So, instead, start by grabbing some inexpensive boxes that match your kid’s room decor and show them how easy it is to keep their room clean.
“Whether it’s a box for dolls, another box for jigsaw puzzles, or a box for blocks, it’s a simple pouring technique that saves floor space and your time!” Vicky explains.
Next, it’s all about the label.
Labeling boxes can be more helpful than you think. It provides clear instructions for your child on what needs to go where – and can be turned into a fun crafting activity.
“If you have young children, why not create pictures of what goes in each box or storage?” Vicky suggested. “That way, they can easily determine what goes in each one.”
For older children, simplify it with lettered labels.

Vicky’s third tip is all about analysis, so it’s time to take a close look at all the stuff your kid has.
Over time, children’s rooms are filled with old toys and old things that they are no longer interested in. Don’t let your kids hoard unnecessary items just because they can.
“Be clear and donate to a charity” Vicky said “It’s a great reason to get kids involved and implant this idea so that it becomes a part of their lives. We grow up and get through everything and ‘that’s okay’ is common sense. spies”.
Donating items can also open a dialogue with your child about the importance of giving to charity.
Tip number four focuses on your child’s artwork.
Instead of having drawers full of pictures, or paintings piled up on the floor where they can get messy and ripped, why not create something special for them.
Vicky suggests having a “dedicated wall art area in their room”.
This is also a budget-friendly way to decorate your kid’s room! You can buy cheap frames online and can easily replace the artwork when your kids get bored.
And if you’re looking for ways to keep a tidy room shared by two kids, color coding could be your friend.
Having two kids in the same room doesn’t mean double the mess. If you use color-coded boxes, kids can learn to share and get organized from an early age.
“Some toys are for sharing so there can be a designated neutral space or living in a different area of the house,” advise Vicky. “It’s a great way to organize a room, encourage tidying and teach them important life skills that will help them as they grow up.”
Finally, Vicky recommends using wallpaper to help make rooms look as appealing to children as possible – without the need to completely redecorate.
Adding some custom murals can be a great way to freshen up a room and give it more personality. Is your child obsessed with space? Why not add some alien and moon stickers on the ceiling? The possibilities are endless and you can both have fun in the process.
