Metal Buckets

If your kids love to play outdoors, chances are they have toys that have dirt and mud that you don't want to have inside the house. Solve this problem by having a special "toy station" by your door where they can leave their toys. You may use metal buckets placed on an open shelf for this purpose. Label them accordingly so your kids will know where to place and get their toys.
