A while ago, our friends Michela, Matteo and Amelia gave us this gorgeous toy sack by play&go. At the beginning, I struggled to find a use for it, because the Montessori philosophy taught me that baskets and boxes for toys promote chaos, so I prefer putting few toys on display on our shelves and rotate them when I see that kids lose interest in them.
One day my hubby suggested we used the sack for our Legos, and it was a game changer! We now keep all our Legos in it and store in a dedicated box. When we want to play with Legos we lay down the sack on the carpet and open it:
- The Lego pieces are in sight and reachable which makes building much easier (and less noisy as we don’t have to dive in the box to find a piece).
- It’s very easy to tidy up, just pull the strings of the sack and you’re done!
- It actually defines the play area, so no more Legos everywhere!
If your kids love Legos as much as Oliver and Emily, these sacks are fantastic!
