How to Keep Your Child's Room Clean???
As some of you know, I have the youngest three girls in the same room. We put bunk beds in there and Delta and Emma share a bed. The sleep situation has been great. I'm hoping this will continue until Katia is old enough to move down stairs.
We have shelves in there to keep the toys and books on. I put the smaller toys in bins with labels to help with organizing these.
They have a walk in closet, so I keep the laundry hamper in there. We have shelves in the closet also to keep the shoes on so it isn't a big pile to dig through.
We will work together to clean it up sometimes, but lately it is me cleaning and them destroying. Here is what it looks like today, even though Saturday we had it spotless.
What can I do about them destroying in 5 minutes, what I cleaned in 30? I think 3 and 1/2 and almost 22 months is old enough to keep some semblance of organization. They dump out the bins and throw everything off the shelf. They will climb on the top bunk and throw the coats down. (I have bought over the door hangers to put on the end of each bed for us to use for coat racks. It works great!)
So here is what I need your help with: How can I get them to , first of all help, but then not make too big of a mess that we can't even walk to their beds? Thanks ahead of time for all your ideas. Pin It
