FREE Play Room Labels

FREE play room labels for my readers, plus some great tips for getting kids to pack up their toys and keep their rooms clean.

Happy Monday! I hope you are having a fantastic start to the week. Today I thought I would chat about our play room labels and how I get Miss H to help clean up.

When I did our last play room update, hazel was only 2 and wasn’t quite able to put toys away on her own. We were using labels on the baskets and boxes with words, mostly for my benefit. As Hazel got older and was able to help more, I swapped the labels out for ones with pictures so she knows exactly where everything goes and can pack up without much help.

I thought I would share a couple of tips for getting your kids to help pack up their toys.

  • 1 Out Rule – We try to only have one toy (or box of toys) out at a time. When it is time to pack up, Hazel throws them back into the box and can get something else out.
  • Quick Pick Up – We do 2 everyday, before lunch and before dinner. Doing 2 pick ups everyday means that it can’t get too out of control before it is all packed up again.
  • Small Chunks – I like to give clear, direct instructions to avoid confusion. “Clean up your toys” is massive for a 3 year old. Try giving smaller tasks (“Put all the blocks into the box”) and wait until they are finished before moving on to something else.
  • A Place For Everything – Keep your play room organised and make sure everything has a place. Telling a child to put something away when it has no clear place can be a little confusing.
  • Use Labels – And that is where I come in 😉

To help you keep your toys tidy, I am giving these printables to all my lovely readers. All you need to do is comment on this post (make sure you keep the newsletter box checked) and your free play room labels will be sent in my newsletter tomorrow.

I printed my labels onto cardboard and laminated them then used a hot glue gun to attach them to the boxes.

Do you have any other tips for keeping the toys in your home under control?
