Add Ikea Kallax storage unit(s):

  • Use for larger toys and games
  • Label each container by toy type
  • Use a photo label to help kids keep their own stuff tidy
  • Use new box dividers if necessary to keep categories separate
  • Create additional storage and add on top of other cabinets (secure to the wall)


2. Sort by Colour

Divide toys or games items by colour:

  • Humans are very visual, categorising by colour is a great way for any child or adult to find something.
  • Use with clear containers or jars
  • Works well with books, games, books, lego, clothes and craftstoys


3. Use a trolley
