10 clever ways to organize Lego

So much Lego and no idea what to do with it all? Check out these inventive ways to make their collection more manageable.

Berry baskets

Collect a bunch of those plastic pint containers berries and other produce come in. Clean them well, then arrange them inside a drawer so your little tyke can sort his pieces according to colour. Get the inspiration: hubpages.com

Hanging buckets

Install a curtain rod (or a towel bar) and hang pails from it using S-hooks. Label the pails by colour or Lego type (flats, figures, blocks), and it’ll be easy for your little one to toss her pieces into the correct pail once she’s done playing. Get the instructions: b-inspiredmama

Magnetic containers

You can mount a magnetic board to a wall or tabletop. Pick up some magnetic containers from your local arts and crafts shop and label each however you’d like. Once the kids have finished creating their masterpieces, have them fill up their containers and place the covers on before they affix them to the magnetic board. Ta-da! Off of the floor and out of the way. Get the instructions: kojo-designs.com

Bed drawer

A captain’s bed with built-in drawers is perfect for Lego storage. Use the drawer as one massive compartment for Lego bits or arrange them using containers. If you don’t have under-bed storage, use wide, shallow containers that can slide under the bed to house the pieces. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Get the instructions: danielsicolo.tumblr.com
