How To Store And Organise Kids Bath Toys

I used to love bathtime when the kids were younger, we had so much fun together.  We would sing together, splash and play.  Then when they were older and could safely sit by themselves I would give the bathroom a little clean, while they would happily continue to play.  I had 3 kids under the age of 2 and each had their own bath toys, we had a good collection! However it was challenging to store and organise kids bath toys tidly.

My kids are older now and rarely use the bath, toys were donated a long time ago, but I used a delicates washing bag, I sewed fabric loops onto each end which hung off 2 suctioned hooks, it allowed the toys to drip and dry through the bag (similar to the first idea below).  Now I have learnt of so many more great ideas, I’ve shared a variety of creative ways to store and organise kids bath toys below:

Tubs on a rail – Drill holes into the bottom of the tubs and hang on a rail.  These tubs are from an overseas Ikea, however I’ve searched the Australian Ikea and can’t find anything similar, but I think this is so beautifully organised – image via blue i style.

Bath Toys and Accessories for your Kids

Create special moment with your little one playing and splashing in the bath together. The mats are great to stop the kids from slipping in the tub and we love the Pineapple Heads Body wash, they’re made from natural ingredients and no nasties, like parabens, PEGS, petrochemicals, silicones and other yucky stuff.

Great ideas – I was just looking around for these kinds of things the other day. I decided to use the 3M hooks and basket idea. Suctions cups never stay put for me. I found a cute blue wire basket from BigW that matched our bathroom decor, so it’s a little stylish at the same time.

I originally had a couple of hooks and a peg basket, but the suction cups were massive, heavy duty ones from Bunnings and didn’t work well on the tiles (which I assume are too textured). now we just have the peg basket loose, and it’s become a toy itself, used for “fishing up” the toys at the end of bath time. Good for my toddler’s fine motor development 🙂
