When it comes to organizing toys, my biggest suggestion is to display them. Keep them out of the closet and out of a big bin. Source
Large totes and bins dont work because kids want to see what they have. They will dig to the bottom of said large bin for that perfect, right this moment toy. The disarray will stay on the floor while the playing continues.
Showcase your childs toys on the wall in the playroom or bedroom.
Get creative with the organizing. Small tables are great for art projects. These can usually be picked up at local thrift stores. Add a coat of paint to match the decor and you have an instant work station!
Use shelves and containers to keep items on display but corralled. Think function then go cute and fancy!
And lastly, ask your children to pare down their toys, especially around their birthday and Christmas. This will help keep the toys to a manageable level.
How do you organize your childrens toys?
Until next time...
