Toddler shoes are adorable, petite…..and hard to find when they get lost. Do you spend too much time looking for that one lost shoe that seems to forever be missing? I did when my kids were little. Even with bins, baskets, and shelves available, shoes never seemed to get put in their place.
Solve the lost shoe annoyance by providing fun shoe storage containers and see if it helps get your toddler (and preschooler) more excited to help. It’s never too early to begin teaching kids to be responsible and organized.
Here are five simple ideas of ways to store toddler shoes…..without resorting to compartmentalized hanging shoe bags!
Basic! Give each child their own shoe rack but make it memorable. Nothing boring about this happy pink and white bunny shoe rack.
Hidden! Toddlers love to play hide-and-seek and covered storage is great for messy shoes. Use pockets for seasonal shoe storage and toss the everyday shoes in the middle. Keep the ottoman in the mudroom or near the main entrance and shoes seldom get lost.
Perfect! Storage for shoes also includes drawers for mittens, hats, scarves, and other outdoor necessities. Easy for toddlers and kids to use. Holes in the dividers keep air circulating.
Organized! Once toddlers get a little older, they can learn to store shoes in a drawer with built-in shoe racks. Use a drawer or bin closest to the floor for easy access.
