LEGO Table and Storage Ideas

Like most family households with primary school aged children, we are overflowing with LEGO.

We have Disney LEGO, Minecraft LEGO, LEGO Friends and even Star Wars LEGO (but this is mainly my husband’s collection).

When you start buying LEGO for your family, there are a few considerations to make which will help you decide on where it’s stored and how it’s played with.

  1. Will you keep all the individual sets together?
  2. Where will you store the ‘how-to-build’ manuals?
  3. Where will your kids store their LEGO?
  4. Where will the kids play with their LEGO?
  5. Will you dismantle or keep sets on display?

So many questions… and maybe you’ve never thought about it… until you’re at your wits end with LEGO from one side of your lounge room to the other.

We originally had an IKEA bookcase, where we displayed sets once made and kept spare pieces in boxes. It was messy and felt like a disjointed organisation system.

I went on Pinterest to get some LEGO Storage ideas.

I loved this table with cut out trays to keep LEGO pieces on hand for building by A little bit of this, A little bit of that.

The aim of the coffee table was to allow for play for all the siblings.

At Christmas, we received a number of LEGO Friends Heartlake City Amusement Pier. We had different sets which included games and a separate rollercoaster.

The divided storage containers hold spare LEGO pieces, separated into colours. We used another container to hold all the manuals.
