Some call me mad others a nutcase my husband certainly thinks so i have spent hours sorting Lego. Little OB has a massed a lot from Christmas and his birthday. It all started with a free boat on a newspaper last year. He was only 2 1/2 but he took to it really well. He has never put toys in his mouth so I wasn't worried about him eating it he is quite sensible like his daddy. Does that make me unsensible? He is now 3 1/2 and he helps build the models and then distroys them to make his own creations. They are usually long boats with wheels... Lots of them and bilma's. I need to explain these, as far as we can work out they are water squirting guns. Anything long can be a bilma sticks, golf clubs, hosepipes etc, the sticking up grey bit is a bilma.
I am not a control freak nor do I have OCD but I don't like our house being messy it's too small and I have had enough of tripping over toys and hurting my feet on Lego so it has been my aim to sort out some storage. I have searched the web for ideas and found this on I heart organising.
I don't have a link for this one but thought it was rather clever
And this on not a stepford wife.
I then spent hours sorting into colours
Ikea seemed the obvious choice for boxes so off we went in search off trofast.
