Lego storage containers can be expensive, but you can make your own decorative Lego storage head for free! This project takes an old plastic container that you already have at home and transforms it into a toy bin for your kids' bricks. The homemade toy container looks like the popular toy face and all you have to do is draw it on (don't worry the designs are easy). Your kids are sure to love their new Lego head containers, and the containers are small enough to be easily portable, so your kids can take them anywhere.

This is a great re-purpose for those starch containers. I know I will have to try my hand with washable markers before I commit to the permanent sharpie. I can not draw not even a little bit.

For a small Lego head the lowest price I found was $14.99. The Lego brand is shaped different but with a yellow starch container that is empty, you can not beat free for a similar project. I am happy I found this link.
