A set of hooks or a peg rail is a great way to encourage your child to keep his or her closet tidy by hanging things such as pajamas, sweatshirts, and hoodies that don’t require a hanger. Also, this is the perfect spot for your kid to hang a backpack or book bag so that you can avoid the daily hunt for this elusive item as the school bus sits in front of the house honking its horn.
Shoes, boots, and other footwear can be stored on a small shoe shelf in the bottom of the closet. Encourage your child to keep footwear in pairs and in good repair.
Storing Toys, Sporting Equipments, and Dance/Exercise Clothes
Every kid has lots of stuff that needs to be stowed. Toys should be kept in toy boxes or storage bins in the child’s room. However, toy overflow can be kept in storage boxes or in cubicles in the bottom of the child’s closet.
Like clothing, toys should be edited and cleaned out every six months to a year, as many children’s playthings are designed for age-appropriateness. If your child has outgrown some toys, give them away or donate t hem to your favorite charity.
