I write about many subjects typically surrounding my kids, including fundraising, gifts for children, vacations, and Boy Scouts.
Best ways to display legos in your home
My kids and I have a lot of legos. What we lack is a good way to display the legos, so each of my kids have done it a different way. The best thing about lego sets, is that there is no wrong way to display them. In fact, there are so many arrangements and places to put them, sometimes you forget where they are. Other times, they just become too much and take over an air hockey table
Typically, though, each of my kids has their favorite type of lego sets. For example, my son loves Star Wars Legos and Indiana Jones Legos, it must be the things that fly. One daughter loves Harry Potter legos and Disney Legos, whereas another daughter loves City legos. Finally, I like the tall ships from Pirates of the Caribbean, although, I'm still waiting to get one, or maybe one of those big Millennium Falcons.
All pictures are my own, just don't tell my daughters I went into their rooms.
Top of the Desk for this Daughter's Legos
My daughter loves City legos. She displays them on her top desk shelf. It's getting a little crowded now, but it looks good. She tries to keep the sets together, but its hard when there is limited space. Not sure what she is going to do with the next set she gets.

Cube Shelving is Great for Displaying Lego
My oldest daughter, loves disney legos. She has taken to displaying them in a cube shelving system. Luckily, most of the legos fit, except for the Harry Potter set, which is mine.
Lego Display on Shelves
Lego on an Air Hockey Table
Since we have so many sets, most of the legos end up on the air hockey table as they are being put together. It's easy to have them spread out as you are trying to find pieces which have all been thrown into a big bucket. The worst is that the Star Wars legos are pretty much the same color, so its hard trying to find just the right piece or shade of grey.

Lego Minifigure Display Case
This is something I wish I had when I was a kid. How many times do you wish you had a place to store your lego minifigures? Here you can display over 100 minifigs at one time, or remove a shelf and display some larger ones.
