An Organized Approach to Creating, Playing, and Displaying Lego Sets
If you have a child between the ages of four and fourteen, chances are you have a whole lot of Legos at home. And chances are just as good that you’ve spent your share of time corralling those Legos that seem to multiply by the dozens while not so successfully avoiding the pinching pain of stepping on one in the dark.
So how do you keep those pesky little Legos from traveling across the house and how do you keep them contained in one area without disrupting your child’s creativity?
With a few guidelines and a little bit of planning and organization, you can have an easily accessible Lego construction zone and display area in no time.
The first step is to find a good location where Legos can be built. A hard surface is necessary for good construction so a child’s play table or game table could be designated as a Lego construction zone. Good lighting is also a must in order to find the right piece for the project at hand.
Another tip is to have the construction table located in a spot where there is room for additional Lego play around the floor and near a display shelf or bookcase where finished masterpieces can reside.
After choosing the right location, and a good Lego-building table, you will want to round up all stray Lego pieces. These can be organized in a few ways:
If you really like order and your child does too, then you might want to sort the pieces by color in their own separate clear plastic bins.
Another equally effective option is to throw all the spare Legos in one larger bin. Having an additional bin for Lego men and accessories makes finding the right man that much easier. The bin should be light enough for your child to carry or pull off a bottom shelf and onto the floor.
This leads you to your next step – the display bookcase or shelf.
Ideally, the shelf depth will hold your new Lego bins. Placing a larger bin on a lower shelf will make it easier for your child to pull the bin out. If you have sorted the Legos by color and have multiple bins, then you will want a larger bookcase or multiple shelves to have room for displaying and storing. Adequate shelf space is a must after a Lego model has been constructed and it rightfully deserves a place of honor!
A lot of the finished models are small enough that you could fit many of them on one shelf. Don’t forget to display the masterpieces that your child has constructed all on their own too. While putting finished models on a shelf allows for easy accessibility for playtime or rebuilding, it also helps in preventing them from breaking apart.
Now that you’ve got the Legos organized and on display, it’s time to get to work building new creations. And you’ve got the perfect spot to do that with your designated Lego table.
Taking care to put stray Legos back in their appropriate bins and displaying the finished ones will keep you from the midnight Lego-stomp…
Now if only you can find someone to dust around each Lego on the shelf, you’ll be in good shape!
Thats it. Happy shopping and remember to have fun!
