What did we work on this week? Something I seem to have a love/hate relationship with…
As anyone with little boys knows, Lego is an inevitable part of childhood. In our house, DS2 is the Lego collector and DS1 gladly plays along whenever they decide Lego is the activity of the day. I had stashed the growing collection on a shelf in the kitchen pantry, but it was becoming an eyesore for me, especially when they took them out and played in the kitchen! After moving all my craft supplies out of the little room off the kitchen (except the cabinet seen on the right in the photo below), I decided the room would be theirs for a while (It’s actually to be a future mudroom.)! Problem was…
…it looked like this most of the time! It’s a good thing there is a door that closes!
I had DS2 sort through this mess, bagging up sets. He got the job done eventually!
I purchased some Sterilite organizers at Target and the bagged sets will go into these and labeled when I get a chance next week. The nice thing is, these organizers fit onto a simple bookshelf that we’ve had forever!
See the binder in the above photo? I organized all their instruction manuals into a binder using sheet protectors and dividers!
I put all the boxes that the sets came in quietly in the recycle bin. DS2 has held onto them for much too long and they take up a lot of room!
This is what the room looks like today:
Now I have another idea brewing for the little table and the nook it sets in! I’m thinking this little room could serve as a great homework area too! That’s a project for another week, though!
