Lego Storage Ideas

Updated on March 17, 2015

For Those Of You That Know How Painful It Is To Step On Lego!

This page is for those of you that know that awful feeling of walking along minding your own business and then feeling that white hot pain that can only be the feeling of stepping on a little piece of LEGO!

Now I have had 3 children but I still think that stepping on LEGO is one of the most painful experiences in life. Sometimes I even think that the LEGO designers must be sadists and design the pieces for the most pain!

Hopefully this page can give you some help in finding ways to store your LEGO so that you don't have to experience the pain of stepping on a LEGO block ever again!

Is LEGO Taking Over Your House?
Is LEGO Taking Over Your House?

Is Your House Being Overrun With LEGO

If you too are sick and tired of your house being overrun with LEGO I can definitely sympathise.

I have 3 boys with a big age gap so I have been living with LEGO for about 20 years now. I have found LEGO in just about every nook and cranny in my house that you could possible imagine, so I fully understand your pain.

Do you find LEGO all over your house?

Or maybe a better question to ask would be “Where haven’t you found LEGO in your house?”

LEGO Storage Ideas #01

I found that these under-bed storage boxes are a great idea to keep LEGO in one place, and also to keep my kids rooms looking neat and tidy. You can use the shoe storage systems also as these are good to sort the blocks into different types.

LEGO Storage Ideas #02

Another LEGO storage solution that I tried that worked quite well was buying a kids pool.

These are great for those with really large collections of blocks, the kids can sit in the LEGO pool and be able to find all of the blocks that they need for that special construction that they are working on. It is also good to keep their work in progress together without having to take over the dining room table.

When they are finished playing for the day just slide the LEGO pool under their bed.

LEGO Storage Ideas #03

These stackable organizers are a great way to keep your LEGO collection organized

Great Ways To Clean Up Lego

One thing that I have done that works really well is use a brand new purpose bought dust-pan.

I wrote on mine using a permanent marker so that it would not be used on anything other than lego, this is really great to gather up all of the bricks when the kids are finished playing.

To make it more appealing you could get a dustpan like this one . .. . . just for LEGO

If you're lucky, your little ones will find this as exciting as playing with the Lego and be happy to help with the cleanup.

LEGO Storage Idea #05 - Mobile Storage Drawers

Although these are not the cheapest option, they are a good solution for storing your LEGO.

You can store your LEGO based on colour, and these are especially good for all those little pieces!

LEGO Storage Idea #06 - Bongo Buckets

These are a great option as they will contain the LEGO, but also lets you squeeze them into smaller shelves

Keep Their LEGO under control!

An idea to help make the LEGO clean up a bit easier is to put down a large fitted sheet, tip all the LEGO onto it.

The kids can then play with their LEGO and when they are finished you just have to pick up the sheet and tip it back into the box.

This is a great way for them to be able to find all their pieces without having to rummage through the storage box.

      Thankfully my two boys are too old for Lego now. but I can remember treading on those little blocks all the time when they were younger. It is sore.

      I use this Ikea rack and buckets. A little pricey, but it works.

      I can empathize with you though I only have two kids :-)

      Just wait for them to grow up and you can have your revenge - by gifting more LEGOS to THEIR kids :-)

      My son used to leave Lego pieces all over the place. Then, I made him put them back before he moves on to something else. But occasionally, there will still be that odd piece left here and there.

      I love the idea of using a kids pool to store legos! And the only thing worse than stepping on a lego is stepping on an earring that has the pointy side up - YIKES!
