Kids won't play with things they can't see, but you don't want to leave everything out in the open or it can become a disaster. Sarah Giller Nelson likes translucent plastic containers with lids (like Land of Nod's Top Box Storage Collection (starting at $8) because they can be stacked and you know what's in there. She recommends labeling the boxes so kids can start cleaning and organizing on their own — for prereaders, take a picture of the item and tape it onto the box with packaging tape.
