Toy organization is a constant struggle. Kids with a passion for puzzles love to sort pieces and tuck each one in the right spot. While parents love kids’ patience, we’re not so fond of stepping on the little knobs or hunting down missing pieces, and nearly every house has wobbly stack of puzzles threatening to slide right off the shelf.
That’s why we can’t wait to try this genius (and easy!) DIY solution from Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew. She corrals loose pieces in a simple pocket attached to the back of the board. The puzzles can be stacked up, or stood on end in a bin and the pieces are always be close at hand. Smart!
What you’ll need:
• Fleece, felt or denim
• Velcro strips
• Hot glue gun
