Toy storage solutions are a must to maintain a clean and orderly home. Avoid the chaos of having toys all over the place with these cool ideas.

Toy Storage Solutions | Reducing Clutter In Your Home

It’s true when they say that when you have kids, your whole world turns topsy-turvy, including your home. Toys scattered all over the place are an occupational hazard of having adorable little ones, so these toy storage solutions definitely come in handy. Try these ideas at home and the only thing you have to worry about is teaching your kids to put their toys back where they got them.

1. Covered Kiddie Car Garage

Your kids will feel like grown ups with this covered kiddie car garage. It can also serve as an early lesson in parking responsibly — making sure they “park” their car within the boundary. The number of PVC pipes you’ll need depends on the number of toy cars your kids have. For this tutorial, 5 pieces measuring 10″ each was used.

2. Toy Chest

Remember to place wood glue first before drilling the screws in for the toy chest. I also recommend adding wheels to the bottom to make it easier to move the toy chest if needed.

3. Toy Car Garage

This toy car “garage” would be great for your kid’s old collection of Hot Wheels — those already come with metal bottoms. If however, your kids have the new collections, all you have to do is stick on a thin magnet to the underside of the toy cars.

4. Customizable Storage Bins

I love how these storage bins are fully customizable. Plus, it only uses black masking tape as its DIY stickers. If you can’t find black masking tape, don’t worry. Simply go over your sticker designs with a black Sharpie.

5. Under The Bed Train Table

The beauty of this train table is how it can be placed under a bed, making it an easy hack to clean a kid’s room. Just remember to measure out the length of the bed, so you can make sure the table will fit underneath. You can even attach a handle on the side for an easier pull-out.

6. Hanging Fabric Storage

Have extra fabric left over from a previous sewing project? Why not turn it into a hanging fabric storage for your kid’s toys! Remember to leave a bigger space for the top and bottom seam allowances. You’ll be inserting dowel rods through the top and bottom seam allowances to help your DIY project hang well.

7. Cards Storage

Keep your kid’s favorite card games organized by placing them in plastic containers. You can even use the game’s original paper packaging as the label of the plastic container.

8. Dice Tin

Avoid losing dice by storing them in a mint tin can. Simply clean your used tin can, and pop the dice in. If you’d like, you could also decorate the tin can with a piece of wrapping paper.

9. Mounted Board Games

Just like the train table mentioned earlier, another way you can take advantage of your kid’s under bed storage is to place a wood storage cart. If you have siblings sharing a room, you can even give them a storage cart each. Just don’t forget to stick labels on to avoid any fights.

17. Clear Storage Bags

What I love about these clear storage bags is how they have drawstring closures on the top, making it less likely for toys to spill over. Need help attaching the pull string inside the top casing? Attach a pin to one end and use that to help get your string through to the other end.

18. Pickup And Play Mat
