Math U See Block Organizer!

I Found this awesome idea for my math u see blocks! We’ve been having some issues with our baby trying to eat the blocks, so I’m hoping that this will solve that issue. Then there’s the issue of my daughter digging and digging to find the correct block that she needs (We used to have them all jumbled up in a shoebox container). Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m all up for organization and time savers! I got the Small Craft Organizer from The Container Store, I seriously would just buy the whole store if I could LOL!

    That is perfect! I have all of ours in a tub and they barely fit, it drives me nuts. Plus, I have to dump them all out just to get the ones we need.Thanks for sharing!

    What a great idea! We currently have them in ziploc bags, in a large tub and it is so frustrating to dig for the right one. 🙂 Thanks!

    So HAPPY to see this…I haven't even read it yet but am really needing to do something w/ ours. I've been a little OCD with organizing them into the original (getting ruined) box after every time. This will help us!

    Also, does this fit the completer set AND the starter? If you happen to know that, thanks!

    MG: Yes, it fits the starter and completer set, minus a couple hundred blocks.I just recently separated them into smaller plastic containers though as I now have 2 kids doing MUS!

      I have two sets of MUS blocks. This has only one set in it right?

    I just finally bought this tonight! They fit perfectly!

    Erica, I LOVE your container idea for MUS! Quick question…when you say you have yours separated into 2 containers now…do you mean that you bought 2 of these at The Container Store? I’m trying to decide if i want to buy 2 containers from TCS or buy the big MUS box ;P. Just wanted to see if i understood you correctly 😛

    Just bought this today and it fits great with lots of room to spare. It looks like from your photo that you must have twice as many MUS manipulatives as I do??

    What a fantastic idea. Just pinned it with a note back to you.

    Do you have all the 100s blocks in the bottom? I bought this container that you have the link to,but I can not get all the 100s in. Just wondering if you got them all in or if they have changed this box.

      Hi Mackenzie,
      We don’t put the 100 blocks in the small plastic container. I kept them in a separate box.

        Hello Mrs. Erica,
        In the picture it looks like there ARE some of the 100’s blocks in the small container box. Does it fit SOME 100’s blocks in there?
        Thanks, 🙂

        • erica September 8, 2017 at 12:37 pm

          Yes, in that tackle box it can fit a few 100 blocks in the bottom 🙂
