Ok, any mom of boys can feel the pain of lego. Don't get me wrong, we love lego, sometimes I just don't like them very much! My boys have a massive collection and while we've tried several organizing solutions we've never found anything that worked for my boys. Until now.
Legos are amazing, timeless and ignite the creativity and imagination that is so important in play. They also happen to multiply exponentially and little baby legos appear out of nowhere, pointy side up for you to step on, vacuum up or fish out of the babies mouth.
Cleaning up all those pieces has been our biggest issue. The tears start rolling when its time because they "just KNOW" all their creations will be smashed in the lego bucket, never to be found again. That means we had lego creations EVERYWHERE. Serious people, they were taking over my life.
Here are the things we needed in our Lego setup...
1. Large area to play and build that's off the floor
2. Someplace to display all of the creations
3. A place to store all the lego pieces
Our Solution? We found the PAHL desk shelf at Ikea and it was perfect! I bought 2, one for each boy. I could even add a third to the desk if we need it in the future. I love not having to put up shelves and that the boys can easily reach all their pieces while its still just out of reach for the baby! We used this long desktop and legs from Ikea as well!
Ikea to the rescue once again!
