Tidy children's room - how to achieve this?

 

How to teach a child to keep the room tidy? What to do to make them excited to clean up after play time? First of all, it is important to plan the room properly. Make sure to divide the room into zones, e.g. a sleeping and relaxation zone, a place to play, a creative space for learning and a part separating the space for entertainment and regeneration. This solution will make the child naturally start to distinguish where in the room there is a place to play on a soft carpet, and where they will find pillows, a blanket and a favourite evening read. If you arrange the play space in an appropriate way, e.g. by purchasing a handy shelf for toys, the toddler will know where to put games and cuddly toys. It is very important that the furniture is within the reach of the child and that it matches his or her height. Then they are much more likely to be willing to clean. 

 

How to maintain tidiness in a children's room?

 

How to teach a child to keep the room tidy? How to develop good habits? A proven method will be to determine the location of each toy. Let your child decide together with you where their beloved book or board game will be. Thanks to this, the child will not have to wonder where the individual things are. The more you figure out, the less likely a room is to become a mess. Order in the room stimulates the child to think creatively and discover new possibilities for play. 

 

 

 

How to arrange a child's room?

 

What if our toddler has more toys than storage space? A good solution will be to buy additional cabinets and shelves, but it will not always be possible. What to do in that case? How to maintain a clean children's room? It's worth starting to rotate the toys. Hide some of them, e.g. in a basement or a wardrobe in the hall, and replace them every 3-6 months. The toddler will have time to miss the hidden treasures and will enjoy playing with them even more. Another option is to donate toys to those in need and to the family. If you do decide to take this step, be sure to do it with your child, let them decide which toys they are willing to pass on. You can do the same with the books our kids love so much. If a child decides to return some toys, it is a good idea to leave them for a transitional period, e.g. 2 weeks in the basement. It will be a godsend if the child changes their mind for some reason.  

 

How to keep a child's room tidy - best practices

 

If you want your child to be happy to clean their room, you must remember that their space should be practical and functional. What does it mean? How to maintain a clean children's room? First of all, the furniture should be adjusted to the age and height of the child, so that they can easily put something on a shelf or bookcase. Place the most frequently used items on the lower shelves. Leave the ones that the child reaches for less often on the upper shelves, thanks to which you will gain some space. 

 

Take care of the right amount of toys in the child's room, be moderate. Children get a lot of gifts, so it is not difficult to clutter up a child's room. Additionally, remember to sort the toys properly. Yes, to save space and facilitate cleaning. Show the child that we throw the stuffed animals into the basket and put the blocks in the yellow cardboard box. Such a system will make it much easier for a child to remember where to put what. 

 

However, remember how important creative space is for a child. Boredom and no limitations stimulate your imagination and creativity! Leave the child a free space that they can arrange on their own. Free shelves on a low shelf or a carpet that is pleasant to the touch will be perfect. 

 

 

 

Choose minimalism

 

The fewer things you have, the easier it will be to clean. Get rid of unnecessary decorations, pictures, knick-knacks. Learn to hide everything, put it back, and keeping your interior clean will be easier than ever. When arranging a child's room, think carefully about each element. There are many ornaments and gadgets on the market, but it's important to be modest. Otherwise, little practical ornaments and useless items will become a hotbed of dust in the toddler's room. You have to remember that your child's room will be overcrowded with toys, books and games anyway, so everything else should be minimised as much as possible. An ideal arrangement is one in which most of the elements are practical and functional. If I want to hang a poster on the wall, one with the multiplication table, letters of the alphabet or words in English. That's how to combine beauty and functionality. 

 

Subdued colours in a child's room

 

Pastel, subdued colours perfectly match the child's room.  How to choose the right wall colour for a children's room? Focus on calm, subdued colour palettes. Whites, greys and blues will look great. Are you afraid that your arrangement will be boring? Nothing could be more wrong! All accessories, bedding, pillows, blankets, and most of all the children's toys and books themselves, are most often in intense, expressive colours. All this will match perfectly with the plain, light walls. Combine wooden furniture with more intense accessories and you will get a unique effect. 

 

How to teach a child to clean - or ways to clean children's room

 

A room for a child is a special place. A space where they play, learn, rest and discover the world. It all leaves traces in the toddler's kingdom, such as scattered crayons, blocks and cuddly toys. So how do you teach a child to keep order? Is there any proven way? 

 

When to start teaching my child to keep the room in order?

 

Start from an early age! It is best to start such learning around 9-10 months of age. This is the time when a child begins to understand simple messages. Even though they do not understand the concepts of chaos and clutter, they are ready to start learning about cleanliness. How to start? Divide learning to clean into steps. Instead of teaching them how to clean, ask your little one to put their favourite toy on the shelf. Move from the level of the child's abstract concept of tidiness to a specific activity, such as putting their doll back into place. 

 

 

 

Learning through play

 

Many parents want their children's rooms to be clean and tidy. Often, however, they approach the topic the wrong way. By focusing too much on the goal, they ignore the right choice of method, for example, telling them to simply clean up toys. However, in the case of toddlers, learning in the form of play will be a much more effective method.

 

This requires more work and commitment on the part of the parent, but it will bring much better and longer-lasting results. That's why it's worth doing it! Make sure that your toddler has positive associations with keeping the room clean. In addition, it is worth investing in shelves with interesting patterns, which, even with their shape, will encourage the child to keep order. 

 

How to teach a child to keep order through play?

 

Wondering how to do it? Within any game you play with your child, add the final stage that will consist of tidying up. How can I encourage my child to get involved? Ask them to give you a toy and do it in the form of a puzzle, e.g. I wonder if you can find and bring me a stuffed kitten? Thanks to this, the child will treat your question as an interesting challenge and will be happy to play. 

 

Then you can start asking your little one to help clean up. Ask them to find you their puzzles and give a hint where they have their house, to indicate where they should end up. After a while, you can play the guess-guess game and ask: Where are the books in this room? Where can I find stuffed animals in your room? It is worth repeating such a game and verifying how much the child remembers and reminding them about the arrangement of objects. 

 

 

 

Cleaning and the rebellion of a two-year-old

 

Learning to clean older children can be more challenging, for example when your toddler enters a period of rebellion at two years old. Riddles and other similar solutions may not work for 2-3-year-olds.  In this case, how to teach a child to keep the room tidy? Give them a choice! 

 

Do not ask them to clean the room, but ask if they prefer to do it, before or after tea time, which part of the room would they want to clean first, whether they will start by collecting bricks or arranging books. 

 

With three-year-olds, you can start involving them in taking care of the whole house, not just the room. Show them what household chores are and why we're actually doing them. Additionally, try to make the child understand how important their help and participation is in taking care of the home. The preschooler will easily help you put dirty clothes into the washing machine, fold dry laundry or water plants. Remember not all at once. Slowly introduce your child to new activities and help them acquire new skills. Of course, the key will be to praise your baby! Positive reinforcement of their successes, thanks to which they will be much more willing to take care of the house.

 

A clean children's room - what to remember

 

First of all, make sure that your child associates taking care of order and cleaning in a positive way. Learning to clean should be calm, harmonious, safe, without nerves, screams and unpleasant orders. Be patient and give yourself and your baby time. Let them understand why it is so important for your whole family to keep your child's room in order. Treat the learning process itself as having fun and a great opportunity to build a closer relationship with your child. Thanks to our tips, the learning process to keep the room clean becomes easy and fun!
