Legos — they’re the toy we love to hate. They’re an awesome toy because they’re timeless, inspire creativity, and help develop spatial skills as kids follow the building directions. And around here, all the kids and even my husband love to play Legos which means it is an activity that can keep everyone involved and happy – always a good thing.
But the mess that comes along with them has been an ongoing problem around here . . . until now! My son has this box that used to be full of Lego instructions. They were all a jumble and getting torn to pieces, so it was time to find a new solution.
I went out and bought a bunch of plastic pencil pouches, the ones that go into a 3 ring binder. The real important part here is that they are clear and easy to open so you can see what’s inside and have easy access. We put each booklet of instructions (or multiple booklets if they all came with the same Lego set) in its own pouch and now he can easily find what he needs and is keeping them from getting destroyed at the same time.
I think we’ve also conquered the “Legos all over the floor” problem, but that will have to come in a later post.
