Little Boys and Their Toys

Little boys.  It was all about ’em today as we peeked into some brothers’ closets.  The first little guy was a big fan of cars, trucks and tractors!  Little boys and their toys - messy closet 1

We started by clearing the stuffed animals out that were not played with anymore.  Having those two shelves open gave us lots of room to play with.  The top one was designated for larger puzzles that he would need to have help getting out, while we made room for the wooden board puzzles on a lower shelf that he could access.   Books were straightened and Christmas books were pulled out and stored together for the holidays.  We then had space for some of the larger toys from his room on the shelves.  We had to give some attention to the trucks on the floor that were driving mom nuts!  Little Boys and Their Toys - lots of trucks on the floor

The trucks found a new garage space under the bed and train tracks in baskets made a more contained presence in the closet.   We then took everything off of the top shelf.

Everything came off that main shelf and we put bins and books back after we pulled Christmas books out!  The search is still on for the perfect storage for this shelf that has so much potential and has not maximized it’s space.  It’s a bit tricky to find something narrow enough for the shelf space and not permanent.  The top clothes hanging rod is too high to be used now but when he gets taller it will be great!

So after we were done there was an entire top shelf open  and that is always a great thing to see!!  And last but not least the shelf in the corner all straightened up!Little Boys and Their Toys - organized corner shelf
