The best way to organize Lego

Filed Under: kids, organization and storage, toys

LegoIf you and your kids (admit it, you play too!) have a big Lego collection then you know the frustration of digging for the right piece and never really knowing what you have and where to find things. In our house, this is one of the biggest barriers for our little guy in bringing his idea from conception to creation.

You may have tried different ways of sorting similar pieces. We've been through all sorts of bins and containers, but ultimately we end up with everything mixed together and dumped out on the floor in search of that perfect piece. I'm in favor of organizing these pieces if it will save him some frustration and save me from stepping on all the stray pieces!

Evil Mad Scientist suggests that we stack like pieces together. This keeps everything in bricks, making them easy to manage. It will take some discipline, but it's the best idea I've heard and I can tell you that we plan on giving it a try at our house. The article is full of pictures and actually illustrates how the various pieces will go together.

Take control of your Lego bin and spend your time building instead of looking for the right piece.
