In our home Legos provide great joy and hours of play time. My boys are little engineers and therefore they make the coolest things and create entire worlds in their room. With 3 boys and 5 sets of grandparents, we have a LOT of Legos.
How do I store our Legos? Labeled bins and large under the bed bins.
1. One for the Mars to Mission Legos.
2. Another for the “work in progress” or “completed” Lego creations. This way they can store their Lego creations safely in this large bin and not have them get broken. It also solves the “I’m working on that!” issue when it comes to clean up time.
3. I also cut up the cardboard boxes and keep the pictures of the completed Lego projects for inspiration and future Turk boy play time. I keep all of the instructions manuals and cut out cardboard pictures in it’s own little bin for easy clean up and safe keeping.
I have the Indiana Jones Legos in their own bins which we keep in Dylan’s room since he got them for his birthday.
I try to keep the Bionicles, Mission to Mars, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and other themes in their own containers. However, that doesn’t always happen. I don’t stress out about it and just try to encourage only 1 theme to be opened at a time.
Soon, we are going to convert our guest bedroom to a Star Wars bedroom for Dylan. Then Dylan will have a long shelf to hold all the finished Star Wars Lego vehicles. It will serve several purposes as a storage solution, a brag wall to show off his hard work, and decorations for the room.
