Toy Storage Buckets

Are your kid’s toys cluttering your backyard or garage? Clean up the yard and have a designated space for your kid’s small tools by creating a designated bucket for them! Using buckets and cutting out labels with a cutting machine you can make a bucket for any toys your kids have! Balls, bubbles, trucks, cars, etc! Then organize them all on a wire shelf and your good to go! The hardest part will be getting your kids to put the toys back where they go…Sigh.
