If any of your children own LEGO bricks, then you know how difficult it can be to store all of those tiny little pieces. While some kits may come with boxes or a bag to store the leftover LEGO bricks in, you could still end up with dozens of extra pieces with no home.
Storing your children’s LEGO bricks doesn’t have to be a pain, and you don’t have to worry about stepping on LEGO bricks anymore.

8. LEGO Minifigure Storage
Clean & Scentsible has a great way to store and display your child’s collection of minifigures. This uses a large picture frame and 4×2 LEGO bricks to create a fun solution that can be changed up as much as your child wants.
9. LEGO Head Can Storage
If you love those cute LEGO head storage cans but don’t want to buy your own, Organized 31 has an easy tutorial for turning small containers into cute storage solutions.
A tip: start with an Argo cornstarch container so you don’t have to paint the actual container yellow! There are bigger and smaller versions available so you can choose the one that is right for your needs.
10. LEGO Travel Box
All for the Boys has a fun way for your child to bring their LEGO bricks on the go and repurpose an old box – turn it into a travel box!
Any sort of sliding lid box would work – just paint and decorate the box how you want, then glue a base plate to the lid of the box. Easy!
11. Over the Door LEGO Storage
Kids Activities Blog has an easy – and cheap! – way to maximize your space and keep LEGO bricks sorted by color, size, function, or whatever you want.

Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls has an awesome idea for showing off your kids’ extra special minifigures – display them in a wooden crate!
The minifigures stand on flat bricks, so there’s not much danger of them randomly falling on. Plus, your child can easily switch out individual items at any time.
