This year I wanted my girls to hand out fun, non-candy Valentines. With Pinterest being so full of inspiration there was no shortage of cute Valentine’s day ideas. When I saw Lego rings I knew that they would be the perfect non-candy Valentine.
At JoAnns I was unable to find plain adjustable rings. I checked both the jewelry and children’s sections. Luckily I came across a ring making kit that was perfect. The Creativity For Kids 10 OptiArt Ringswas priced at $4.99 at JoAnn craft store. It was on special sale for 25% off so I paid $3.75 per kit of ten and bought two. I stopped at the Dollar Tree for super glue. Take note….super glue is not the right adhesive for this project so you can skip that step. 🙂
Material Required to Make Lego Rings
How to Make Lego rings
1. Sand the ring (or the Lego) so that something has a rough surface. This will help the glue adhere.
2. Adhere the Lego to the ring.y, right?
3. Allow to dry.
When I realized the Super Glue and Hot Glue were not the best option for this craft I asked our Facebook Fans what adhesive was most likely to work. I compiled the list and headed to Walmart. I bought some E6000 Clear Multi-Purpose Adhesive Glue that was $2.97. This worked MUCH BETTER than super glue! Now, I am not saying it is perfect but it was better. Since the intended recipient of these rings is kindergarten students I can see them lasting a few days. This accessory is not meant to be a forever piece since it is plastic glued to metal after all!
Thank you too ALL of our Facebook friends who helped me find a great solution to my last minute dilemma! Like the bubbles in the picture? That was truly an original idea that you can read about on our Bubbles Valentine’s Day post.
