From toys and books to arts and crafts, our children have a lot of things that can make a serious mess in our homes. Create storage solutions for your little ones to keep their things and your household neat and tidy.
For the children who aren’t quite at reading level, consider organizing their toys by types and take a picture of what is in the bin on the outside. They may not be able to read the word but the picture on it’s own will show them where the toys need to go.
Put Arts and Crafts on Display
Arts and crafts supplies can be tedious things to keep clean. Why not show off the crayons and markers by putting them in ingredient canisters? Kids can easily organize on their own and use the materials when they need them.
Do you have empty jam or pickle jars? Find fun plastic figurines and glue them on top of the lid. Once the lib is dry, paint them your kids’ favourite colours for a fun and inventive, arts and crafts storage solution.
So Many Books
No matter what age we are, we always have an abundance of books. This passion grew when we were young and received books for every special occasion and occasions that weren’t even special. Why not put your children’s books on display, similar to a bookstore or library. This way kids have constant access to their favourite books and you can put new ones on lower shelves for easy access.
Duel Purpose Ottomans
Finding storage ottomans aren’t hard things to hunt down and they’re perfect for both adults and kids. Most ottomans are equipped with space for you to hold things such as movies and blankets. You can find ottomans with playful patterns and keep them in playrooms or bedrooms to act as storage and seating.
Use Shoe Organizers
Shoe racks or shoe organizers are great for adults but have you thought about how perfect a shoe organizer would be to keep dolls lined up and arranged. Align the dolls on the first one or two rows and use the rest of the pockets to store clothes and accessories. Your little one will love their next play date.
DIY Play Tables
Play tables create new spaces for your children to play as well as keep their toys in one place. Use cubes with wheels to hold books and toys, as well as act as seating and place clear plastic bins underneath the table so you can see what’s in them.
Creating storage solutions for your little one(s) can be a fun and inventive project. Think about what colours and shapes they like and how the functionality of certain things would work in their space. Be open-minded to using different materials and label everything you can. The earlier kids learn about organization in a fun way, the sooner they will incorporate these practices into their own lives.
