Do you love to have building materials as a free time or center activity from time to time? So many students LOVE to have freedom to just explore and build.
The super nice crew at K’Nex sent me over a couple of their building sets to my second grader’s delight. He LOVES K’Nex! These two sets are the K’Nex Turbo Jet 2-in-1 Building Set and the K’Nex Revinn’ Racecar 2-in-1 Building Set. Both very fun!
Then, of course the issue becomes storing all the pieces, right? And the instructions.
Some students like to build a specific set, while some like to build their own creation. So I don’t like to store the pieces in sets myself. I prefer to have the pieces sorted by size or color to make it easy to free play or to build from the instruction manuals – either way equally fun!
I organize the pieces in these handy multi-drawer plastic towers.
I seriously would be lost without my plastic storage drawer carts.
And then store the instruction manuals in a binder with page protectors.
The best of both worlds!
How do you store your small building set pieces? We would love to hear your ideas in the comment below as well!
