Tips for Organizing the Kids’ Room

  • Before buying or having a toy storage box made, make an inventory of your children’s things. They could help you look over their toys, art materials, and other stuff so they could decide what to keep and what to give away. Once they know what they are keeping, it will be easier to get the storage they need in the correct quantity.
  • If your children can already express what they want, involve them in shopping for their toy storage box. You might be surprised at how insightful they can be since they are the ones who will put their things away in their play room. For instance, they might want to have a special compartment for a favorite toy. In addition, if their toy storage box is to their liking, they might be more likely to use it.
  • Have more than one kind of toy storage box. Some types are better at storing specific things than others. For example, a cubby style storage box is better for stowing books away while a bin in a free standing storage unit is better for crayons and art materials. By having different options for stowing things away, your children’s play room will be neater and more organized.
  • It is never really too early to start the kids on keeping their surrounding neat. Little kids can be taught to pack away before bed time, even if they do it badly at first. However sloppy their packing away is, learning how to do it early will teach them to be neat and organized as they grow up.
  • If you’re using a chest toy storage box, make sure you get one of those safety springs that prevent heavy lids from slamming shut. Doing so may save little fingers from getting caught and little kids from getting trapped.
  • Create compartments that helps keep sets together. Shoe boxes are great for this. Toy cars belong together, the xylophone and sticks together, train set in one box, Barbie clothes in another, and so on and so forth. Keeping organized this way helps kids put away toys before pulling others out to play — it’s a great plan for staying ahead of the mess.
  • Whether it is with a sharpie or an electronic label maker, labelling will be your new best friend. Label every compartment and every shelf so that your kids will know where to return his things.
  • Organize from the bottom-up. Most frequently used toys and books should be at your child’s eye level — which is usually at the lower shelves — and those that are used only once in a while can be higher up.
