Storing Puzzles

I like to keep certain jigsaw puzzles in a way where they will stay together. I have found the boxes are not really good for us, as they tend to get torn and ragged over time. I use a pencil storage bag that you would put in a notebook binder. I cut out the picture of the puzzle so it fits in the bag and then write the number of parts the puzzle has. If you have a number of jigsaw puzzles, you could put them all in a binder.

If your children or grandchildren have several board puzzles, here is a great way to know which piece goes to which puzzle, when two or more are out at once. This works great in preschools also.

During my hiatus from having my own place, I had to store my puzzles that were put together. I didn't want them drawing moisture, so I stored them under a friend's guest bed.

My toddler grandson loves puzzles. We have many boxes of them - 35-55 pieces each. So the pieces don't get mixed up with other puzzles, I bag each puzzle in a zip locked baggy (sandwich size) and place it back into the puzzle box.

I get 3 laundry bags for $1 at Dollar Tree. They are perfect for storing puzzles. If the puzzle gets knocked over, the pieces remain in the bag.

To better organize my daughter's puzzles I cut the picture from the top of the box and place it along with the puzzle pieces in a ziplock bag. Now the puzzles take up a lot less space and no more squished boxes and missing pieces.

Puzzles are a big part of any preschool classroom but boxed puzzles never last an entire school year. The boxes would tear up and puzzle pieces would be lost.


Instead, I cut the picture from the lid and taped it to the front of a ziploc bag. I then placed the puzzle pieces in the bag.
