DIY Toy Storage Life Hacks You Need to Know

1. Covered Kiddie Car Garage

|

Your kids will feel like grownups with this covered kiddie car garage. It can also serve as an early lesson in parking responsibly — making sure they “park” their car within the boundary.

The number of PVC pipes you’ll need depends on the number of toy cars your kids have. For this tutorial, 5 pieces measuring 10″ each was used.

2. Toy Chest

|

Remember to place wood glue first before drilling the screws in for the toy chest. I also recommend adding wheels to the bottom to make it easier to move the toy chest if needed.

3. Toy Car Garage

|

This toy car “garage” would be great for your kid’s old collection of Hot Wheels — those already come with metal bottoms. If however, your kids have the new collections, all you have to do is stick on a thin magnet to the underside of the toy cars.

4. Customizable Storage Bins


I love how these storage bins are fully customizable. Plus, it only uses black masking tape as its DIY stickers. If you can’t find black masking tape, don’t worry. Simply go over your sticker designs with a black Sharpie.

5. Under The Bed Train Table

|

The beauty of this train table is how it can be placed under a bed, making it an easy hack to clean a kid’s room.

Just remember to measure out the length of the bed, so you can make sure the table will fit underneath. You can even attach a handle on the side for an easier pull-out.

6. Hanging Fabric Storage


Have extra fabric left over from a previous sewing project? Why not turn it into hanging fabric storage for your kid’s toys!

Remember to leave a bigger space for the top and bottom seam allowances. You’ll be inserting dowel rods through the top and bottom seam allowances to help your DIY project hang well.

7. Cards Storage for Kids

|

Keep your kid’s favorite card games organized by placing them in plastic containers. You can even use the game’s original paper packaging as the label of the plastic container.

8. Dice Tin

|

Avoid losing dice by storing them in a mint tin can. Simply clean your used tin can, and pop the dice in.

If you’d like, you could also decorate the tin can with a piece of wrapping paper. One of the most brilliant toy storage solutions!

9. Mounted Board Games

|

This board game hack allows you to mount your kid’s favorite board games on the wall, making it an extra piece of room decor. Just be sure not to leave too much room around the board’s borders to have a snug fit.

10. Stuffed Animal Swing

|

This stuffed animal swing idea is a genius idea! Don’t forget to tie knots both above and under the swing seats. Doing so will prevent the seats from falling out of place.

11. Hidden Storage Bins

|

These hidden storage bins can be attached to any table in your kid’s room. The secret lies in sticking velcro to your table’s underside and attaching the other velcro piece to your fabric bags.

12. Ikea Bins

|

The trick to utilizing these Ikea bins is to properly label each one, especially if you’re using them as toy boxes.

Divide your kid’s toys into different categories such as the brands they come from. That way, you keep like products together and keep complete sets.

13. Bucket Outdoor Toy Organizer

|

Store your kid’s favorite outdoor toys in buckets you can leave in the garage. If you don’t have stainless buckets, plastic ones will do just as well.

This is one of the best toy organization ideas around.

14. DIY Wood Crate Toy Storage

|

This wood crate storage can hold more than just toys. You can even fill some of the cubbyholes with your kid’s favorite books and coloring materials, making this project a great way to keep a room clutter-free.

15. Shower Toy Caddy

|

Are your kids obsessed with their bathroom toys? Keep everything organized with this shower toy caddy.

Would you believe it’s only made from a metal hanging fruit basket?

16. Rolling Under Bed Wood Storage Cart

|

Just like the train table mentioned earlier, another way you can take advantage of your kid’s under bed storage is to place a wood storage cart.

If you have siblings sharing a room, you can even give them a storage cart each. Just don’t forget to stick labels on to avoid any fights.

17. Clear Storage Bags

|

What I love about these clear storage bags is how they have drawstring closures on the top, making it less likely for toys to spill over.

Need help attaching the pull string inside the top casing? Attach a pin to one end and use that to help get your string through to the other end.

18. Pickup And Play Mat

|

Clean up becomes so much easier with this pickup and play-mat. Remember to choose a sturdy fabric for this DIY project to make it resistant to any wear-and-tear that will inevitably happen along the way.

19. Fabric Lined Toy Box

|

Make a wooden crate more child-friendly by lining it with fabric on the inside. The best part is you can simply attach the fabric in with the help of upholstery tacks.

20. 5-Minute Rolling Storage

|

It’ll only take you 5-minutes to make this rolling storage project. Drilling isn’t even required because all you’ll need to attach the casters to the wire basket is a case of zipping ties.

21. Bird Nest

|

Give your kid’s room a DIY bird’s nest with this toy storage solution idea. All you’ll need are some tulle, wire hooks, ribbon, and a few rubber bands. That’s it!

22. Stuffed Animal Zoo

|

Keep all your kid’s stuffed animals enclosed in a DIY zoo. Avoid accidents by always maintaining adult supervision and making sure your kids don’t climb on this piece of DIY furniture.

23. Puzzle Pieces Organization

|

Is your kid a fan of puzzles? Keep everything neatly stored by placing each puzzle in a zip pouch. This hack makes for a nifty travel idea as well.

24. Toy Figures Organizer

|

Turn a shoe organizer into a home for your kid’s toy figures. This DIY hack is so simple, I can’t believe I didn’t think of this idea sooner!

25. Toy Canopy

|

Have a bed canopy your kids aren’t using anymore? Turn it into a toy storage solution by tying a knot at the bottom, and placing your kid’s stuffed animals inside.
