HOW TO ORGANIZE TOYS

We have gone through and given a LOT of stuff away, but there are still toys they want to hang onto and things they play with regularly.

by Holly

I have spent the last week trying to “spring clean” my boys’ room and play room. It is quite a challenge because when I emptied the rooms into the hall to do a full room scrub-down, I was shocked at how much was packed inside!

We have gone through and given a LOT of stuff away, but there are still toys they want to hang onto and things they play with regularly.

This has prompted me to do a search for ways to keep toy clutter under control. Inspired in part by a previous post on how to organize toys.

15+ WAYS TO ORGANIZE TOYS

Tension rod bathtub storage – So smart! Use a tension rod with hanging baskets to keep all the tub toys together and ready to dry.

Toolbox treasure boxes – This is one I use in my own home. Each boy has a treasure tool box and is in charge of what is inside.

Laundry basket dresser – Yes! Yes! Yes! Drawers are so over-rated.

Dolls in a shoe organizer – Love this idea from Babble {direct link broken at the moment} to place dolls in a back-of-the-door shoe hanger.

Under bed truck park – This is genius for both storage and play. My boys would LOVE it.

Stuffed animal swing – Oh my cuteness! This adorable triple decker swing is perfect for corralling even the largest stuffed animal collection.

Garage parking lot – I adore this for keeping parking spaces in the garage for big toys and bikes.

Outdoor toddler station – Outside toys can be trouble to keep in control, but this is the perfect way to both store and play with things you NEED outside!

LEGO pencil holder – Get your 8 year old on this today.

TP roll cubbies – So smart and completely FREE.

Reclaim crates – These adorable wooden crates got wheels and a whole new toy-storing life.

Hang board games – Oh and that isn’t all…the pieces are behind them so you can still play!

Hot Wheel storage – And display! Pure genius.

Chain gang storage {affiliate} – This is a simple hanging system to clip smaller animals together and let them take up a tiny bit of space instead of a big heap!

Big truck storage – This is a really fun way to make a several level “garage” for those big rolling trucks…that I have a ton of!

Alphabet boxes – OK, this one is a bit of fantasy, but I want it NOW {stomp! stomp! stomp!}.
