Their toys tend to spread throughout your home and make it difficult to create a clean and organized space. To help you with this dilemma we at All American Self Storage in San Mateo have come up with some creative toy storage solutions for you to try in your home.

 

Pencil Pouches for Puzzles

If your child loves to put together and take apart puzzles you know how difficult it is to keep all of the pieces organized and in one place. Using pencil pouches for each puzzle is a great way to keep all of the pieces together and organized.

 

Shoe Organizer for Small Toys

Over the door hanging shoe storage is a great organizing tool to keep those smaller action figures and/or dolls up and out of the way. Hang the storage in a way that your children can easily reach their toys to play with and then put away.

 

Wooden Crates

Wooden crates that you can buy at any craft or home goods store are a great way to store books and toys. These are easily customizable to fit the décor of your child’s bedroom. You can even add wheels or handles for ease of use for you and your children.

Using recycled pasta sauce jars or even peanut butter jars are a great way to hold smaller toys and crafting supplies. You can decorating and label the jars so your child can know which items go where.

 

Laundry Hampers for Larger Toys
