We go through a lot of batteries. With little ones and all their many blinking, talking, walking toys, you need to keep a stack of batteries on hand lest you have some cranky kids. But the thing is, all those used batteries need to end up somewhere.
Energizer® EcoAdvanced is the world’s first AA battery made with 4% recycled batteries. That’s right, you can power your most critical devices with guilt free energy! Not only are they made of recycled material, but Energizer®’s new EcoAdvancedâ„¢ AA and AAA batteries are their highest performing, most responsible, longest-lasting alkaline batteries. Thus, by using longer lasting and reliable batteries, consumers use fewer batteries, create less waste, and have less impact on the planet.
We picked up a pack of Energizer® EcoAdvancedâ„¢ AA batteries on our recent trip to Walmart. Because not only do we go through a lot of batteries, but we also go through a lot of toys, many of which my kids have since outgrown or have pieces and parts everywhere. And I’m in the mood to reuse and repurpose all those many LEGOs into a quick and easy DIY LEGO Clock!
You can find clock mechanisms for about $4 at Walmart, as well. Then, making our DIY LEGO Clock was actually really simple. The hardest part was punching a hole in the base LEGO piece just the right size for the mechanism to fit through. We then continued to build our LEGO Clock until we were happy with the result.
Never meant to be a stagnant wall fixture, the fun thing about this clock is that it’s creative. Since it’s all made with LEGOs, take it apart and connect the pieces in different patterns!
Though if your kids are still learning how to tell time, you might want to make sure that you still place the LEGOs in a circular clock pattern so it’s easier. What time is it? It’s LEGO time!
Then, just add a battery and it’s a functional toy that the kids can then hang in their room!
