Organizing Games and Puzzles

Organizing Games and Puzzles

Our family loves Pizza and Game Night especially in the fall when the daylight time is shorter! Nothing is worse than sitting down to a yummy pizza and setting up a game just to realize that you are missing a”few” pieces to the game… it takes the fun out of it! So let’s get these games pieces under control and while we are at it, we might as well get the cards and puzzles organized as well.

If you have a huge storage closet for games, you are so lucky!! All I would say to you is to categorize your games by age group, such as pre-school, teen or adult games. Make sure you keep adult games on the top shelf so small little hands don’t accidentally open the game and use the pieces in their Barbie House, never to be found again. Keep the pre-school games within easy reach so young children can play with them even if the family isn’t playing a game. Many times my youngest son will just make things up with the games and play by himself.

Now onto most of the rest of us that make due with what storage we have, or should I say unfortunately we don’t have! Start by simply stacking the game boards (only) together on one shelf. You could label the boards if you don’t want to turn them game side out. Then take the the small pieces and instructions to the games and place them in labeled Ziploc bags. Here is where I would buy the zipper close Ziploc bags and spend a little extra so it will be easy for everyone to open and close the bags. Now place the storage bags in a storage tote or box to keep them from falling all over the shelf. This will take up so little space that you will be shocked! If you have games that need to stay in their original boxes because the box is part of the game, it’s no big deal as you will have room left on the shelf to spare!!!

Games: Tips for everyone no matter how much room you have for games:
– Reinforce the original box with tape to keep it lasting longer
– Put all the small pieces from the board game in a Ziploc bag to avoid the scattering of these pieces if the box is accidently dropped.
– Place the board game box side by side on a shelf like books so that can easily access them and they won’t smash other games.

Puzzles: If you have more puzzles than space, cut out the picture of the puzzle and place the picture and puzzle pieces in a Ziploc bag. Store all the puzzle bags in a tote or shoe box.

Our card games get used all the time and the card box becomes, well…let’s just say it is no longer a box. I cut out the picture of the card game, take out the instructions and place the cards in a…c’mon you know what’s coming…yes a Ziploc bag!!! Again I put them in a storage tote (shoe box size) or you can even use a shoe box… whatever is handy!

These are just some simple ideas to help keep all your games, cards and puzzles together and in one “easy to find” place. Have fun playing….Maybe you can start a Pizza and Game Night in your house too!!!

In trouble

Sometimes I believe my son actually ENJOYS all the negativity his oppositional and defiant behavior brings upon him. Could that possibly be the case?
