6 Ways to Organize Kids Toys

  • A toddler laughs while playing with a pile of construction blocks.
We all dream of the perfect playroom.

It’s a space just for toys and it’s beautiful, just like a Pottery Barn catalogue. Your toddler will go to the shelves, remove the basket full of blocks, play with them quietly, and then put them back in the right place.

If you already have a child, you know how impossible that dream is.

The reality is that you’ll need more than a catalogue to conquer all of the clutter that kids bring with them.

Toy Organizing Ideas

Whether you’re a parent or a very involved grandparent, you’ve got toys—lots of them. Here are a half dozen quick and clever ideas for keeping them organized.

DIY Peek-a-Boo Sacks

If you can sew, these darling toy bags are a clever way to keep things organized. They’re easy for little ones to handle and might even make cleaning up fun.

A Moveable Library

It doesn’t get any easier than using an old metal wagon to store books. You can easily move the books from room to room—and your little ones will enjoy the challenge of doing so.

Matchbox Car Holder

Get your child’s toy cars off the floor and onto the wall with this easy DIY project. All you need is wall-mounted magnetic strips and a screwdriver.

Over-the-Door Shoe Organizer

These shoe organizers can be a simple solution to organize dolls or stuffed animals. It’s easy to use and helps keep your child’s room organized.

Rolling Crate

If you’re crafty, this cute crate can solve a lot of problems. Use it to store toys, books, or art supplies—and easily roll it out of the way when not in use.

Practice Toy Rotation

Toy rotation is pretty much what it sounds like. Create several groupings of toys and, once every couple of weeks, swap out one collection for another. This will keep your kids occupied—and keep your house clean.

Organizing Kids Toys and StorageMart

Sometimes, no matter how creative you are with toy storage, you find that you’re still overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you have in your space.

If that sounds familiar, you should know how self storage can help. At StorageMart, you can rent a unit as small as 25 square feet or so—or up to the size of a garage.
