Tips on organizing with kids!

  • View it from your child’s point of view! The easier to organize the better.
  • Don’t make things out of their reach unless of course, you want to constantly be asked “Mommy, can you get that for me.”
  • Baskets and bins are great for toys.
  • Use appropriate sized containers to fit your needs. Plastic shoe boxes are awesome for Barbie accessories or hot wheels.
  • Make picking up a part of your daily routine! That way you don’t start the next day with more toys that get piled on the top of the mess from the previous day.

I also truly believe if we make it fun and easy for our kids to organize their toys it will become second nature. I know I like my craft storage much better when it is organized and pretty to look at.

Here are some of the solutions we used to use in my daughter’s room. 

We used an over-the-door shoe holder for barbies. It worked great!

We stored books and all kinds of random toys in bins and cubbies.

My daughter also loved to play dress-up when she was younger and had a ton of dress-up outfits. We stored them in a metal trash can. It makes it easy to toss in the mess and close the lid on it.

Great ideas! We use a pocket organizer on the back of my daughter’s door for her Barbies too (and stuffed animals). Thanks for sharing!

Great list of storage solutions, Melissa! When my kids were little, plastic storage bins were the norm as they collected Barbie and her plethora of accessories, Polly Pocket, Legos, Star Wars, etc. I cannot believe how quickly the little stuff accumulates and it is nice to be able to have a place to store the pieces!
