It can be so hard sometimes to keep everything organized in the kids bedrooms!
That’s why I love the storage cubes that you find at the dollar store! They are inexpensive, colorful (or not) and hold an amazing amount of toys out of your eyesight!!
However, in order to keep the kids from dumping every single box on the floor every time they want to play with a Barbie doll or that itsy bitsy plastic toy that they just remembered they own, you need to have a system in place.
And this is when labels come in handy. I labeled each box for a determined type of toy and now they know to keep everything organized. They also find it more enjoyable to clean up since everything has a place and there are not as many toys out of their place.
Here is a photo of the labels I made for my girls storage cubes.
They were easy to make too! 🙂
- I used that plastic protective circle that comes with the boxes of CDs and DVDs.
- Place the circle on top of colorful scrapbooking paper and trace it. Cut the paper.
- Glue the paper to the plastic circle. I made sure to have the plastic go on top of the printed side of the paper so that I could write on it after.
- With a hole puncher, make a hole close to the edge of the circle.
- Write the name of the toys you want to have on that box directly across the hole.
- Cut a long ribbon through the hole. Knot it twice and then tie it in a bow around the handle of the box.
- There you made your first cute label.
The good thing about these is that you can make them as girly or as manly as you wish depending on the paper you use.
