The playroom is really colorful so I thought some paint chip labels would be perfect. With pictures and words so none of the kids have any excuses for not helping pick up!
I had a pile of paint chips that have been collecting in the garage in lots of different colors.
I just went into my Mac word program and typed up what was in all the bins. I used a simple arial font in 68 pt. I have a kindergartner so I thought the words with the picture would help him recognize the names of the toys.
I took a picture of what was in each bin. Then printed it off them off in iPhoto using the contact sheet setting.
After cutting out the words and picture I taped them to the paint chip.
Then stuck them into a laminating sheet, 4 would fit into each sheet.
Ran the sheet through the laminator.
Cut out the labels.
Then I taped them onto each bin. Easy, cute and colorful!
Now my kids can't whine and say they don't know where anything goes!
I took lots of pictures of the new Playroom today and will have a whole tour post coming up Friday! I used most of the same stuff from our old playroom and added a few touches since it's a bigger space.
