Teaching kids how to organize their toys and actually put things away when they’re done is a huge life lesson that requires a parent’s patience.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to find a simple toy box with a lid. Everything goes in and the lid closes to hide any mess. Just make sure to find a lid with child-safe latches so it doesn’t come falling down on little fingers.
However, if you have lots of Legos and other building toys, using drawers dedicated to just those building materials is a great idea. It’s the idea of grouping like things together and then your child doesn’t have to spend precious time digging the Legos out of the toy box.
If you use drawers or baskets to store your toys and books, then get in the practice of labeling each of these containers. A two-year-old may not be able to read the word Lego right now but they will get used to seeing the word and eventually will recognize the word and learn how to sound it out.
