Organization Tips for the Playroom

By: Sara Raffensperger, Editor,

It's a simple fact of life: kids are messy. With our Organization Tips for the Playroom, hopefully you can reduce the mess and give yourself a little bit of peace, while also teaching your children the importance of organization. You won't have to worry about your kids tripping over their toys or losing them under piles of other toys. Your kids will always know where their favorite toys and books are, because everything will have a place. You can easily learn how to organize your home with these tips and tricks!

Organization Tips for the Playroom

You can sometimes feel like you're Sisyphus, pushing the rock up the hill only to have it roll back down again for all eternity. But instead of rocks, you're picking up toys and putting them away, only for them to be pulled out and strewn across the floor the next day or even having your children follow you around and pull them out instantly. You love your children, of course, but you don't love the constant mess. Luckily for you and your sanity, we're here to help get your playroom and house organized with these quick and easy organization tips.

  1. Sort and Store by Color
    • If you have a lot of Legos or blocks, for example, you could label drawers with color names and separate everything by color. This is a great way to teach your children colors and keep everything organized.
  2. Wall Storage is Key
    • Building simple shelves and attaching them to the walls is the best way to keep things off the floor. You can build some shelves closer to the floor so your children can help put away toys and easily access their favorites.
    • You can also build a higher shelf that they can't reach if you're taking away toys as punishment.
    • Install a peg board on your walls and hang things! Attach baskets or little bins for small toys, crayons, and other little things your kids are seemingly always losing.
    • You could nail crates you found in thrift stores to the walls for some DIY shelving that will hold a lot of stuff and look really unique.
    • If all of your wall space is taken, you can make a new use for hanging planters and store things that you rarely need near the ceiling. They'll be out of the way and saving space for things your children are always reaching for.
  3. Shoe Organizers Aren't Just for Shoes
    • Shoe organizers are one of the greatest organizing inventions, possibly of all time. They're afforadable and they use empty space like the back of closet doors, thus making something else useful and saving even more space.
    • You can organize stuffed animals, dolls, trucks, craft supplies, and anything else you can think of. Everything will be really easy to find and organize, and as an added bonus, everything will be off the floor!
  4. Double Duty Storage
    • What's the point of buying two things when you can buy one thing that does both things you need? If you buy or make some storage benches and ottomans, the playroom will look clear and your children will have a cozy place to play or read. You can store books, stuffed animals, and blankets in them so your children are prepared to snuggle up with their new favorite book.
    • Storage under beds is also a great way to store toys your children are always use!
  5. Clear Storage Containers
    • Being able to see what's in the bins will drastically cut down on the mess that ensues when you can't find something. And if you organize the bin by what kind of toy goes in there (blocks, balls, stuffed animals, etc.) then you and your kids will always be able to find exactly what you need.

Let's get started organizing! Here are some DIY organization ideas to get your started on your path to a clean playroom and the peace of mind which comes when everything is in its place.
