Keeping kid’s toys organized can be a difficult task. Kids have so many toys such as stuffed animals, small and large toys, games, art supplies, blocks and books. Sometimes a kid’s room is too small for the number of items that they have, and the only way to make the space neat is to organize the items. Five tips on organization for toys can help someone get started on keeping a kid’s room clean.

1. Become Minimalist

The best way to start organizing kid’s toys is to minimize what they have in the room. Kids usually have toys that they do not play with, and these items are just taking up space and creating clutter. By deleting the items that are not being used, the clutter can decrease. Take stock of the types of toys in the room. If the kids have two of the same items, give one away. If a toy is broken or pieces are missing, dispose of these items. Set up a system to keep the clutter from returning by taking steps to decrease the toys on a regular basis, and the room will be more manageable.

2. Group Items

For example, an art supply group could contain crayons, paper, markers and scissors. After sorting everything into a group, it will be time to organize the items in the room. For example, blocks will need to be in one part of the room to be easily accessible to the kids for building those fabulous structures, and art supplies would go in another area that would be close to a table or desk for easy use. The toys that are played with more often will need to be located within easy reach of the kids. This will make it easier to get to and return after playing. By organizing the toys into groups, the kids playtime will be enhanced and cleanup easier.

3. Develop A System

Creating a storage system will keep the room and toys organized. The room may need shelving, storage containers or baskets to make it easy for the kids to pick out a toy to play with. The best place for a kid’s favorite toy is at their eye level. They will be able to see what they are looking for when it is stored in a clear container or on a shelf. If their favorite toys are stored too high for them to see or reach, it will not take long for the room to become unorganized. Store the small toys in the baskets or storage boxes. For example, little cars can have their own space in a storage container, and small building blocks can be stored in a separate container. When a kid wants to play with the little cars, they only have to take out that one container to find and play with the cars. Larger baskets or large containers work well for stuffed animals, balls and other large toys, or these items can be displayed in nets attached to the corner of a room.

4. Get The Kids Involved

When a kid has a part in discarding and storing his or her toys, they will be more willing to return a toy to the appropriate spot. The kids may even have fun choosing the toys to discard to give away to someone else who may need a fun toy. It can help teach the kids about sharing and helping others.

5. Make A Routine

Encourage the kids to clean up the room each day by putting the toys, books and other items back into their designated areas. When this task is done daily after playtime, the room will be clean to start each day.

With the abundant amounts of toys kids get for birthdays or holidays throughout the year, the toys can take over the home. However, with some organizing tips, the kid’s toys can be stored neatly in their room without cluttering up the entire house. The kids will enjoy knowing where to look for their favorite toys when they want to play with them. By returning them to the appropriate area each time, the kids can always be assured of having that special toy to play with.
