with before. Be amazed at the ingenuity of American Indian and non-American Indian LEGO brick artists and try your own knowledge and skill.
To make these alternate builds all you need is the LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set that goes with the alternate build.
This build to express kit offers children the ability to expore how the world exactly works. All bricks have been carefully selected to provide a broad spectrum of ready-made-metaphors within a unique curriculum based 'Build and Share' context. Although they firmly believe that the LEGO building experience is gender neutral and children should choose toys based on their interests, they really only have a small amount of girls playing with the LEGO bricks.
Whereas the girls would build the tower and then look inside to see if there was anything to play with. After only three months on the market, LEGO Friends has tripled the number of girls interested in LEGO play. Having a 3-year-old girl, I was thrilled to hear that she would now have more LEGOs geared more toward her type of play. Before my life in NYC, I was working as a professional makeup artist working in the fashion, television, and film industry. With bricks flying and hands madly building it’s only a short time before robots, dinosaurs and all kinds of fun Lego creations are scurrying about. So I started thinking, I needed an area that I could use as a Lego build area and never take it down, but I didn’t have any more space. Since I was going to be building on a vertical surface now I thought why not take it one step further and add some Lego plates to the ceiling as well.
I evaluated a couple of the walls and corners and ended up choosing one that I felt offered the best design possibilities.
The key to making the system removable in the future is to not apply Liquid Nails around the areas where the screws are, this way if you want to remove the system you can break the Lego plates off the MDF support boards and then just unscrew the MDF boards from the wall. Once each section was done I used 2×4 Lego bricks to align each plate and make sure they were the exact distance apart, so you could seamlessly build from one plate to another. I lasted all of about 37 seconds before I had my bins of Lego in front of me and was building away exploring the different surfaces and things I could do.


My house was unfortunately built over 60 years ago, so I’ll cut it some slack for being off an eighth inch here and there. The colourful bricks, minifigures and accessories inspire students and stimulate their imagination and creative thinking.A The LEGO Build To Express kit represents a genuinely creative teaching aid that enables everybody to communicate as equals in a motivational and non-judgmental teaching environment. Thousands of girls and their mothers worldwide participated in intensive research that validated the desire for more beauty, realistic details, accessories, interior building, and role play opportunities in LEGO offering.
When the girls realized that there were no accessories for them to play with along with the LEGOS, they would loose interest. I do believe LEGO play can boost a kid's creativity by forcing them to create something of their own and use their imagination. Being a mother of 2 in the city has its challenges but I’ve grown to absolutely love city life and what it has to offer. While a standard corner would suit this project just fine I had a small area in one corner that jutted out and offered a couple of extra surfaces to work from.
This is an important step, because if you didn’t align the plates before the Liquid Nails dried you would not have the correct alignment to build across plates.
I love listening to community suggestions and opinions so that we can make your time on BrickUltra the best! Why couldn’t I just get some Lego plates and stick them to the wall and build on the wall, seems like that could be pretty cool way to do it. I thought that by having both a vertical and inverted surface to build on it would change things up a bit and offer the chance to do things I had not done before, plus it was just more space that was sitting there going unused, so why not.
I toyed around with this idea in my head a little bit and eventually decided that if I was going to build a permanent Lego area on the wall I wanted it to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. I spent some time tinkering around in my head what I wanted the layout to look like before I finally came to a decision. I ended up choosing the blue plates since I thought they offered a nice contrast to my wall color, though the green probably would have been just fine too.
Just in case I ever sell the house and some crazy non-Lego loving person moves in; they can always take it down. I had saved up a birthdays and Christmases worth of Lego gift cards and took off to my local Lego store to buy the plates.
