We'll show you how to thin out items that are creating clutter instead of playful chatter. After you're done with cleaning, why not snag some playroom decor that optimizes space (and fun)? Many of our products can be used as storage, furniture, and functional play objects.

Quick Tips and Tricks on Decluttering the Playroom

Two kids in a playroom with many toys.

No need to purge everything (the kids probably won't let you, either)! But there's some simple ways to clear out what is no longer needed and to bring a fresh look to the playroom. Here's a quick list to help out: 

  1. Organize toys and objects into piles. Want to figure out which objects are in excess? Easy. put them into piles and see which piles look unruly. From there, pull out extras or toys your children have outgrown. 

  2. Divide into Donate, Keep, and Trash. In well-marked piles, boxes, or bags, divide the items. If your child is old enough, involve them in the process. Demonstrate that it is a good thing to regularly clean their playspace and let them take charge of what to place in each pile. 

  3. Clean the things you keep. Clean toys and furniture with safe sanitation methods. Encourage children to clean up after play by showing them where each object should go. (P.S. It's okay if it doesn't work out perfectly all of the time. Just getting into the habit can help instill better habits in kids!)
