Sparkle Crafts: Kid Made Dresser Drawer Labels

In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story, “The Organizing Bug”, Sylvia and Martin catch the organizing bug, using 3×5 notecards to sort and inventory various areas of their home.

The best kind of organization is the sort that the little ones can get behind. If they’re invested – especially when it comes to the various spaces that they use – they are oh-so-much more likely to use the system in place.

For little ones, whether they are just becoming independent in getting dressed or they are starting to help with the laundry, labels for their dresser drawers can be a big help. A little visual reminder of where things are and where things go.

You Will Need

Craft Wood Circles

Acrylic Paint and/or Sharpie Markers

Command Strips


What To Do

If you’re planning to use paint, first paint a solid layer onto one side of the craft circles. Let it dry.

Designing Dresser Drawer Labels

Paint or draw the design onto the wood circle – short sleeve shirts, pants, pajamas, etc. You can do it yourself or enlist help from an older kid.

Stick the dresser drawer labels onto the dresser. 3M Command strips are nice here, since they make removal easy and don’t damage the furniture.
