Organizing your kid’s room or personal space can really be quite a challenge. This is more so if you have more than one kid. The problem mostly with cleaning a kid’s room is that it gets messed up again as soon as you’re done cleaning it. Kids are not aware how important it is to have a clean room, and they can’t exactly understand this if you explain it to them. What most mothers need to understand is that explaining things to kids alone wouldn’t really make the picture stick. Kids follow more by example. Remember the phrase “monkey-see, monkey-do”?
That’s what you need to remember. Showing kids how to clean and maintain the cleanliness of their room will make them follow this important routine. You also need to make cleaning fun. Make it more like playing than actually cleaning. Have a fun music play in the background, and play with the toys as you go about the cleaning. Tell them stuffs like how dolly likes to stay in the top shelf, and that’s her permanent place from now. Or how Mr. Cowboy thinks of the toy box as his home, and that he needs to go home right after playing. Things like these will be remembered by your kids, and they wouldn’t think of cleaning as a chore anymore.
Also one great way to have your kids clean after their mess is to decorate their room with nice and colorful palaces to place their toys. Kids’ toy storage, a deviation from kids storage bins are popular among Moms. These boxes or shelves are made in such a way that it’s appealing to kids– appealing enough that they will let you put it in their room. Believe me, these storages are life savers for Mom. No more stepping on that toy car ten times a day or seeing Mrs. Potato head in your kitchen. A lot of these things are sold over the internet, or you can go to your favorite furniture shop to search for toy storage.
Although toy storage can be quiet expensive, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it. There are a couple of ways to keep your kid’s room organized even without purchasing toy storage. You know those clear boxes used for shoe storage? You could always use those keeping your kids’ toys, especially for the little toys that would get lost in big toy boxes. You can have one kind of toy per box. Like, one box for building blocks; one box for toy cars and one box for art supplies. This way, your kids can just grab one and play. No need to take all toys out, unlike if you’re kid has only one box for all the toys.
