This week I have been trying to find the best ways to store Lego.

When we moved back to the UK from Australia last year, I couldn’t believe how much Lego we owned! A lot of the Lego was just random pieces but there was also at least 20 constructed builds.

Since we have been back the Lego has been sitting in a very unorganised heap in a cupboard. The boys aren’t so keen to play it when it’s like this as it’s too hard to ever find the pieces they need so I recently spent some time on Pinterest looking up some ideas.

Below, I have put together the ways to store Lego that I chose to do plus some of the other great ideas I found.

20 of the best ways to store Lego.

Sort them in these Organiser boxes. I got these Stanley ones from B&Q as you can change the compartment sizes to suit your needs. You can also get them (cheaper!) from amazon here.

I got two boxes. The first I organised by piece type…

and the second I organised by colour…

I only organised the larger pieces by colour as can you imagine how hard it would be to find one of those really tiny pieces when it’s hidden among loads of other pieces of the same colour?

One last thing I love about these containers is that they can be stacked securely together…

The other way we are currently storing our lego is in one of these large lego sorting heads. We have had this for quite some time and I highly rate it however once you fill it with too much lego it stops being too effective.

It is made up of 3 levels. Once you take the lid off, the 2 inner levels can be lifted out. These 2 levels are made up of a grid with holes just big enough or the smaller pieces to sift through. This means that once you have put all your lego away into the hole at the top of the container and give the whole thing a little shake the you are left with the smaller pieces at the bottom and the bigger ones at the top.

We do love this container as it looks cute sitting on the shelf in the boys bedroom. You can also buy it as just a container, without the sorting levels. We also have one of these and you can fit absolutely loads into it. You can buy the containers here.

The next item we have we don’t use to store the lego as such (although I know some people do) but rather to use to sit on to play the lego and keep it from travelling all over the floor.

When my boys get the lego out they often like to sit on the floor to play it rather than at a table. This is great but somehow it ends up spread all over the room. This mat helps keep in all in one place.

Another feature of this mat is that when you pull the 4 corners up together and the lego pieces fall to the middle there is then a flap that can be opened to easily pour the lego into your container. You can buy these mats here.

As I mentioned, we had a lot of lego to transport from Australia to the UK and to save on space some of the smaller builds had to be taken apart. To keep all the pieces together I then put them into a large sandwich bag with their relevant instructions. The IKEA ones are great for this, you can buy them here.

Speaking of the manuals, what do you do with them once you have finished the builds? You don’t want to lose them in case you need to do some repairs or complete rebuilds like we have had to.

I have found the best way is to put them in plastic envelopes then into an A4 folder.
