My son has LOTS of Legos. I love the creativity this kind of play encourages in him, but not the headache of picking up all those toys! So, I store a large tablecloth in the bin on top of the Legos.
When he wants to play, I just lay the tablecloth down and dump the bin of Legos on top. My son understands he can spread out as far as the tablecloth goes.
When it’s time to pick up, all I have to do is 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
