Yesterday I had the cleaning and organizing bug in me! Maybe it was because I started to think about Christmas presents for the kids and I started to get a little panicky about more stuff entering our house soon! So, I decided to tackle a few areas of the house that had started to get overrun with stuff. One of the rooms I focused on was the kids’art room. I cleared several bags of stuff out of the art closet and found a permanent home for everything that stayed in the room. After it was all clean, I decided it’d be a perfect time to give a kids’ art room tour. I can’t guarantee the next time it’ll be this clean again!
This little room used to be my middle son’s bedroom, but after an addition we put on our house a few years ago, he decided to share a bigger room with his younger brother. I was excited to have a room freed up and to turn it into a creative space. This room is referred to by many names including the art room, the Lego room and the playroom.
All of the craft supplies are housed in a closet in this room, so most of our art projects take place in here. Also, we keep all of the Legos here too…although Legos can usually be found all over the house. We’ve got dress up clothes in the closet and even the kids’ aquarium is housed in here. This room is small but it serves a lot of purposes!
We made these pom garlands with sewing thread and mini craft poms.
I shared a picture of this closet before my clean up on my Instagram account yesterday–it wasn’t pretty!
All of the art supplies tucked away in the closet. In addition, I stored some of the less played Legos on shelves. Next step will be labeling the containers!

A final note & mom tip: If you reorganize a space without your kids, take them on a “tour” to show them where everything has been placed. I’ve found that if I don’t tell them, the toys/crafts tend to not get played with because no one can find them!
