Got kids? Let’s face it, organizing your home can be hard especially when you have kids! Here are 6 ideas that may help your mother’s day, and everyday, go a little smoother.
Visual Labels for Toy Bins
Using images for your toy bins allows for more organization while giving kids a chance to take ownership in where their toys go. Bonus – have them color in the image label.
Stuffed Animal Zoo Pen
I love this idea. Instead of having stuffed animals strewn about the house, create a petting zoo area. Gates and crates are perfect for this. This way the stuffies are contained and visually available to your children. You can also make a rule that all the animals must be returned to the zoo at night.
Create a Snack Zone
In your fridge, pantry, or both, create an easy to reach snack area with all their healthy favorites. Keep loose snacks and drinks contained in clear bins. This hack is helpful for teaching independence.
Over-The-Door Storage System for art and school items
Add an over-the-door storage system to any door in the kids’ playroom or bedroom. This system can keep all those loose school supplies contained. Bonus – it’s helpful for replenishing backpacks as the school year goes on. This can be an over the door shoe holder or an Elfa door rack from the Container store.
Artwork Gallery Wall
Art projects can pile up quick, but the fridge only has so much real estate! Designate a wall in the playroom or family area to show off their work. Use a clothesline with small clips to hang everything from. It’ll keep things organized and your kids will love it.
Create a Mobile Bathtime Cart
So many things included at bath time! Pick up a small cart on wheels. Fill each level with your necessary supplies and store nearby. When bath time comes around, wheel it out and you’ve got everything you need in arms reach.
Hope those help and have a Happy Mother’s Day! You are enough and you have enough and I’m glad we’ve had this post.
