LEGO Play Mats

Love this idea, a combined play mat and toy storage bag in one! You lay it out play then when you are finished, it’s easy to clean up. The drawstring safely tucks into an internal pocket when in use or back into the bag for storage.

We love this Build and Store Toy Unit by HelloHome. It features two removable shelves so your child can remove the shelves, build their creations and slide them back into the unit for display.

Each reversible shelf features a building plate on one side for play and display, while on the reverse it is smooth on the reverse for displaying books and toys.

There’s also a large pull out storage drawer (28L capacity) and carry handles to move from room to room.

Strictly speaking, there’s no LEGO storage on this weekend project, to turn an old coffee table into a LEGO play table, but the idea was so cool, we had to include. You’ll find the details and instructions over on Sweet Paper Treats.

Mum Brenda didn’t like the idea of the building plates becoming a permanent part of the table so she came up with an ingenious solution allowing her son to move the building plates around if he wished, or even removing them altogether to use the table for other play things.

LEGO Organiser Cubes Set

This is a nifty idea – it’s a set of nesting cubes that fit inside each other and store flat when not in use. Each cube has a clear EVA window to easily see what’s inside and the three pieces fit together or work individually.
