A Tip for Managing the Lego Monster

Please accept my apology if this was your idea.  I saw this tip somewhere in the last week or two and can't, for the life of me, remember where I saw it.  I can't even remember whether I saw it on the internet or in a book or newspaper.

The tip is this.  Pour all your Lego blocks out on an old bed sheet.  Tell your children that they can spread the Lego out, but it must stay on the sheet.  When it comes time to clean up you wrap the Lego in the sheet and tip it back into its storage container.  This idea would work for any kind of toy with many small parts.

I wish I had thought of this years ago.  At very least it would have saved my bare feet from painful midnight contact with stray bricks.
