Children can easily get overwhelmed by the mess in their rooms. Clutter can effect your child’s state of mind & prevent them from settling down.
- Consider Printing up Colorful Labels with words or pictures for Toy Drawers
- Clean out the space under your child’s bed
- Rubbermaid Bins on Wheels or with Drawers work wonders for organizing children’s toys
- Sometimes children have a difficult time remembering where their belongings go: to remedy this, take several photographs of the room and print them on a piece of paper. Hang it on the back of their door. When they need a reminder of where an item belongs, they can look at the photo.
- Have Limited space? Install a Pegboard on 1 wall. Children love to hang things up, arranging stuffed animals, hats, clothing, treasures, etc. The cost is very low, under $15.
- Do you have Toys that end up in the middle of your front lawn? A rubbermaid tub with several holes drilled in the bottom works wonders for keeping kids toys off the lawn and in 1 place
- Re-Organize the Bookshelf
- Label a Box “Donations” and ask your children to sort through their toys & give up those that they don’t play with very often.
- If you can’t stand the thought of giving away those expensive toys, box up half of them and put them in the garage or attic for 30 days. Then, rotate your children’s toys. They will be more inclined to play with the toys that they don’t have access to every day. They’ll also be less inclined to ask for new toys.
