I am planning on adding labels to each of the drawers with a picture of what is in each of the bins, I will be adding those pictures above where each of the drawers goes so the kids know right where to put the bins back when they are done. I have a few of our big fire trucks on the top and a couple baskets of toys, both of which I change out once and a while with other toys from storage.
Here is our chalkboard and our Mindware marble run in the corner of the room. Behind that door is a place we call “cold storage”it has no insulation and is very cold. That is where lots of my misc school stuff has gone which I will explain more when I reveal the new school room.
In the built in shelves on the top shelf I have put all the misc sensory toys the middle shelf originally had puzzles and themed books along the back, and the bottom shelf held coloring books.
Since taking this picture we have put all the themed books into a dishpan that has a themed label on the front, and the puzzles have gone back on the puzzle rack so that when they want to use a puzzle they need to ask a big kid for help to get it down. The coloring books on the bottom shelf have also been put into a dishpan. Having to expect the kids to put the things away on the shelves and also expecting them to not get put all around the room was just to hard when having everything laid out.
On the top shelf is a puzzle rack with some of our preschool puzzles, our DIY bowling pins, and cones. I am going to be adding a picture behind each of the sections of what should be where on the shelf, so that the kids can easily remember where they took each of the toys off the shelf from and properly put them away.
