Organizing our kids toys has been on my to-do list for quite some time. Now that it’s September, we have the holidays and birthdays approaching which means MORE toys. It was time that I tackled the mess or I wouldn’t be seeing my living room floors again any time soon! I’ve been on the hunt for fun toy bin labels that I could use for our living room which has toys stored everywhere and for in the kids bedrooms. With a house that’s full of boys and girls I wanted something that I could personalize ourselves because we have a million blocks, cars, and books that are split up between kids. So I’ve come up with a fun design that I wanted to share with you. These labels can be customized by you or the kids, after all if it’s something for in their room let them have fun and personalize these by using their own drawings of their toys on the labels.
Sharpie is my go to product when I’m crafting or organizing, so of course I had to use my new Sharpie Pens that I purchased at Walgreens to customize my new toy bin labels! I used the Stainless Steel Sharpie Pen (my favorite) and the color assorted Sharpie Pens. These Sharpe Pens give you the quality of writing with a Sharpie Marker but with the performance of a pen that doesn’t bleed through the paper and the variety of colors make these perfect for organizing!
To get started you’ll need the following:
– Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen/ Color Assorted Sharpie Pens
– Clear Contact Paper

First you need to print the labels and then cut around them. Next personalize the labels for whatever you need them for. We used a few for at the bottom of our stairs to collect toys through the day that end up downstairs that should be in the bedrooms. I put the kids names on the bins and they sit near the stairs so when they go to bed they can take their bin of toys with them to put away. It makes for an easy clean up downstairs! After you’ve personalized your labels, cover them with your contact paper and cut them out again leaving a small trim of contact paper around the label.
To attach them to the bins I used Velcro, that way it’s easy to change in the future for changing out the new/old toys!
