Wondering how to declutter all those completed LEGO sets? These clever LEGO display ideas will show off your child’s creations, get them off the floor, and provide attractive storage as well!
It’s the sound every parent of a LEGO-loving child fears above all others.
CRASH. Then what sounds like hail hitting the wood floor and rolling under the refrigerator.
Followed quickly by a horrifying, high-pitched wail.
Then, the dreaded “But I didn’t mean to!” that will lead to twenty minutes of tears and sibling arguments.
Building is the best part.
For my seven-year-old son, building LEGO sets is the best part; it’s a rare day that he actually plays with them once he’s spent hours creating them.
But for his five-year-old little sister? There’s nothing quite like pretending to be Rey while flying around her brother’s latest Star Wars LEGO set.
Inevitably, she breaks it and he loses his LEGO-loving mind.
Although we have a good system for organizing extra LEGO bricks, we’ve yet to implement any LEGO display ideas that will keep my son’s precious creations away from his little sister.
But after Santa delivered more LEGO sets this Christmas, something’s gotta be done.Get all those LEGO sets off the floor with these clever LEGO display ideas that will show off your kid's creations.Click To Tweet
