I’ve got it! Laundry baskets! No, I’m not planning on hanging out the wash too. A laundry basket makes the best toy bin for all the outside toys. You can find them tall and skinny or short and wider depending on what type of storage space you have. Get a strong plastic one with comfortable grips and nice size holes. Pay a few extra dollars for a sturdier one and it will last longer. They are so easy to clean with a hose and will air out quickly in the sun. Toss in all the trucks, balls, horseshoes, golf clubs, bubbles and other back yard toys.
Come play time, carry them out and dump. The kiddos have immediate access to their stuff and clean up is so simple for them to help pitch in. We have one with regular toys and another for all the “wet play” toys for the pool and sprinklers. They fit nicely along the wall of the garage all year long.
