Outdoor Toy Storage Ideas: Simple Ways to Maximise Space in Your Home
These foldable, waterproof buckets are a great way to store small outdoor toys. They are perfect for use in the garden, porch or garage. You could even label each bucket to make the toys even more organised! Perhaps have a set of low hooks or shelves on the outside wall or in the shed to put them on for easy access.
These plastic stacking baskets (or crates) can be used throughout the garden as toy storage containers. You could stack them on the patio, in a shed or even affix them individually from your fence using large hooks! They’re simple, cheap & easy for kids to use, but would need some protection in the coldest weather if left in the open.
A lockable, plastic storage box is an ideal outdoor storage solution for a variety of garden equipment including toys in any season. The wide opening doors make it easier to store larger toys such as ride on cars or small slides. Heavy-duty bolts on the main door make it nice & secure & the durable, weather-resistant design means no maintenance or fading. They can be personalised by your little ones with special stickers etc. to encourage them to tidy up when needed.
Storage benches are another great way of storing garden toys whilst also creating extra seating! The seat lifts up so you can put items inside & this particular one is made from plastic so it is weather resistant & looks really good. If you are handy with a saw, hammer & nails, you could build a wooden version yourself.
Perfect for a garage or shed, plastic shelving is a cheap way of creating more space. Store larger toys & crates or bins of smaller toys onto the shelves, creating a clutter-free, organised space. You can get them in various colours too so making it more attractive & helping your children to know what goes where!
If there is space in your garage or shed, use these pegboards to create a hanging space for outdoor items. Complete with hooks, these pegboards can be used to store anything from bike helmets to tennis rackets. You can even paint them in a colour of your choice. A really versatile storage solution.
Organising your outdoor areas is just as important as organising your home. These storage ideas are a great way of showing your children where each item needs to go & hopefully they will be able to tidy up without too much help.
