My two very girly girls have a very big obsession about jewellery. It doesn’t matter if it is my necklaces and bracelets or the costume jewellery that they have, which has to go with every dressing up outfit that belongs to them (which is a lot by the way).
I love the fact that my two go all out when they dress up, which is pretty much every day, but oh my god, their stuff gets left everywhere! Big plastic rings are often fished out from under sofas, necklaces and bracelets are lost down the back of beds nearly every day.
I gave them both one of my old jewllerely boxes to put all their stuff in, but it just overflows, gets left on the floor and then, like a magnet, I will no doubt stand on something. This results in a cry of ‘I can’t believe you have broken my beautiful (plastic) diamond ring again’ and I am off in the hunt for the super glue, again.
I needed to get this jewellery off the floor, tided up and somewhere where they could easily put it away and reach for it when they were after that special Sofia the First bracelet.
On one of my many lunchtime browses of Wilko (I need to buy shares in that place I’m in there so much) I found these adhesive hooks. At £1.99 for a pack of 6 these were perfect. So that night as soon as I got home I set about figuring where to put them.
In my youngests room she has this lovely wardrobe at the end of her bed, and I thought this would be a great place to add the hooks. It was in easy reach for her, so with her help, of course – doesn’t every 4 year old want to stick things together, we placed the hooks on the side of the wardrobe. It took less than five minutes to put them up.
She loved the idea of these hooks and right there and then she set about organising her jewellery collection, bless her. This girl has definitely got some of my genes, and weirdness of getting over excited about organising things.
This was so simple, easy and quick. Perfect!
My eldest has now asked for me to do this in her room. I think she got a bit jealous when she saw her sisters collection lovingly displayed.
Do you use hooks in your kids rooms? I would love to hear about how you use them. Please comment and share.
Until next Friday.
