Lego, a small word that conjures up many feelings.
Those of fond memories of playing with Lego; introducing your children Lego;
and stepping on those darn pieces of the stuff.
With March/Spring Break having just happened many of us would like to NOT see some Lego for a while.
Children and adults play/creative different items with Lego and it requires devising a system for both storage and use whether a serious aficionado or casual user.
Even on our professional organizers chat site there has been a real discussion about the organization of Lego(s).
We discovered that there were as many different ideas for storage as there were organizers and users of all ages. . We all strive to find the solution that fits for the client/user. Most young users even guided us as to how the wanted the Lego stored.
Several of these ideas can also be applied to other toys such as hold Barbies, Polly pockets, Little People and as many others as you can this of organizing.
Here are many ideas with most ideas provided by the kids (of all ages) themselves.
The all in one SWOOP bag, collects everything at once. Easy Lego pickup.
The swoop bag can also be used as a play area.
Or as Julie from coffeewithjulie.ca reminds me, there is a local company that makes amazing bags called My Stow-N-Tow.
The over the door “shoe holder” turned Lego holder.
This clear over the door shoe organizer can enables the user to see the colours in at a moments glance and easy to put away as well.
The lego table using an Ikea Lack side table and a Lego mat as the base.
A binder for those that keep the instruction booklets.
Another Lego table using two sets of three drawer bins and a laminate top with Lego mats.
A basic drawer organizer
A Wall of Lego
A Lego House made with cubes.
Some suggested a blanket box underneath the bed, using a drawer on casters.
And for the older users some ideas for around the home.
A kitchen counter – a great use for when the kids outgrow them
