I have love/hate relationship with legos. They are creative and imaginative and Henry’s favorite toy, so of course we have a million around. But, they are so much plastic and I struggle with storage for them! They take up a lot of space and never manage to get fully picked up at the end of the day. I can’t tell you how terrible they are to step on in the middle of the night on my way to the bathroom. Do they have to have so many sharp edges??
Today I’m sharing an idea to make lego storage fun and also attractive. I saw something like this once in a home tour from a magazine months ago, I think it might have been an old Domino? I thought it was so brilliant that I had to try something similar myself.

The sorting was actually really fun. It took maybe 30 minutes and it’s a great thing that kids can help with as well. Preschool and young grade school kids love sorting. It’s a healthy brain activity for them so win win!
We placed them in different shaped plastic vases (just bought from Target). Henry found the sorted legos immediately and made me my own White House and then an all red plane. I think kids like a little order too!
Any brilliant ideas around attractive lego storage? I’d love to hear your ideas!
