My son has lots of Legos. I love the creativity this kind of play encourages in him, but not the headache of picking all those toys up! Here is such a simple solution that everyone should know about it.
I store a large tablecloth in the bin on top of the Legos. Lay down the tablecloth and dump the bin.
My son understands he can spread out as far as the tablecloth. (Make it a sheet if you need more space.) When it’s time to pick up, grab the four corners of the cloth, dump the Legos in the bin, and there you go—all picked up!
Thanks for all the great tips you and your readers share with us! Heidi
