Lego Instructions Organizing Book

If your Christmas was anything like ours than you probably have Lego’s everywhere! When we first started collecting Lego’s I tried keeping all of their instructions in a Manila envelope taped to the top of their Lego bin, but they were getting destroyed. I decided to use a Binder, Binder Dividers, and Clear Heavyweight Page Protectors to create a simple and easy way to sort the instruction books.

 

I typed up the Lego sets available, so the sets could be easily sorted. I  put one of the cute Lego Bingo cards from Big D & Me as the cover.

In each section I added page protectors. Each protector holds 1 Lego instruction packet. That way they can just flip until they see the one they want, rather than pull a bunch out and sort through them.

My boys love that they can find them easily and I love that I don’t hear “where is my….” all of the time! Now when we get new Lego sets my boys go and put the instructions where they go without me even asking! YEA!!!!

    >Great idea! My hubby has all his lego sets from when he was a boy. I am so glad he was organized & kept everything together. You certainly wouldn't see this in my childhood legos =-) Thanks for linking up to TGIF! Have a great week,
    Beth =-)

    >What a great idea! My boys' are all just stashed in a box somewhere. This way would save so much space and be much more easily accessible!

    >Thanks for linking to my lego bingo printable game! I was so excited to see it when I came and visited your site. Our lego books are in a big white bin with the legos but this idea looks much more organized.

    >We keep ours in our filing cabinet (I think there's too many for a binder). Yours looks way cute, though. 🙂 But, you can always get them online if you've thrown them away. 🙂

    >My husband told me that his parents used a laminator and laminated them, then used those binder rings to keep them all together. He loved that and we are doig it for our kiddos. Just another thought.
