Each Monday I post something that can help you organize your home. I think that being organized really helps to run a household…especially with little kids running around.
This week is all about kids in the kitchen.
Having children help and contribute around the house is wonderful for a child’s self-esteem and sense of belonging. It also helps children learn life skills like cleaning up and doing household chores.
One way I do this with J is by having his dishes in a place where he can access them. He is able to get his plate and bowl out at mealtimes and puts them away when we unload the dishwasher.
The problem I have is that this is our drawer.
It’s a cluttered mess and not everything has a place. I would love to have his sippy cups and utensils down there too, but there just isn’t space and it’s not organized enough.
So, I’m taking inspiration from Lovely Design and her drawer boxes.
I’m not quite sure how I’m going to do this yet. I’ll let the idea marinate for a bit before I decide.
How do you organize your kids kitchen stuff? Any good pointers out there?
