21 Ideas for Organizing & Storing Lego

Lego is such an awesome toy and activity, great for all ages – children and adults alike!   But it can very quickly take over your home!

I love that my kids love Lego! It is a fantastic educational toy and activity, and it keeps our kids entertained for hours.  It is great for their fine motor skills, and I bet a lot of architects got the initial idea to go into architecture because of it!

But those bricks and pieces can get everywhere in your home!  How many of you have trodden on a piece of Lego? (you won’t forget doing that!!).  How many of you have accidentally vacuumed up a piece?  How many of you have found those pieces in places in your home where it just shouldn’t go?! (I once found a piece of Lego in the washing machine!).

One of the biggest home storage and organization successes can be found in getting your kids Lego organized once and for all!  So here are some of the best ideas and suggestions I have come across for organizing your kids Lego bricks (and hopefully keeping them organized!).
