Your kid’s rooms are that one area of the house you can never seem to get organized. With so many toys and little pieces, there never seems to be a good place for them. And they seem to multiply, sometimes right before your eyes. It’s time to work on organizing your kids’ rooms!
Tips for Organizing Your Kids’ Rooms
While organizing, be sure to declutter as you go, throwing out broken toys and making a donation pile for things that your child doesn’t play with anymore.
Get Your Kids Rooms Organized! Here’s how.
Organize Outfits for the Week. Hang a sweater organizer in your child’s closet to help them figure out what to wear for the week. Label each bin with a day of the week then, over the weekend, your child can layout the clothes they want to wear the next week and put everything they need for in the bin. Be sure they include socks, underwear, belts, and shoes. When they’re getting ready for school, they don’t have to dig through the closet or a pile of clothes on the floor to figure out what to wear.
Under the Bed. The space under the bed is a great place for easy storage that your child can access without help. Get an under the bed storage bin on wheels and place your child’s favorite, most used toys in it. This will keep those toys out of site and off the floor, but allow your child to access them whenever they want.
Legos. Legos seem to have a life of their own so they need their own category. Getting them put away means no more stepping on them with bare feet! Use a plastic storage container with built-in compartments or drawers to keep them organized. Divide them by colors, shapes, or special pieces, whatever makes the most sense to your child so they can put them away.
Artwork. Your kids will feel special if they see their artistic talents hanging on the wall. Hang empty picture frames in your child’s bedroom. When they come home from school with a new drawing, hang it in the picture frame so they can see their work displayed and be proud of it.
Label. Labeling makes everything easier to find and easier to put away. Help your child be more independent in putting their things away by labeling toy containers, bookshelves, and baskets. If your child isn’t reading yet, label with pictures. Help them put their clothes away too by labeling their dresser drawers to show what items go in each drawer.
Hang It Up. Hang a shoe organizer on the back of the closet door for storing loose items like cars, small dolls, and craft supplies.
Stuffed Animals. If your child loves stuffed animals, their bed has probably been taken over with them. Give them a home of their own by hanging baskets and getting them off the floor and bed. Just be sure to hang them low on the wall so your kids can easily access them and can put things away on their own.
A half day spent organizing your kids’rooms will save you hours of time later trying to find things and always picking up. A well-organized room will also help your child be more independent and clean up on their own.
