Along with all the Lego’s, you also get the instruction manuals. In our home, the manuals are almost as appreciated as the Lego itself! They’re read, studied, brought everywhere, and in the end often forgotten somewhere or torn apart.
Quite often baby brother is the guilty one because the Lego manuals are so much fun to slide on and walk all over when they’re all over your big brother’s bedroom floor!
I’ve been wanting to get the Lego instruction manuals organized for the longest time now because honestly, they’re driving me CRAZY.
Fortunately, Pinterest came to my rescue one evening. I saw this tutorial on how to organize the Lego instruction manuals in plastic binders. The idea is just so simple, that it’s just genius! I was like, why didn’t I think about that ?!
HOW TO ORGANIZE LEGO INSTRUCTION MANUALS
What you’ll need:
- Ring binders (for the large instructions)
- Ring binders (for the smaller instructions)
- Clear sheet protectors (large)
- Clear sheet protectors (small)
If any of the instruction manuals are torn, fix and tape them.
Sort according to size.
If you want you can sort them by color/theme ( I just had to).
Put the manuals in the appropriate ring binder.
Lego instruction manuals organized!
I really wanted to make front covers for the binders so that my son could easily see what was inside them. I did this easily just by scanning some of the Lego manuals, edited the size, and added the text I wanted, and printed them out in the sizes needed.
You could do this in any photo editor, like Photoshop or even just in Words. Put the front covers that you made in the front of the ring binders, and you’re DONE!
And now the Lego instruction manuals that were taking over the house, are finally under control! And mom gets to keep her sanity, yay!
