The playroom is probably the messiest place in your home. Stop letting it become a constant source of stress by following these helpful tips:
Regularly purge old, unwanted toys
When it comes to toy room organization, simplicity rules. It’s calming and easy to maintain. “If the toy room stresses you out, then it will stress the kids out — so keep it simple and decluttered. Go through the toy room every change of season to get rid of old, broken items that they no longer play with. Getting in the habit of regularly decluttering will save you time, space and a lot of headaches,” says Michelle Morton, mom of three. Source: SheKnows
Create rotation bins
Does your child play with only a small number of toys, most of the time? Create rotation bins to get the most use out of all of your child’s toys. Have your child divide his toys into several different storage bins, and keep only one bin out at a time. When he starts to get bored with the toys he is playing with, put them away and bring out another bin. Your child will end up playing with all of his toys, and having only one bin out at a time will keep toy messes to a minimum. Source: FamilyEducation
Teach your children to store their toys away after playing
The key to eliminating clutter in the playroom is to stay on top of it on a daily basis. Make cleaning up the playroom a game.
This can also go for cleaning any room in your house.
At the end of each day, set a timer for five minutes. Help your children put everything they’ve been playing with back in the appropriate place. As they get older, have them do it themselves while you supervise.
Once your children no longer need a playroom, the habits you’ve helped them establish will carry over to their bedrooms and ultimately to their homes. Source: TheSpruce
