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 Lego Instructions Organizing Book 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!!!!

    >Oh darn it! I just throw those things away. I hate having all the paper everywhere. From now on I will have to save them.
    Also Jamielynn the lady behind I heart nap time pinned your kitchen printables on Pinterest! WhooHoo , that blog is huge :)

  • Margo

    >This is a great idea! I think my boys' instructions are in box in the basement! :(

  • Nicole

    >Love! I will definately use this idea for our Lego instructions – thanks!

    >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.

  • Stephanie’s Mommy Brain

    >Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant!!

  • Jen

    >I've been thinking about doing this very same thing! Yours looks so neat and organized – you have inspired me to get it done! Thanks!

  • Andrea Landaker

    >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. :-)

  • Big D and Me

    >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.

  • Jenny, aka "Jengerbread"

    >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!

  • Natasha

    >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,

    >Great idea! That'll save my boys and me a lot of frustration.

  • Charissa

    >Fun idea! My son needed this several years ago before we lost all his instructions in his messy room. Now I just tell him to make a square building (you don't need instructions for that).

    >Such a wonderful idea! Needed to hear and see this project:) I have 2 boys who are lego crazy and I keep their lego booklets in a bucket, but placing them in a binder sounds much more suitable! Thank you for sharing. I have a cooking blog, stop by anytime. Have a fabulous day!

    >This is so simple but so needed! We have literally dozens of Lego sets and our twin boys usually shred the instruction manuals after assembling the blocks (a trait we're hoping is just a "phase" of their 7-year-old-ness.) Great tutorial. We'll definitely be tackling this one WITH them in the next few weeks!

  • Kim @ One Project Closer

    >Oh, and we'd love to have you link it up at our {very first} DIY party:
