Here’s a great DIY storage system for Lego. It’s a space saver and it can easily fold away once the kids – small and big, are done playing.
This DIY table with an organizer is indeed the perfect place for your kids to play Lego! It helps keep the pieces together which helps prevent the pain that comes from stepping on one of those pieces, especially in the middle of the night! Your children will definitely enjoy the wide surface they have for building their Lego creations. But what we love most about this DIY project is that you can set the desk at a height that’s perfectly comfortable for your kids whether they are sitting or kneeling.
Unless your kids have a mountain of Lego pieces to keep, you can also use this table to store and display other small toys that can also cause accidents when left on the floor.
But hey, this isn’t just for kids! If you like how it looks, you can also build one for your arts and crafts studio… or for your own Lego creations!
