My kids love board games. But with all the little pieces, parts and boxes that break/rip open, board game storage and organization can be tricky!

As a professional organizer and mom, I have found some really easy, practical, and helpful tricks for board game storage that should help keep your games in tact and ready to play. And if my kiddos can handle some of these tricks, I think anyone can!

10 Practical Tricks For Board Game Storage

Trick #1: Make Velcro Baggies

When it comes to games with lots of pieces (which is pretty much every game), store all the parts in a smaller baggie for inside of the box. Then add Velcro to both the lid of the box and the baggie. Now your parts will stay put, without sliding all over the box!

Trick #2: Reinforce Edges

Games for kids can take a real hit, so I reinforce the edges with tons of Duct Tape. I make sure those corners are covered before the kids can attack it!

Trick #3: Securing Games

Wrap your board games with cheap headbands. This will hold the boxes together so you can store them standing up without losing all the parts!

Trick #4: Rolling the Dice

When you play a dice game with your kids, chances are the kids throw them everywhere (on purpose and on accident). This tip keeps control of the dice. Grab some small, clear Tupperware pieces and put the dice inside. When it’s your turn, shake the Tupperware and set the lid-side down to see your roll. It’s rolling the dice without throwing them everywhere!

Trick #5: Make Card Holders

Do your kids want to play card games, but struggle to hold them? Grab two plastic lids. Punch a hole in the middle of each. Then add a brad to hold it in place. Now you have an easy card holder for the kids!

These holders were a huge hit with the kids in my classroom when I taught!

Trick #6: Store Games in Pencil Bags

Smaller games can easily be stored in pencil bags. Put all the parts, along with directions, in the bag. Be sure to label the bag so you know what game is in there!

Trick #7: Use Portfolio Boxes

I love portfolio boxes. I use them for kids’ art supplies to board game storage and lots of other things. Just store the board game in the portfolio box, add a label, and you are set!

Trick #8: Utilize Photo Boxes

Card game boxes are challenging to store. Why not store the games in a photo storage box? They are sturdy and fit cards perfectly! As always, just add a label to the box and you are good to go!

Trick #9: Store in Large Baggies

Sometimes the easiest way to organize your board games is using large baggies! I love the gallon ones with the sliders. I think you can fit just a little bit more and they last a little longer. You can either cut the board game box and store in the baggie, or add a label, similar to these!

Trick #10: Create Standing Support

Use a lid holder to store games standing up. It is another easy option to keep the boxes tidy without losing parts! I found this one at the Dollar Tree.
