5 Smart Storage Solutions for Kids' Puzzles

Storing Kids' Puzzles

Not only do kids' puzzle boxes often take up a lot of space, they often get smashed up and mangled to such a degree that they're both non-functional and an eyesore. No problem. I've rounded up several solutions for storing kids' puzzles that you can adapt to your specific storage needs.

1. If you're feeling super crafty, follow this tutorial from You Had Me At Bonjour to make your own vinyl pouches, shown above, customized to fit exactly what you need.

3. Use small plastic boxes and store them in a larger box. Cut out the picture from the puzzle box and attach it to top of each storage container, or pop it inside. (A Bowl Full of Lemons)
