It has been an incredibly busy month for me and my little family as both my children have had birthday's in the last fortnight. My now 5 year old requested and received a ton of Lego which is new to me as a Mum. Until he opened it all on the morning of his birthday, I hadn't actually thought about where it was all going to go.
At the risk of sounding like I need to get a life, organisation and storage is a passion of mine (or it was until I had two children, became a single Mum and now my house is like one giant playroom and I can barely remember what day it is) Anyhow, that's where the name for my little business originally came from, wanting to help people get their ducks in a row.
I am now in the process of trying to get myself organised before Christmas and a whole other influx of toys and thought I'd share some of the things I come across along the way.
First up, storage solutions for Lego!
How stunning are these wooden drawers!! I think these are my favourite of all the Lego storage ideas I have found but they do come at a price and are a little on the small side but make great desk storage for other items of course.
These coloured versions are much more affordable and larger in size. They come in so many colours including more neutral and pastel palettes. The fact that they're stackable is brilliant. You can easily add more boxes as the lego collection grows. They're also available as drawers, and you can buy colour bundles. The website these are featured on is amazing for all storage solutions, definitely check it out here.
This is the storage system I am going to go for. Totally brilliant! A drawstring bag that opens out as a playmat so you can then just scoop it all up in one. It can then go under the bed or sofa or in a drawer or basket. Play and Go have a great selection of designs to choose from which you can view here
This is great if you have a playroom or a large amount of space to fill. I have seen some stunning hacks of this unit too so you can customise it to work within your home. See below for some inspiration from @ToddleandPlay they sell a brilliant variety of stickers specifically for this unit.
I think these are such a great Lego storage solution for kids rooms. The different colour ways are perfect for different ages and the quantity of drawers make them great for separating the Lego pieces.
Lastly, under sofa storage is a must. It's such a good way to use quite a lot of dead space. I have a really low sofa but still managed to find containers to fit. You could potentially get smaller boxes to fit inside these to help with lego organisation or drawer dividers could work (always check your measurements).
I hope some of you find this helpful! There will be lots more hints and tips coming soon.
