A COOL LEGO IDEA FOR KIDS

Does your kid love Legos? Does your kid have trouble holding cards when playing card games?  This very simple DIY Lego playing card holder is easy to build. It is perfect for children that can play a game of cards but have a hard time holding and arranging their cards.

Our little hands card holder project was inspired by the website Confidence Meets Parenting who has 25 awesome Lego building ideas for kids.  Their Lego card holder did not have any DIY instructions. 

Our Lego building idea for the card holder is similar with a few exceptions: 1) the second row of playing cards is easier to see because the cards are slightly higher than the first row.   2) The top of the higher wall has sloped Lego bricks. 

You may want to check out our Lego Building, Lego Games and Awesome Fun Stuff page for more cool Lego ideas, challenges, books and more.

Lego Playing Card Holder - Cool Lego Idea

how to build a lego card holder

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 x 2 bricks, 2 x 4 bricks or 2 x whatever length you have
  • 1 x 2 bricks, 1 x 4 bricks, or 1 x whatever length you have
  • 2 - 8 x 16 plates
  • 2 - 4 x 8 plates
  • 1 - 6 x 6 plate
  • 2 x 4 slope 45-degree bricks

These are the Lego bricks we used to make this card holder but you can use whatever bricks you have available. If you want the card holder longer, simply add another Lego plate.

INSTRUCTIONS for a simple DIY lego playing card holder

STEP 1:

Lego Playing Card Holder - Supplies Gather all the necessary Lego bricks and plates.

STEP 2:

Lego Playing Card Holder - Secure PlatesAbove photo is the back of the card holder base


To make the study card holder base,  use two 8 x 16 plates.  Place the two short sides together and attach a 6 x 6 plate across the center of the 8 x16 plates on the bottom to hold them together.  So the base of the cardholder will not wobble and will sit level, add a 4 x 8 Lego plate on each side.

STEP 3: 

Time to begin building the walls which will hold the cards in place.  The first wall will be built on studs 7 and 8.  Studs 7 and 8 are the last two studs on the base plates.

Lego Playing Card Holder - Back Wall Build a wall using 2 x whatever Lego brick lengths you have, to complete a wall three bricks high. Refer to the above photo.

STEP 4:

Lego Playing Card Holder - Back Wall with White Risers On stud 6, make a single row of 1 x whatever length, to complete this single row.  The purpose of this riser row of Lego bricks is for the second row of cards to be in ascending height for easy viewing.

STEP 5:

Lego Playing Card Holder - Middle Wall Continue by building a second row of Lego bricks on studs 4 and 5.  For this wall of bricks use  2 x whatever length you have, to complete a wall two bricks high.

STEP 6:

Lego Playing Card Holder - Front Wall Finally, skip the next stud, which is stud 3.

On the first two studs, build a wall using 2 x whatever length of bricks you have, to complete a wall one brick high.

Time to play cards!  Little hands will not have trouble holding cards anymore. Lego Playing Card Holder - Lego Building Idea
