I have an almost 1 yo adorable and wonderful baby girl who is also very destructive. Every day she tears apart the house. I have so much home school stuff that now I am getting nervous that she will get into the supplies and loose stuff or worse get hurt. Any good ideas for storing the supplies in a way that is secure but still easily accessible?
I have a 5yo, adorable, sweet child, who constantly takes things and hides them. Not intentionally, he just drops them when he's done and has no idea where they've gone. :( So he's not allowed a lot of things without supervision, because I need those things and need to be able to find them. That won't really work with a 1yo. I do agree with the lock or high up in a not-readily-accessible location.
We have those cheap build them yourself pantries with doors. Bought them at walmart and hubby and I put them together. They are sturdy enough and can be anchored to the wall. You can get them in a variety of finishes.
We use Velcro straps on the handles of cabinet doors. Other than that, we've split the supplies up: art supplies are in Tupperware-type containers with lids, unused papers & folders, etc are in the computer cabinet, while the books are on a high shelf of a bookshelf. Good luck.
sounds like my niece that lives with us, just not as bad. she is 2 & cute as a button but AWFUL(her mommy's fault all the way though)all at once. I have the worst time keeping her out of our hs stuff but have no doors to keep her out since our hs space is just the back part of our living room & I can't afford new cabinets just fir her. I never had that problem with mine but then she was a different type kid all around.
I think I may have to take all your advice and just lock it all up. lol. She is an adorable baby but she is a terror!
