Lets start with my art supplies for the kidlets. Most people probably have a dining room specific hutch or buffet in their dining room. Why not put a dresser in there? It offers TONS of space for all your stuff and is perfect size for the kidlets to get at the stuff they need.
Our Play Doh and utensils. Our opened cups are at the front and our extras are at the back of the drawer.
Our Play Doh utensils are kept in a plastic bin. This came as a gift basket full of baby supplies when we were pregnant, we recycled it for this purpose.
In the opposite drawer we have all our Play Doh equipment.
In another drawer, we keep all our markers, crayons pencil crayons and colouring books.
Our pencil crayons are kept in a recycled make up bag.
Our crayons are kept in a gift box that was from a present a few Christmas' ago.
And we keep our markers in a handy zipper lock bag, for easy transporting and to keep them contained in case one leaks!
Next is our paint and science experiment equipment drawer. We also keep some extra crayons in there too :)
Again, we have a zipper bag in case something leaks. All our paint utensils and stamps live here.
The rest of the drawers in the dresser contain Mama's stuff like cookbooks, dish clothes and the age old Junk Drawer!
Since the last Toy Organization installment, we have updated the Lego Table. You can see the original post here. My son asked me if I could label the drawers so it would be easier for him to know where everything goes. Although the drawers are see through, they are not to a 5 year old and he was spending a lot of time opening drawer after drawer trying to find where his pieces went. So this was our solution.
First I took a picture of each of the pieces that go in each drawer. Then I placed all of them on an 8X10 canvas in Photo Shop, sent the JPEG to Walmart to print out and then cut them up and taped them on. My little guy gets his Lego tidied up much easier now!
Under the hooks we have a bin that is for hats, shoes, gloves, wigs and small costume pieces.
This is what it looks like all hung up!
That's all for Toy Organization. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here! As always, Happy Organizing!!
