I know I wasn’t the only one with this problem. My son LOVES his wooden puzzles, but we didn’t have a good way to store them. Up until now, they’ve had their own box, and we just dump out all the pieces into the bottom of the box, and then stack the puzzles on top. Which means we have to sort pieces everytime we want to play.
So, I started looking online for some puzzle storage. I found this option:
(Amazon) But I don’t want to pay $30.
And then I saw this one:
(Amazon) Only $11. Much better. But it looks oddly like this:
And I’ve got no less than 3 of these in my house. This one fell out of the cabinet under the sink the other day, and hadn’t been jammed back in yet.
But it needed a little tweaking. Some of the puzzles were too thick. And the rack things were tilted so the puzzles didn’t sit right.
So a little easy bending and I had this:
And now, this!
And just because I can, I’m going to include some pictures of what happened in the 2 minutes it took me to bend those racks. I had set for this “photo shoot” in the dining room, and my sweet Adam decided it was time to “hide.”
Love that boy! Even if he comes with hard to store toys!
