Time to Get Organized!
Organization is important for children and adults alike. But, it is essential for right-brain dominant thinkers that struggle with internal order. Now is a great time to get your home organized. Let’s start with their clothes.
I have created some adorable labels for you or your child to put on her drawers so she can easily keep her clothes organized and maybe even help put away her own laundry.
These are some of the things I think about when organizing for kids, or myself:
Prepare the environment. That’s a Montessori principle that reflects a very mainstream concept. It’s about getting things ready in the room before the activity begins. To get started, look at the structure of the room, the furniture, the way the room is used and consider ways to make it more effective.
Shelves, Drawers, Baskets and Boxes are your friends. Toyboxes are the worst place to store toys. A bunch of toys piled into a large dark space can mean nothing but chaos. Parts get lost, kids get overwhelmed and they can’t even see what they have to play with. To create order and a more successful play space, put up a few shelves. Be sure they’re at a comfortable height for your child. Place toys and play sets in baskets and boxes to help make choices visible and keep pieces together. Don’t forget to add labels!
Encourage Cleanup and Consistency. Now that you’ve created an organized space, be sure to teach your child how to use it and maintain it. Encourage one toy or activity at a time, be sure they know how to put things back before starting something new, and be the one to help maintain the order. Kids really do appreciate structure, and can operate more successfully, but they’re still kids. Be sure to be encouraging, keep it positive and make it fun.

I am so sorry about that. I resent you the first set of labels. Check your spam folder just in case it went into there by mistake.
