DIY Toy Box

Teach your kids to keep their toys in order by building this Toy Box!
The mess in my children’s rooms is the only thing which really drives me mad. I can handle their whims, sulks or bad moods but the mess they create is unbearable. I know how important it is to teach them discipline and the need to keep the things in order not to get lost in your own stuff. However, I have to admit, it’s sometimes quite a difficult task for parents.

Together with Simon, we try to implement as many practical organizers as possible. Once he tried Recycled Styrofoam Wall Organizer which turned out to be a perfect solution for coloured pencils and pens.

Now I’d like to introduce DIY Toy Box for all the toys you can trip over. The idea posted by Audrey on her blog is the one I need. Among the array of other boxes presented on the net this one is the most adorable. Its undeniable benefit are the wheels thanks to which you can easily move the box around.

I’m going to give this project a try. Do you have any other ideas for toy boxes? If you want you can share them on our website.

    If using this item for children, I’d install locking casters. This way, if you have a climber, it doesn’t shift under them.

    I agree! My girls never really climbed on these so I didn’t have to worry too much – but locking casters would be great if you’re worried about your child climber around etc.
