Tidying up with kids

Organise your child’s bedroom: big paper bags colourfully decorated

January is the perfect time of year for restoring order to your home. Sorting and putting things away is a great way to kick off the New Year on a positive note. When it comes to tidying up with children, however, it’s not as easy as it sounds! Young children in particular find it a lot more fun spreading their toys all over the house than putting them away afterwards. So we’ve got a practical solution for you: large, tear-resistant paper bags that you can draw on and decorate with our permanent markers. To help keep everything in order, the bags can be categorised by their contents and decorated with your child’s favourite designs. For soft toys, you could add a teddy bear face, for example, or an alphabet motif for Lego bricks. Get together with your child and think up some fun ideas. Since we’re using permanent markers here, don’t leave it up to kids to draw the designs, because the name says it all – these markers really are permanent! If little ones wish to join in, we recommend they use our edding Funtastics fibre pens for children. We hope you have lots of fun designing and tidying up together!
