I don’t know about you but my child seems to have more toys than I ever did as a child. If you need to cut down on the amount of toys check out my post on Play Room Clean Out Tips. After you’ve got things cleaned out you’ll want to follow these Play Room Organization Ideas to keep the chaos level to a minimum.
Have A Place For Everything
The most important thing to keep your play room organized is having a place for everything. Also, make it easy for your child (and their friends) to know where everything goes.

Use labels with both words and pictures to show what goes in each bin.
Tip: The labels don’t stick to the bins, I tried, they fall right off. I ended up using some twine and sticking two labels together.
Group Similar Items Together
I like to group similar items together. It’s easier for kids to find and put away things. We’ve got bins for Small Superheroes, Large Superheroes, Tools, Cars, Star Wars, Legos, Superhero Costumes.
The playroom has a set of shelves on each side. On the right side we keep games, puzzles and a basket for miscellaneous toys.
Create A Space To Display Artwork
On the back side of the shelves I’ve attached clips for B to display his latest artwork.
On the left side we keep B’s crayons, markers, pencils, coloring books, paper, etc.
Create A Homework Caddy
I’ve also made him a homework caddy with all the supplies he needs to do his homework. When it’s time to do homework he can just bring the caddy to the table and have everything he needs to do homework: pencils, scissors, glue and a ruler.
