Pierce has been really into Legos since last summer (he even spent a week at Lego camp). He's been fortunate to receive some nice sets from friends and family. The most important thing about Legos is to keep the sets together and whole, and to save the instructions. Because once you lose some key pieces, it just isn't very fun anymore.
You can buy these really neat Lego storage systems, but they are very expensive and certainly not in our budget. So I came up with my own method for controlling the Lego madness. The smaller sets work well in the $1 shoebox containers from Dollar Tree. I cut up the Lego box and tape the picture of the set to the top.
And then I also tape a smaller picture to the side, since we stack the boxes in Pierce's closet. This makes it very easy to find the set you need.
