Organizing Routines Kids Can Do By Themselves
There are so many benefits to helping kids organize their rooms that it's worth the effort! Aside from it being a great activity, they'll also get in touch with their creative side by creating new arrangements using items from around the house. Here are some organizing routines kids can do by themselves:
Tidy up the closet
This is a good place to start with teaching them how to be organized. Teach them how to fold their clothes, where to put their socks and underwear, where they should put the dirty ones, and how to hang their jackets the right way. If they have clothes that they don’t use or fit them anymore, they can put them in this Stuffed Animal Bean Bag Storage Chair. It’s a stylish furniture piece and functional storage at the same time.
It’s a simple task but it goes a long way and lessens the things you need to do every day.
Use baskets and bins to store toys by type, size, color, and brand. Help them label the bins so they know what's in them at all times and to make it easy for them to find what they’re looking for during playtime.
You can also try this Over Door Stuffed Animal Toy Storage. It’s a good option if you want to save space and get the room cleaned up in seconds.
If you want something more permanent but still portable enough that your kids won't struggle to lug around their favorite treasures all day long (and night), you can use a box. Ask your kids which toys they don’t want to play with anymore so you put them in the garage or basement. Explain to them the purpose of this method so they could evaluate it better.
Put away books
If you want your kids to organize their books by topic, then use a bookcase or shelf. Teach them how to put their books in order by size, color, or theme. Or even arrange them in alphabetized order as well if you want to be more specific. For example: if they have a science fiction collection and an action-adventure collection then move them onto one shelf so that kids can easily find what they are looking for when they need it!
Labels are your best friend
Label things with a permanent marker, or use stickers if you have them on hand. If not, use masking tape and a permanent marker to label your kid’s belongings. This activity gives children the opportunity to be more creative and practice their writing.
You’ll be surprised to see your kids having fun while organizing their room. It’s guaranteed that they will enjoy it and make them feel like they have more control over the things around them once they’re done!
