Learn how to neatly store Hot Wheels tracks and cars in a kid’s bedroom so they’re easily accessible, no matter how small the space is.
Happy Quick Win Friday! Today is the day of the week where you get a super quick and easy organizing project that takes 30 minutes or less and packs a big punch. Today we’re tackling those Hot Wheels race tracks and mounds of cars piled up in your kid’s room. You may have tried specialty organizers for the cars and tracks before, and if your household is like mine, those containers didn’t stand a chance.
My son was not interested in separating each car into individual slots, nor was he excited about separating track pieces by size. Those specialty containers went to the donation center in no time because they were never getting used and all the cars were getting pushed into a corner.
If you’re nodding your head right now, I’ve got a better solution for both you and your kiddo. This is the easiest way to store Hot Wheels race tracks and cars and an even easier way for your child to clean up their room after playtime is over. And in my book, anything that helps kids clean their own rooms is a winner.
Easy Hack For Storing Hot Wheels Tracks And Cars
All you need are two 41-quart underbed storage containers. I got these bins from Target and used the drive-up service so I didn’t even have to go inside the store and try to stuff them into a shopping cart. Talk about easy, right?
You’ll need one container for the tracks and another container for the cars. You can go a step further and add small bins inside to divide by category, but remember that the goal is to get kids to clean up on their own. Don’t make it complicated.
The lids keep the containers closed and free of dust, and they slide right underneath your child’s bed. Up until recently when I made a weapon wall out of pegboards, we had been keeping Nerf guns and light sabers in these underbed containers, too. They’re great for any toy that’s longer than 12 inches and hard to store.
