This week, we are organizing our kids toys and/or our hobbies (sewing, planning, crafts, home gym, etc).
Welcome to week 12 of the Home Organization Challenge. I know things are stressful right now, but we must try to keep our lives as normal as possible. Our homes still need cleaned, the food still needs cooked, and our kids still need a schedule. We must keep it together. As the saying goes, “This too shall pass”.
This week, we are organizing our kids toys and/or our hobbies (sewing, planning, crafts, home gym, etc). So far, we’ve organized the laundry room, home office, kitchen, pantry, master closet, master bedroom, master bathroom, living room, dining room, linen closet, and kids closets. It’s time to have a little fun and create an organized toy or hobby space in your home. I’m sure you can get the kids to help out this week.
If you’re new to the challenge, print out the schedule & checklists and begin on the current week. Free Challenge Kit
My kids no longer play with toys, so this post is here simply to inspire you. Our “toys” are in our home gym. My family loves to exercise and that’s where we spend a lot of our free time. This is what our toy room looked like, when our kids were smaller.
I always kept their toys organized in these bins (from Target). The shelf is from Ikea. I labeled the bins clearly, so there wasn’t any confusion as to where things needed to go.
They picked up after themselves and it always stayed fairly clean. This is a great organizing solution families who have children in this stage of their lives.
Now, our “toy” area is our home gym. Here’s a peek into the space. You can see details on this blog post.
Here are few more blog posts that will inspire you to get toys organized.
