10 Kid-Friendly Storage Bins That Make Organizing Fun

With the new year we are all making resolutions to be better in various areas of our lives, including organization in the home. This year, I am trying to work with my little guy on keeping his spaces tidy and organized, and I think some fun, new kid-friendly storage bins would be just the thing to help out with that!

With a lot of these storage bins, cleaning up will be almost as fun and colorful as playtime! Ok so maybe not quite as fun, but it couldn’t hurt to try it out, right? Wrap up the new bins, and give them to the kids as a gift? Maybe make a game of it? Sometimes even just having new bins to store all of your stuff in can be enough to get excited about cleaning up and staying organized.

Check them out and see which ones will help motivate your little one! My guess is the new bins will work like a charm and you and your little ones will be happy and tidy for the new year.

    Teach them while they tidy! It's kind of like a dream come true, right? You could also set them up like a clean-up game. Set the "1" closest, the "2" a little further, and the "3" the furthest away and try to rack up points tossing toys into the bins. Fun!
