If you’re like any other parent, you might be slightly annoyed with the number of toys lying on your floor at the moment. There are several things you can do to help kids learn how to organize their toys on their own with limited assistance from you. Check out these five tips to help your children organize their toys.
#1. Set a Timer
In case you forgot, kids aren’t born to sit and organize for hours. Set a timer and let the kids get busy. A timer is great because the kids know that once the timer goes off, they are good to go. Adults should even set timers for organizing and cleaning, it helps you stay focused on the task at hand.
#2. Color Coding
I think color coding a toy room is pure genius. For example: All cars go in the red tote, you can even put a red dot on the bottom of all of the cars to signify that the cars go in the red bin. You could even color code the toys to coincide with who it belongs to. Place all girl toys in a pink bin, all boy toys in a blue bin, and all gender neutral toys in a yellow bin.
