Lego storage ideas that’ll keep your child’s room tidy, whilst ensuring their Lego is still easily accessible. These ideas come courtesy of The Organised Housewife team & community.
My son loved Lego when he was younger, but storing it in a way that was tidy and conducive to play was no easy feat. When we bough a new Lego storage unit for my son’s birthday I shared it with you all, and in return you shared your Lego storage ideas with me. Since then, many more genius Lego storage ideas have been born, and I am excited to now share all your fantastic ideas as well as a few new ones I’ve discovered too!

Think Vertically! This Lego tape sticks to the walls, so you can literally leave lego creations hanging off the walls, which is a great way to free up your table and floor space.
