It has been a few months since we have been using our LEGO organization system. The jury is in and we are loving it! The great part about LEGOS is how many different ways you can organize them.
There really isn't a wrong way!
We got back from our East Coast road trip and the boys scored the mother load in new LEGOS...Uncle David & Uncle J's collection! A collection that was literally collecting dust at my parent's house.
We will borrow them until new cousins are big enough to use them. :-)
We decided to sort the LEGOS into the containers that are in the boy's room.
It was really fun to spend time with the boys sorting and discovering all of the new pieces.
The likelihood of the pieces staying separated for very long is slim to none with our two year old sharing the same space. The nice part about these bins is that they hold all of the pieces regardless of if they are sorted or not. Plus, as the boys get bigger this system will continue to work great (the pieces might even stay separated.)
I stopped mid-way and asked our oldest son..."Should we just keep them all together instead of going through the work of sorting them?" He replied with a smile, "No let's separate them because then it is easier to find pieces!"
It was like we were playing with them...and mommy was having a lot of fun. :-)
The great part is that even with all of the additional pieces these containers and labels are so easy to switch up. The black & grey container was too full so we shifted things around and put those in one of the bigger bottom bins. We also separated the green and yellow since there were now enough to each go in their own bin.
Sorted by color or not these bins are great to stack up and go!
Are you a sorter or an all-in-one-bin kind of person...there really isn't a wrong way, right?
