Toys contribute a great deal to how fun our children’s childhood will be. Kids love their toys, they love to get new ones. They love to play with them, and share with friends but that enthusiasm sadly does not extend to keeping those toys out of the way for you – the parents.
Seeing as your children are going to have toys for as long as they are children, why not take out a little time to make this “toy ownership era” more convenient for both you and them! Nice idea right?
We have three super easy and effortless ways you can do this:
- Build A Toy Shelf
This can also double as a trick to get them to clean up after play time. By creating their very own “zone” for toys, you make them directly responsible for arranging and organising their toys thus developing their organisational skills. If you want to take it a step further, you can label the shelves after different items as seen in the picture below:
- Labeled Toy Boxed
Make a rule in your house for your children to keep every toy after usage in its respective labeled box. The boxes make it super easy and fast for them to throw the toys in after play time. Try to make the lids of the boxes bright and colourful so they don’t think it too drab to house their precious toys. Another tip to help make this organising easier is to paste stickers of the content of each box on the sides of the box so it is more fun. For example, a box with their favourite dolls and plush toys can have stickers of characters such as Barbie, Baby Alive Dolls, Dogs, etc.
- Repurpose Laundry Baskets
This is another efficient way to keep the toys packed and arranged when they are not in use, it is also a fantastic idea because it doesn’t require buying or constructing something new. All you need to do is dedicate and label some old laundry baskets to toy storage for the kids.
So there you have it! 3 super easy ways to organise your kids toys and get them out of the way. You know that with the toys organised, incidents like stepping on them, damaging them or your child getting injured become reduced.
So it’s a win-win, yes?
