No More Pulling Hair Over Little Bricks – Organize and Store Lego DIY Way

Sometimes I wonder if I am really that idle in life; at other times I wonder if I am really that thrifty.

Case in point, my latest craft expedition –  a Lego box – to organize and store Lego pieces. Why couldn’t I just buy one? Or am I such jobless that I wouldn’t mind devoting an entire evening to this?

The story goes like this –

Little B has a couple of different Lego sets. She has progressed from making one particular object from one particular set to using different sets to make a variety of objects. So every time she wants to play Lego, she wants to play with pieces from all the sets together. And every time she is done playing, I have to clean up by sorting and storing them in a couple of different ways. This storing was making me go mad!

Isn’t there an easier way to organize Lego which makes playing with it and cleaning afterwards simpler? Whether I was thrifty or idle, I had a real serious issue at hand. And yes, when you have Curious Case of Little B as your daughter, sorting Lego does becomes a “real serious issue.”

So this is what I did.

Organize and Store Lego DIY Way

Found an old packaging box.

Made segments inside it using cardboard strips from an another packaging box.

Glued strips with Fevicol and reinforced them with clear tape.

As you can see that the width of the strips is less than half of the height of the box. This is because I added another shelf to the box by combining two shoe box lids.

All the box needed now was some decoration so that Little B knows which side is up.

Now whatever my actual aim behind making this box was, I would say that I did a pretty decent job at creating it. A big high five to myself!

    […] Finally I made a Lego organiser for Little B using a cardboard box (it was better than what I had made for her in Bangalore).
