Décor & Gardening
Pack it away!
Cute displays are all the rage, especially for toys like cars. Attach simple wooden beams to the walls and pack your son’s little cars in a line on the beam. This will look neat and work as a display.
Who said vegetable racks are just meant to store veggies? Put these stackable containers to good use in your kid’s room. A lick of paint will match the crates to your décor in no time.
Getting the little ones dressed in the mornings shouldn’t be a drag. Simply label drawers as the days of the week. This way each day’s clothes is perfectly laid out and ready to go.
Not have a lot of space but still want to keep your kid’s room neat and tidy? Make a big round drawstring bag which opens up into a ‘play mat’. When playtime is over, simply pull the strings and put the bag away. Visit pretoria.getitonline.co.za for an easy tutorial.
This is a quick and easy way to keep toys together. Simply hang wire planters from the walls at varying heights so the kids can pack their toys away themselves.
A neat little organisational trick is to store teeny tiny toys like cars, Lego, dolls, etc. into clear plastic containers. You will be able to see each type of toy at a glance, but colourful labels will also help.
Attach a number of hooks to the wall to hold smaller items or plastic buckets to store soft toys, building blocks, etc.
