Easy Way to Store & Organize LEGOs by Color

If you have LEGO bricks, you likely have storage issues…they are everywhere!

We have made a LEGO table {or three, in my case}, created a LEGO play mat and shown our LEGO closet storage system.

But as moms with tons of LEGOs in the house, we know that not everything works for every kid or every family.

LEGO Brick Storage for Play

My preschooler especially enjoys sorting the LEGOs by color.  While his brother builds, he makes piles.  Time to use that gift and find a new system to try and contain all the tiny landmines pieces.

We used a shoe storage bag! <—affiliate link

I did not realize just HOW many LEGO bricks we had until we tried this new system.  We still have a small bucket filled with pieces off on the side, but now my older kids (who care about things like matching colors) can find the piece they are looking for without a complete bin search.

How to Organize LEGOs by Color

Each pocket is devoted to a color or type of piece.  Because it is clear, it is easy to see what is inside.

I think their favorite slot is the one with all the mix-matched and arm-missing lego minifigures.  The characters are their favorites.
