“A place or everything and everything in its place” is a proverb. Regretfully, nearly every flat surface in your house may serve as a “place” for children’s toys. We’d like to provide some advice and solutions to help you regain control of the issue if your child’s toys have taken over and you don’t know where to begin to put things back in order. 

Ensure They Understand Your Seriousness

It is essential to keep toys organized. It teaches youngsters responsibility and the need to keep things tidy, to start. They can find what they’re seeking in an organized play area, which eliminates the aggravation of hunting for misplaced toys. Above all, having toys arranged prevents you and your friends from having to deal with the inconvenience of having to navigate a maze made of toys or, worse, stumbling over them. 

Establish Toy Zones

Putting in place the appropriate storage options can make toy organization a snap. Give a toy’s designated storage place. Arrange shelves for board books, containers for blocks, and baskets for plush animals. This keeps a jumble of toys from gathering everywhere and makes it simple for your youngster to put them away in the proper locations. 

An excellent option for storing and arranging things is an antique dresser. you enable speedy sorting, make sure you label every drawer. For things like Legos that contain several tiny parts, a small game-sized table works perfectly. Use a tablecloth below to collect any loose bits. You may use one of those over-the-door shoes to store little toys like Play-Doh cans and action figures. A pegboard with hooks to hang games, puzzles, clothes, and other stuff is something else to think about installing.

Use Labeled Bins

Invest in some robust storage containers or wicker baskets and designate the kind of toy that belongs in each one. If your children are not yet reading, use visuals instead of words. 

  • Have containers, for instance, for building toys and blocks.
  • Plush animals and dolls
  • Board books
  • Markers, stickers, crayons, etc.

To make it easier for your youngster to put things away on their own, place the bins at their level. This helps children take control of maintaining their place clean and turns cleaning up into a game.

Make Frequent Purges

Less clutter and turmoil equals fewer toys. Every month or so, go through your child’s toys and discard those that are broken or not being used. Tip: Rotate some toys by storing ones that aren’t being used right now. It restores their sense of novelty and excitement. Anything that’s in decent shape but not in use can be donated or given to a neighbor’s child. 

Engage Your Children in Life

Involving your child in the process will increase your chances of keeping games and toys in their proper places. Ask your youngster to assist you in creating the guidelines and storage options for their area. They’ll be far more inclined to assist if you collaborate with them rather than impose your will. You’re turning tidying up into a game.

Assist them in placing toys in containers according to shape or color. To make it more thrilling, turn on some music and set a timer. You’ll benefit from having everything arranged and having the opportunity to spend some quality time with each other.
