If you’re a parent, then you know how challenging can be keeping track of your children’s toy collection. Even if you have a room dedicated to storing their toys, they somehow still end up scattered all around the house. It can be overwhelming, trying to keep track of all your child’s toys. Try these easy storage ideas to help keep children’s toys organized.
Add Baskets to Your Bookshelf
Bookshelves aren’t limited to just storing books. If you add storage baskets to the shelves, they can be a great way to organize toys. Adding labels to your baskets can help your child put away their toys neatly while keeping them sorted. Eventually, as your child gets older, you can remove the baskets, and transform it back into a bookshelf!
Rotate Your Child’s Toys
One of the best ways to declutter your toy room is by going through your child’s toys and deciding what toys they are currently playing with. Just because your child owns many toys does not mean that they all need to be in the playroom. Invest in a toy chest that you can sleekly store in any room and rotate your child’s toys every few weeks. Rotating their toys is the perfect opportunity to re-introduce toys that your child may have forgotten about, limiting the need to purchase new toys to add to their collection.
Store Toys Within Furniture
Another creative way to store your child’s toys is through your furniture. If you own an ottoman or a cushioned chest, you can also use it as a toy chest. It’s a great solution because you can hide your toys in the seat and use the top for decorative items. This kind of storage is an excellent addition to any bedroom, living room, or mudroom.
Make Use of Your Toys
If you own a dollhouse, store all your dolls within the home, so all pieces are stored together. If your child has a play kitchen, store all the kitchen accessories within the accessible compartments. This is a convenient way to make some space in your room while keeping all like items together.
