We were in the middle of a Lego epidemic in our house. It seemed as if Legos were having Legos. Ever time I turned the vacuum on in M's room I would hear that horrible rattling sound that let me know that I had sucked up yet another Lego piece. Mom fail!
See Legos are "it" for M. He loves them like nothing else and he is wonderful at putting them together. My sweet boy who cannot focus most of the time to save his life can sit for hours to finish the most complicated Lego sets. M also just loves putting together extra pieces to make his own creations.
Take a part, put together and repeat! This was the vicious cycle that we were in and I needed to do something before I lost it!
So I decided to sort all of M's Legos by color and store them in tupperware. (I bought tupperware at Target and the Dollar Store.) I really thought it would be a simple job but it truly took a ton of time. Like it took a couple of days! But I really think that it was worth it and so does M. He can find pieces faster and clean up is easier for all involved.
Here is to order in our homes no matter where you live!
