A Lego Storage Solution That Works

A lego storage solution that works!

My family LOVES LEGOS.

Like REALLY, REALLY, REALLY loves LEGOS!

REALLY.

The whole clan loves legos including the husband! There is so much creativity potential in these little blocks and that’s why we love them! The amount that we currently own could probably fill up our basement floor,  spread out from corner to corner. I mean, I don’t know, but at one point, we’ve had LEGOS all over the floor. I have one of the those “dumping” kids who is what I would consider stealth. This child dumps everything out and suddenly “poof” they’ve disappeared leaving a lovely mess lego time bombs all over the floor. The whole Lego “dumping ground” thing  seriously stinks for anyone walking around.

Oh the use of choice words…

Oh- and I might mention that the pain is comparable to child birth, on your feet, especially if that LEGO jumped out of no-where. And seriously people, I’ve given birth FIVE times. I’m JUST SAYING it’s comparable.

I’m assuming if you’re reading this, you already know it hurts like the dickens,and like me, you are searching for a solution. Not anymore– you have come to the right place. We have found one that has consistently worked for us.

(The solution is really simple which makes me wonder why I didn’t think of this before now!)

The steralite storage containers sit on an old desk we bought from a garage sale. We separated the LEGOS mostly by color, people parts, and accessories. We call this our “LEGO table” and for the most part it keeps the majority of the legos off the floor,  keeps the creativity at the table, and those choice words are not needed! It makes for happy creativity and happy mom. I just had to share because I know I’m not the only one that struggles with this issue!

How do you store LEGOS at your house?

What other ideas have you come up with?

Wishing you all The Luck of a Magpie!
