How can you help your kid have more organised and tidy room? We are here to walk you through a couple of tips and strategies to get rid of clutter and bring sparkle to your kids’ rooms. Easy and efficiently.
Have you ever thought that kids look at things a little bit differently than us, the adults? Try to look at their room from their point of view. Focus on belongings, furniture, free and occupied space. Surprising, right? At young age they haven’t developed their maintenance skills and are not able to distinguish tidy from messy. You can change that.
The organising system which the adults use is not compatible with the one we can use in a kid’s room. There are many examples which can prove it- starting with the ordinary hangers which cannot fit small sizes of clothes moving on the closet door which can pinch your kid’s little fingers. So when we organise our child’s room, we should do it in a way which will go perfectly on our child.
First things first. Are you the only one who does the domestic chores? Who has to run the household alone? There is no more need to be like this. Why do not you involve your kids into the cleaning process? Do not get into the mess and clutter on your own. You will find it very beneficial your kids to improve their organisation skills and to help you with future maintenance as well, not only with cleaning their own room but with the whole property as well. You can prepare a task list with cleaning duties which they will follow. You can encourage them in the end with a treat or permission to stay up till later. You know that kids love it!
A kids’ room is usually not too big so it will not take you that much time to deep clean better and organise it. There are few simple solutions you can benefit from to keep everything under control. Start with emptying all wardrobes, drawers and closet. When you remove everything, clean the spaces. Then it is time to take care of the clothes- sort them accordingly. For example, put all the clothes, which are out of season or just do not fit the kid any more, in a box or a bag and store it under the bed or in the closet. Remove all the clothes which your kid does not wear any more so the wardrobe will be better organised and tidy.
It is impossible to imagine a floor in a kid’s room without all the piled up toys. In case you are wondering what to do to bring some order, provide yourself with a storage container or just a plastic bag where you will put all the over-abundant toys. You can even use shoe boxes or just an ordinary cardboard box where to put smaller items like cars, tiny dolls and their clothes, etc.
However, no matter how often you clean and organise your child’s room, after a single play and immediately the room will be back to its messy and cluttered condition. You can help children take better care of their rooms by simply introducing them to a new system.
Try to make them straighten the comforter, make beds and get clothing directly to the laundry basket. All these duties can be performed in the mornings. Do not worry, there will be some duties for the evening sessions as well- put away all toys back to their place (the already mentioned storage containers) and put dirty dishes and glasses into the dishwasher.
