    Posted: 29 Jan 2012 at 4:53pm
DS' is a Lego fanatic and loves to make his own inventive creations. They are taking over his room, and I would love to have something in his room to display them for him, but something he can easily take them down to play with them. Anyone have any ideas?

I've been thinking about the same sort of thing.  My ds is getting quite the collection and we are going to need some sort of storage/play area.  I was thinking about using the train table, but not sure he will want to give up his trains yet.  I was also thinking about a bookshelf maybe, or some wall mounted shelves that he can reach.  I'll be watching this thread for more ideas.

I pinned this idea on pinterest.  I want to make something like that using some base plates and a cheap shelf.

I also have something like this my sister made the kids for Christmas.  It has white dashes along the outer edge where the green is though, so it has a little road.  We don't have an Ikea, but she round that little black table @ Target for $15.  The kids love it and it's small enough to store out of the way when we're not using it.


This is a really cute display idea if you have some fun people.

I know it depends on the child, but my ds a all about the process of creating and building, but he wants to be able to recreate things.  So we take a lot of pictures.  I print his favorites for him and he has a 3 ring binder that holds the photos as well as official Lego kit directions

We ended up using a 50% off coupon for a local unfinished furniture place and buying a wooden table. He can store his loose pieces in a bin underneath the table, build on top of it, and even have room to display some of his creations! Thanks for all the great ideas, mamas!!

It took me a bit to really visualize what you were talking about, but I love this idea!!!!
