My guys love Legos! Anybody else? They can create for hours. And most of it…pretty impressive I must say.
That brings us to the storage issue. I love for the creative process to be able to flow fairly unhindered. I feel badly when they get X amount of time to play and half of it is eaten up in having to dump, search and then the enormous pick up process.
It also means if we’re going to be on a Lego building spree, that one or more of my rooms may look like this for a rather lengthy period of time. That presents an issue having an 18 month old that has two missions in life—to dance and to put everything in his mouth!
I’ve been hashing out in my mind better ways to organize these little critters. So far, I haven’t settled on a cost effective option that I really love. Maybe you can help me!
Here are some options I’ve been snapping the last few months for ideas on better organization.
And another one.
Container Store has some great options.
But, these prices don’t really fit the rockin’ what ya got mantra. Plus, it’s really not the system I’m looking for to provide easy organized access for them.
I came across this one last year.

I love her color coding system, and that each boy gets a drawer of their own for special creations.
This is a work in progress. I would love to hear what you do with legos.
Let’s hear it! Soon. Before my baby swallows an Ewok.
