The children's rooms are usually quite small and sometimes the brothers have to share the same space. This is why a lot of things are gathered here, from clothes, to toys, books and notebooks, many of them in surplus. And since the children are not able to be too organized, most of the time their room becomes a real chaos.
What can you do to keep things in order for more than two hours after you clean up? You must, first of all, sort them carefully and remove everything that is extra, useless. For example, find another place to store your winter clothes in the summer. It also uses the storage space as efficiently as possible. Boxes, with or without lid, are a winning option in this regard.
To make things as easy as possible we offer some suggestions organization for the child's room:
1. Sort the child's clothes and toys
As I said, the first step is the one where you try to eliminate the surplus, the unnecessary things. Start with the wardrobe. Children grow up fast and many clothes remain small before they start wearing them too many times. You will be amazed to find that at least half of the clothing is already useless. So sort the clothes and keep only what you can wear.
Then go to the toys. You will find in this case that there are a lot of toys that the little one has not touched for a long time. And that's because children are quickly losing interest in things. You can try placing them in boxes and running them once every two to three weeks. That way, he will always have "new" toys.
Children do not know how to maintain order. Therefore, it is good not to leave everything within reach. For example, do not place the folded clothes on the bottom shelves. Find them a place that is not on their level so that you do not wake up with all the clothes you knew ironed and beautifully placed in the drawer just in the middle of the room just because you were looking for something to wear. Leave her only a few clothes from which she can choose to dress, so that she will not be tempted to climb on any chair to reach for blouses or dresses.
By the age of 6, children do not know how to read yet, so it will be quite difficult for them to identify boxes with toys or various objects by the name on the labels. However, there is a very practical way to make them recognize the place of things: stick small photos with the things stored in each box: lego, car parts, plasticine, dolls, etc. Then ask them to help you put everything in their places. In this way they will learn the organizational skills.
Make the most of the available space. For example, under the bed you can place plastic boxes with a lid containing small toys, such as puzzle or lego pieces. It is a good place to exploit and it is a pity not to use it to the full. Then take advantage of the space provided by the walls to mount cubes or shelves. You will find plenty of space only good for storing books, for example. Mount them carefully, using anchors as a precautionary measure.
5. Donate clothes and toys you no longer use
The excitement of a new toy disappears quickly. With the exception of those for which children develop true attachments, most toys become uninteresting soon after they have received them. In this way, the bedroom becomes a real museum of toys on which the dust rests.
Take a larger box and ask the little one to place in it those toys he no longer likes. Tell him that you will offer them to children who have not been so lucky to have so many toys, to children who have long wanted to have those things. Try to get from him and one of the toys he holds something more. This way you will learn what altruism means and will not grow a selfish person.
Go together to provide children's toys from a poor family. Thus, the child will have the opportunity to see the conditions in which those children live and will learn to value more what he has.
