Imagine stepping on a hard toy, or struggling to find that one toy your toddler is screaming for. (Eek!) We'd probably want to scream at our toys, especially when our toddlers and children leave them everywhere! When we have guests over, when we need to focus on getting things done in the house, or when we live in a small home, it's always better to have organized spaces and clever storage for toys!

Here is a roundup of ten genius DIY storage ideas I love. Try them out!

1. Rolling Toy Storage

To take advantage of the space in a child's room, try the rolling toy storage method. It's a great method that uses less space (under the bed for instance) and it's rather cool and easy to incorporate into any space.

(Check out this under-bed rolling storage box found on Amazon that we like.)

2. Bath Storage that Transforms for Guests (organizing with style)

This method organizes all the bath toys in a neat line of bins and prevents clutter in the bathroom. It's easy to set up, and you could use blue instead of white bins, and add nautical or aquatic themed stickers to the bins. 

3. Hanging Bedside Organizer

This idea uses a bit of fabric, and it's genius! It is also very easy and quick to make. The fabric slips in between the bed frame and the mattress. The pocket sizes and quantity can be easily adjusted to hold different sizes of toys. 

4. Vintage Crates

This storage idea allows you to create classy storage carts from old pallets. You can also add wheels to the crates so that you can easily move them around. This can make picking up toys after playtime fun. It takes a short time to make such crates from old pallets.

5. Stuffed Animal Swing

This stuff animal swing is an awesome idea and it is very easy to make. You will probably want a couple, more so if you have lots of stuffed toys to store. You will also need small pieces of woods, some hooks, and a clothesline to make this swing. 

6. Dress Up Closet

This pretty little Dress Up Closet is made up from a small old dresser and it's completely organized. You can also store hats, dresses, shoes, or anything else you need. It will also be easy to find dress up stuff and you will love that there’s a lot of more room in the tiny box when all stuff has a place of their own.

7. Window Seat

Turn your kids’ bedroom wall into a classy storage unit with bunk beds using a basic lumber and cabinets. (This is a more advanced project, but fun!)

9. Milk Jug Toy Scoops

Empty milk jugs can be easily turned into colorful totes for keeping small toys perfectly organized. They are lightweight so children can easily carry them around. You just need to cut a large opening in the side of the jug. Then paint the jug with non-toxic paint to make it look fun and cute. (Just make sure the edges of the cut jugs aren't sharp...)

10. Swoop
