Walmart carries little tubs for .97 cents each....so off we went to stock up!
Might I say, this task is not for the faint of heart, and it takes some work!! We found that the more people involved made a seemingly daunting task more feasible.
Each tub contains a color or lego theme. For instance, we have a wheel tub, a people tub, a vehicle tub, etc. It doesn't eliminate all of the frustrations of not being able to find certain pieces, but it has made creating much simpler and more enjoyable having a specific home for each one.
I enjoyed making the shelves out of pallet wood I had accumulated in the garage. You know me and my pallet love. It was an easy option for a quick project that ultimately solved a huge problem of tubs stacked on a desk leaving no place to create.
Organizing the legos in itself was a task, but I guarantee it is well worth it! Our children play legos for hours every day, and they now never seem to get frustrated looking for most pieces when they belong in a certain tub.
So, if your kids rooms are overcome with these colorful blocks, run to Walmart, stock up on some bins, and start sorting away. Make it fun!
