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. [easyazon_link identifier=”B00CQGTH00″ locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]Plastic shoe boxes[/easyazon_link] 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 use in my daughter’s room. 

We use an [easyazon_link identifier=”B000HM5V0A” locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]over-the-door shoe holder[/easyazon_link] for barbies. It works great!

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

My daughter also loves to play dress up and has a lot of dress up outfits. We store them in a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00489H8R2″ locale=”US” tag=”thgisli03-20″]metal trash can[/easyazon_link]. It makes it easy to toss in the mess and close the lid on it.

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!
