Lego blocks are one of the most common types of toys that parents ask about organizing. There are so many types of Legos, and parents want to encourage creativity in their children, but they don’t want to be stepping on Lego pieces regularly!
There are several ways to organize and store Legos, and it depends on how many you own, and how your children play with them. If you have children who like to play with the sets, you can keep the sets in the original boxes, or place each set with instructions into a clear lidded plastic bin. Choose a bin size large enough to hold the entire set. All of these bins can then be labeled, stacked and stored on open shelving or inside a cabinet or closet.
For younger children, or those that are fine with separating the Lego sets, the pieces can be stored in many ways. Here are some storage options for lose Lego pieces.
Stackable lidded plastic bins in a variety of sizes can work well to separate and store different types of Lego pieces.
You may want to use a plastic drawer system and have separate drawers for different types of pieces or colors of pieces. These Lego storage drawers are another cute option.
Removable Plastic Drawers and Bins
A system like the Ikea Trofast toy storage series is versatile because all drawers can be removed, and they come in a variety of depths and sizes to customize based on your collection.
Some children like using a portable tool box to hold their Legos in place.
These plastic stacking AkroBins, meant for screws, small tools or crafts, can work well for holding Legos.
Floor Activity Bags
Portable floor mat activity bags meant for Legos, like these Swoop Bags, are a wonderful way to keep the blocks contained.
