Outdoor Toy Storage Ideas

The Summer holidays are nearly upon us which means it's nearly time for your garden to become littered with toys. If you are tired of looking at a landscape of metal and plastic, and fed up of picking up toys for hours before you can mow the lawn, then take your pick from this list of outdoor toy storage ideas.

Bike Racks If your children are in and out all day playing on their bikes, you may find yourself constantly dragging them in the house to keep them secure, or tripping over them while they lay sprawled out on the front lawn. By installing a floor or wall mounted bike rack in the garden you can give your children somewhere to store their bikes during the day. No more propping bikes against walls, and getting in a tangle with one bike buried beneath the other. Riders simply wheel the front tire into the rack and the bike is stored in an upright position until it is needed again. Add a combination lock to the rack so your children can learn about the importance of security and practice locking up their bike when it's not in use.

Storage Bins What's biog, plastic, waterproof, comes with a lid, and best of all, is super cheap! A dustbin. They may not look attractive, but a brand new, never used for rubbish dustbin is perfect for storing toys in, especially long objects like rackets, cricket bats and spades. If you don't want your garden to look like the local rubbish tip invest in some plastic-friendly spray paint and decorate your bins in a range of colours. If you like to be super-organised you could allocate each child with their own coloured bin, or categorize toys by type: water play, balls and so on.

Laundry Baskets Plastic holey laundry baskets can be lashed to any upright post and are ideal for storing smaller toys like tennis balls, toy cars and water play items. Tie one onto each leg of the climbing frame and the toys stored inside will be sheltered from the worst of the weather.

Bike Sheds Small and shallow bike sheds are ideal for storing toys. The problem with larger sheds is they quickly become filled with clutter, making it hard to reach he toys stored at the back. They can also be intimidating for younger children to enter. Bike sheds tend to have large doors and are only around half the depth of a regular shed making it much easier to access all the toys stored inside.

Take the time to tailor your toy storage to the age and stage of your children and you will save yourself hours of effort over the course of the summer. Children are much more likely to play outside if they can readily access their toys without your help, and tidy up time will be a breeze if your children can reach all the storage options.
