Between the bikes for the three kids (and a few extras in different sizes seeing the youngest will grow into them) and way too many outdoor toys, we struggle to make sure everything has a place to go. Finding an effective way to store all of those toys is important. We don’t want them to get run over by our automatic lawn mower or blown away by the wind.
We also don’t want to store those toys inside the house or in our garage because the kids tend to leave those items in the way, creating a MAJOR tripping hazard.
Last year we built a kid’s garage for their bikes and toys, but here are some other GREAT ideas for storing toys outside so they don’t get ruined!
