Organizing Kids’ Puzzles, Arts, and Crafts
Puzzles are not only for whiling away the time during stormy and cold weather to keep your children indoors. No, puzzles are great ways to teach your kids problem-solving skills, story-telling skills, math problems, and encourage the growth of their fine and gross motor skills. Of course, puzzles are also lots of fun to build as a family.
You can learn more about puzzles and other kids’ games by reading customer reviews of kids’ toy shops such as Us Toys on platforms such as US-Reviews. At the same time, you can read what you can expect about Us Toys when shopping with them.
We all know that puzzles can quickly pile up. After one is built, the safest and tidiest thing to do is to break the puzzle up and pack it into its storage box or packaging. We can’t let the puzzle pieces mix with other puzzles – it will lead to us being unable to complete a single puzzle in time or properly when we misplace the correct pieces.
There are many solutions to this problem of puzzle packing, though. This article will help you to find out the different ideas you can use and how to also store arts and crafts supplies, too.
Do you have an old dresser unit unused in your attic or garage? That will make for a fantastic storage solution for your child’s puzzles, arts, and crafts. With drawers, you can place the puzzles in easy-to-reach and access areas for your kids to retrieve and put away their favorite puzzles.
If you aren’t lucky to have a spare or unused dresser, have you got closet space in their room for a hanging organizer? These are fantastic to use for puzzles. Each tier of the organizer can be stacked with puzzles in their boxes. It also makes it easier for your kids to see their puzzles and to play with them.
Under-bed storage is another wonderful space that is far too often underutilized by parents for storage. With tote bins, lidless bins, or crates, you can create large amounts of storage for puzzles, arts, and craft supplies. Each bin can be marked for specific uses and for different kinds of craft and art supplies.
When it comes to shelving, this can be trickier to keep neat and tidy. As you know, arts and crafts supplies come in various forms, shapes, and sizes. Think of paint bottles, ribbons, marking pens, reams of paper, and the like: they all require separate spaces to keep them tidy and ordered. For this, a tilted shelving system can be made with storage bins angled so that your children can view the contents of the individual bins easily.
If you have a bookcase shelf in their room, you can create DIY bins with labels to clearly identify the purpose of each to avoid clutter.
By keeping puzzles, and arts and crafts supplies in some form of order, it will be easier for your kids to use and will make it easier for them to access the different supplies to be more creative in their crafting.
