It’s clearly no secret that I like to be organized. And lately when I have been in the choo choo room (aka the playroom), I get super annoyed when I look at the lego table (*) and I see piles of legos all mixed up. Like how is that even fun? There is no where to build and how can you even find anything? Who knows. I finally found some bins I liked at Target (I bought 3 sets of 3 and stacked them) and went to work. L was super into helping me sort his legos by colors, which I loved. I mixed the duplos with the regular legos because I even I think that it is too much to sort them both ways! I put the grey in with the black, but other than that every other lego color has it’s own bin (**).
And yeah, I am aware that the second L and his friends get in this room, my organization system will explode all over the room. Who cares? I can go back up there and resort them! It doesn’t take a genius to separate legos. Oddly enough, I find it very relaxing.
Tell me, how do you store your legos or other toys with small pieces? Do you like it? Does it work?
(*) We turned the train table (the table got to be too small – we have a huge set-up on the floor) into a lego table by putting lego boards down in it for building.
(**) In case you ever do this with different sized bins, I should tell you we had the most red, blue and black / grey legos.
