Whether you're three or 33, Lego and LEGO Duplo sets can provide hours of fun. Similar to activities such as colouring and crafts,LEGO is a brilliant mindfulness activity. However, despite the hours of fun it gives us, keeping it stored away neatly can be a challenge, which is why you'll need some clever LEGO storage ideas for your collection.

If your Pinterest board is full of clever and rather satisfying storage solutions, then we think you'll love these LEGO storage ideas. From organising LEGO based on colour and size to storage that will look great in the home, we've got you covered.

Let's start with those random accessories and extras that don't quite fit into a clear category. You know, the weird heads and wigs and flowers that seem to appear down the side of the sofa or in your shoes, whereas a drawer divider made for a slim drawer is ideal for these little random pieces, and it keeps everything safe in their place.

Here, we have selected the best lego storage storage ideas for you:

2) Lego basket
