Anyway, I find myself getting very frustrated with the mess that accumulates on the shelves. My girls are not very good at tidying up & they just shoved stuff on the shelves so that it was all off the table.
I did have 2 pink plastic crates that housed their mega bloks & also the collection of little people, cars, animals etc that they play with. These sat on the bottom 2 shelves but were a bit too big really so kept getting knocked off. Also, they haven't really proven to be very sturdy over the past couple of years as they have been very easy to break - I started off with 6 crates!!!
We went to JTF last week & I saw some slightly smaller, lidded crates for sale at £18 for 5, which I didn't think was too horrendous. After a little bit of sorting the shelves look better:
Here's is what I have put in the crates:
1. Mega bloks
2. Little people, cars, animals, fences etc
3. Small houses, stables etc
4. Paper, pencils, crayons etc
5. Play doh pots, cutters etc
We'll see how long it stays organised like this for!!!
