Building brick storage is a problem that has eluded parents for years... and it will continue to do so! We are here to help! We are constantly experimenting with new ways to use Peel 'n Stick Baseplates to help declutter and create innovative + affordable building brick play areas. In this post, we will walk you through how to create a building brick storage tower that is compatible with LEGO, DUPLO and Mega Bloks!!

Materials Needed:

  • 3 x Creative QT Peel 'n Stick Baseplates (we used grey 10" x 10", but visit our website for the full range of colors!)
  • 3 x plastic storage drawers (we got ours from Walmart, $7.99 per drawer, but you can also find them in stores like Target and Michaels in various sizes and colors). Note: it makes life easier if you get drawers with a top surface a little larger than 10" x 10" as then you do not need to cut the baseplates.
  • Selection of building bricks (we used LEGO, DUPLO and Mega Bloks)

It's as easy as Peel, Stick, PLAY!

This really couldn't be any easier. Start by filling your drawers with your building bricks of choice, then line up your drawers and baseplates.

Peel off the red backing and stick the baseplate in the middle of the top surface of each drawer. If you want an exact middle position, you can always measure it up.

It is a good idea to place your hand underneath the top of the storage drawer and apply some resistance during the sticking process.

That's it! No glue, no mess!

All that's left to do is decide which order you are going to stack them in, and invite the kids in to get creating!!

What's so good about this storage tower? We think one huge advantage is that kids of different ages can have their building bricks stored together, but then have their own building surface to play on. Separating the drawers gives three different building stations and the baseplates are compatible with all major building brick brands!

Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
