Play Room Organization…

I think it’s about time we talk organization! I’ve always loved to organize and rearrange! When I was little I would rearrange my room ALL the time and kept a tidy organized room! To this day organization makes me happy and is a stress reliever! I don’t have as much time to keep up with my organizing now because my children quickly make things un-organized and the cycle repeats itself!
I have big plans for our playroom, but we have many other projects that need to come first! So as we begin to re-do our playroom I’ll be sure to share! For now, it’s all about what we’re currently using to organize!

Lets start with art supplies! Our kiddos LOVE to color!! However, the twins are enjoying displaying their art work on the walls! So I’ve quickly learned to have things organized and up high where they can’t get them!

We bought this wardrobe when we needed organization in our daughters room, but didn’t have a closet! It’s now been converted into the dress-up/art storage area! I love using the sides for storage. I found some cheap tubs from Walmart that fit the space and have made it even easier to keep organized! We have everything from Play-Doh to baby doll clothes in the tubs. I put the things the twins can play with on the bottom and the items they need supervision with on the top. This isn’t working quite as well now because they’ve figured out how to scoot over a chair and open the tubs!! Live and learn right!!


The top of the wardrobe is where I’m keeping our puzzles. This puzzle organizer has been a great addition! If you have older children this would be a great thing to put on top of a cube organizer or shelf! Our kids are still too little for that and …

The top of the wardrobe is where I’m keeping our puzzles. This puzzle organizer has been a great addition! If you have older children this would be a great thing to put on top of a cube organizer or shelf! Our kids are still too little for that and would dump all of them! I also have our kinetic sand and paper on the top.

I’m so glad I found this organizer!!! It’s actually a photo storage container! It’s clear and comes with 6 inserts for individual storage! I’ve used it for crayons and markers, but the options are endless! Think of all the art supplies that could be stored in these! The other nice thing is you can grab one out and take it to the table, in the car, or even outside! I highly recommend this for all your organizing needs and for teachers!

One thing I like to have the kids use for Play-Doh is a tray. I have two gray trays and I’ll put them on the table for the twins to define their space. Sometimes I use it for painting as well! It helps confine the mess and sometimes whose supplies is whose!!


Dress up time is a favorite at our house!! We’ve used the hanging part of the wardrobe for everything dress up!! All the princess dress, old Halloween costumes, and even the paint smocks, get hung in here! Of course, we can’t forget the heels! I als…

My kids love this table and so do I! I picked it out for our daughters 2nd birthday and her very thoughtful aunt and uncle bought it for her! It’s definitely gotten a lot of use! I love the vibrant colors because it screams kids! It’s so easy to wipe off! I just use a magic eraser and it gets off lots of wear and tear.


This cube organizer used to be my go-to for organizing all things toys! We still like them, but have re-purposed them! We used to have the cute baskets on the cube shelves. Cute baskets = Dump Fests!! I found that our kiddos didn’t play with the toy…

This cube organizer used to be my go-to for organizing all things toys! I still like them, but they’ve been somewhat re-purposed! We use to have the cute baskets on the shelves. Cute baskets = Dump Fests!! I also found the kids didn’t play with the toys as much!

“Out of sight, out of mind.”

Kids need to see what their options are and they shouldn’t be overwhelmed! Less is more! So the cubes were soon turned into a changing table for the twins. The only gray basket you’ll see is for wipe and diaper storage. If you’re a mommy to be or need an idea for a changing table, I suggest this set-up!! Notice how other than one basket everything is visible. And our kids do play with it!

Don’t let me fool you, I have toys stored away in rubbermaids! I’ve gone through and weeded out a lot of excess in the play room! I’ve tried putting more toys in their rooms and I even have a couple of tubs with extra baby dolls or other toys that I’ll switch out. For example, we have a ball pit that was put up and I’ll get it back out this winter! If you have extra storage I suggest rotating your toys!!

I think organizing is always a work in progress! So if you’re like me and love to organize please share some of your tips below in the comments!!
