What are some tips for de-cluttering my child's play area?

My toddler loves playing with her toys. Putting them away? Not so much. How can it be easier for both of us to make the play room in our house cleaner -- so she can play all she wants, but it’s not always a mess when guests stop by?

Keeping your play room organized and clean is definitely a challenge. How many storage baskets, tubs, and drawer units do you have? It’s a trick question: No matter what your answer may be, there are never enough!

Try to teach your daughter which toys go in which bins, and try to end every play session with the “Clean Up Song” so the play room never gets too out of control. Most importantly, also remember this: You have a toddler! Guests understand.
