After seeing all the fabulous organisational challenges going on this month around blogland (links to follow) I was feeling inspired to improve how we stored his trains. So yesterday I had half an hour to kill before school pickup and was passing poundstretcher so I decided to pop in.
I was pleased to find these brightly coloured boxes 3 for £5
I bought 6 but think I will probably pop back for 3 more on the weekend. Sam and I sat down yesterday afternoon and decided how to divide them up. We decided on:
* buildings 1
* buildings 2
* straight brown track
* curved brown track
* blue track/ grey road
* trains & trucks
I was planning on taking photos to help him remember what went in each box but he is remembering really well so I don't think that is necessary. They stack well, are small enough for him to carry by himself and I no longer have messy piles of track to trip me up! He looks happy with it too doesn't he!
