Welcome, busy parents! We know your time is precious, so let’s dive into some straightforward ways to get your playroom in order.
The goal of a playroom is simple: to make play easy for your kids. When children can easily access toys that spark their imagination and creativity, everyone’s happier. But when the room is chaotic, it’s not so easy to play.
Here’s the best way to keep your playroom organized: Keep the number of toys in check. Not only does this make for better playtime, but it also makes clean-up a breeze. Start by going through the toys, books, games, and art supplies. Remove items that are broken, no longer used, or no longer age-appropriate.
I recommend doing this decluttering every few months. It ensures that the toys in the playroom are just right for your kids. If they’ve lost interest in a toy, you can store it away for a while. And if there’s a toy you don’t like, don’t hesitate to let it go!
If you come across broken toys or ones with missing pieces, it’s best to toss them out. For toys your kids still enjoy, consider replacing them at holidays or birthdays.
When sorting through your items, think about whether they’re suitable for donation. Broken or incomplete toys shouldn’t be donated; they should be disposed of.
To help your kids find what they want to play with, organize toys into categories like building blocks, stuffed animals, art supplies, and board games. It’s an easy way to create order.
When sorting, keep the categories broad, especially for younger children. Kids’ interests change, and broader categories make it easier for you to adapt as needed.
Kids love to see their toys. Using clear containers is a fantastic idea. Place the toys you want them to play with at the front since those are usually the ones they’ll choose anyway. Clear containers also simplify clean-up; your kids can see where each toy belongs.
Kids, like adults, need to know where things go. Labels with pictures or words help children understand where items belong and encourage them to put things away. If you have pre-readers, use pictures to make it easier for them.
Consider using business card holders for toy labels. They’re easy to change when your kids’ interests evolve.
Divide the playroom into zones based on activities, like a reading nook, an art station, or a building area. This keeps similar toys in the same place and gives each child their own space to play.
Changing out some toys from time to time keeps playtime exciting and reduces clutter. Rotate toys based on your children’s interests and age.
Once your playroom is organized, teach your kids to clean up after themselves. This way, you won’t be the only one maintaining the order. Use fun activities like setting a timer or playing music to make cleanup enjoyable.
Plan regular playroom cleanups, whether weekly or monthly, to prevent clutter from building up. It’ll make the task feel less overwhelming.
