  1. Storage hacks
    Looking for a way to sort and store your LEGO® pieces? Samantha from Warwickshire shared her genius storage idea of upcycling old Pringles tubes! It’s a great way to sort your pieces by colour, and really easy too. Plus, it’s a great excuse to enjoy a tasty snack!

  2. Playing idea
    If you’ve got an old fitted sheet lying around, then you’ve got all you need for a great storage hack! Spread the sheet out for when it’s time to play, and when it’s time to pack up, simply bundle together all 4 corners to make a makeshift LEGO® bag!

  3. Dinosaur LEGO®
    This ones for all the dino lovers out there! Did you know that if you have the Dinosaur 3-in-1 set, there’s also 4 extra models available on the official LEGO® site? You could even have a go at making up your own dinosaurs too!

  4. Instructions app
    Got loads of instruction manuals lying around? One great way to save some space is by going digital with the LEGO® Building Instructions app! Simply type in the kit number or scan the QR code, and you can view the instruction manual on your phone.

  5. Marble maze
    If your little LEGO® lovers like getting creative, why not create a marble maze? It can be as big or as small as you like with all sorts of exciting twists and turns, and all you need is a marble!

  6. Bedroom ideas
    Looking to redecorate and give your kids the room of their dreams? There’s all sorts of creative and colourful bedroom ideas, from a LEGO® inspired wall to a display unit to show off all your impressive builds!

  7. Tidying scoop
    Got an old milk carton? By cutting off the bottom, you can recycle your old milk cartoon and create a scoop that’s perfect for picking up those little pieces from the floor when it comes to tidying up.

  8. Playing storage
    We all know the pain of stepping on a piece of LEGO® on the floor, but by using a wooden tray, your little ones can enjoy sprawling out on the floor without creating huge amounts of mess! You could even slide it underneath the sofa, making it super easy to carry on playing the next day.

  9. Games with LEGO®
    If you’re looking for a new way to use your LEGO® and get creative, there’s plenty of great games you can play! Try a ring toss or even tic-tac-toe, there’s all sorts of classic games you can play a LEGO® version of.

  10. LEGO® photoshoot
    If you’ve got lots of mini LEGO® characters, why not get creative one afternoon and whip out your camera? The possibilities are endless, and we bet your little ones will love creating new scenarios and even building their very own sets too. We bet you'll be impressed at this figure collection from Adam Hood from Bromsgrove!
