sorting kids toys

Help! I need help organising kids toys!

You have to wonder where all these toys come from? They appear to multiply before you have the chance to get them under control and it doesn’t stop as your kids grow older.

Birthdays and Christmas can be a huge culprit for this one. Ensuring that you have regular culling sessions will help with organising kids toys.

But on top of that there are plenty of useful storage solutions that will be your lifesaver.

1. Use jars for stationary and other small craft items

Jars keeps everything neat, are stackable and let’s be honest, they look fab too.

2. Hang a fruit basket in the bathroom for bath toys

You can hang a fruit basket off of the shower rod to create a home for colourful bath toys. The material of fruit baskets allows the water to drain out and air dry the toys.

3. Utilise a bookshelf for vehicles

Chances are if you have a little boy or girl with a love for trains, planes and cars, your home is going to be covered in them. Create a ‘garage’ for the toys by lining them up on a bookshelf.

This looks great as a decorative piece and can encourage your kids to put their vehicles back where they belong. After all, trains, planes and cars need to be garaged overnight.

4. Refashion a trundle bed into toy storage

If your kids happen to have a trundle bed, or you’re looking to upgrade their bedroom consider a trundle bed. You can use the pull out bottom portion as nifty you storage.

Simply pull out, throw the toys on and push back under. Out of sight, out of mind we say!

5. Use a soap case for playing cards 

Travel soap cases are often the perfect size for a deck of playing or Uno cards. Pop the deck in the soap case when done playing with them and stack away neatly.

This is a great way to ensure you don’t lose a card or two along the way and makes them easily transportable for family road trips or picnics.
