A child’s bedroom can literally turn into an organization nightmare. The child’s bedroom quickly becomes cluttered with toys, school things, clothes, books, etc. Don’t let the thought of organizing this area overwhelm you, there are several options available to you. Not only can you organize your child’s bedroom it can also be fun! Yes fun. Invest in some bright colored storage containers or they even make cartoon characters on storage units. These can also add some decoration to your child’s room.
One thing to keep in mind when it comes to storage units for your child’s bedroom is you’ll want something sturdy and durable. If you want to store something out of sight you can always go with the under the bed storage boxes. These aren’t necessarily super durable but they will be out of sight which should help prevent your child from messing with it. It’s best to keep in mind the age of your child also when it comes to organizing their room. Once you’ve decided on what will work best let them help you choose the colors/style.
After you’ve purchased the new storage units that you will be using now would be the time to rearrange the bedroom. This can be fun for your child if you let them help decide how they would like to have things.
For whatever reason, children usually have a hard time putting dirty laundry into the hamper. A simple solution to this problem is to put a basketball hoop (one of the toy ones that have suction cups on them so they’ll suction to any clear surfaced wall without damaging it) above an open hamper. Turn it into something fun, hence the basketball hoop, and suddenly they’ll have no problem putting their dirty laundry into the hamper.
Organizing the room is only the first step. Next you’ll have to find ways that will help keep your kids motivated to keep it organized. Try turning it into a contest to see who can keep their room the neatest for the longest amount of time. A points system can also work wonders – let them earn points for every day they clean their room, make their bed, etc. After earning so many points (you’ll have to decide what that is) let them get a treat. It’s all about finding what works best for you and your family.
