Today I want to introduce you to Jana of Kermette’s Korner, who shared with me how she keeps her puzzles organized. Here is what she has to say:
I have four boys and puzzle boxes never last. They also think they have to do more than one at a time, which gets confusing. I put the puzzles together with my kids and then when we were done I wrote the same letter on the back of each piece. Then I cut out the picture from the box and put all of it in a zipper gallon size bag. That way the kids can zip it up too. I have taken a whole shelf of puzzles and condensed it to two large buckets with room to grow. When pieces get left out it is really easy to find where they go, because they are all marked.
I love this idea and have actually used it myself to organize the puzzles at the church so I know it works well. The boxes always seemed to get stepped on and squished anyway. Also what a terrific space saving idea as well. Be sure to head on over to read Jana’s post to see how the puzzle bins fit into her lovely organized toy closet! Those clear bins are the best, I really do love them!
Thanks for sharing Jana!
