Ginger Snap Crafts: spring cleaning & organizing in the kid’s bathroom #EasterSmiles

spring cleaning & organizing in the kid’s bathroom #EasterSmiles

Aren’t you just loving this spring weather?
If you are like me, spring puts you in the mood to work!
I love getting outside, working in the yard
& also working inside the house
doing a little spring cleaning & organizing!

On the schedule this week:
the kid’s bathroom

bath toothbrushes


The first thing on the list was cleaning out all the cabinets & drawers.
My 5 year old daughter was my little helper on this project.
She helped me count how many toothbrushes we had in the kid’s bathroom!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10….
ELEVEN toothbrushes!!!

(Ummmm….last time I checked I only had 5 kids!} Winking smile

bath old toothbrushes 

I think we pick up toothbrushes at the dentist, school, etc
& somehow the old ones never get thrown out!  Yuck!
So we decided it was time to throw them all out & get some new ones.
Only FIVE this time though!  Seriously, we were hoarding a lot of toothbrushes! Smile

So the next day I headed to Walmart to pick up some new toothbrushes
& some other items to help organize/clean my kid’s bathroom.

bath colgate toothbrushes

I came home with these FIVE Colgate toothbrush.
Did you see the big Easter displays Colgate had up last week?
Our Walmart had already put theirs away,
but it was still super easy to spot the Colgate products.
For my younger two kiddos I purchased the
Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants
battery powered toothbrushes.  They LOVE them!!!  As you can tell! Smile

I also picked up some new towels for the kids.
Love all the bright, fun colors! Smile

bath towels  bath towel hooks

My hubby made me this cute towel rack with 5 hooks for 5 kiddos.
Each hook has their name on it, so they know exactly were to hang their towel.
So after this spring cleaning the bathroom should stay clean, right? Winking smile

I also had each child pick a “bathroom” color. 
I gave each child the same color towels & toothbrush.
So now I’ll know exactly who didn’t put their stuff away!

While I was in a cleaning/organizing mood
I also changed out our cheap-o shower curtain rod.

bath before

For this space extender shower curtain rod that I found while I was at Walmart.
The pictures don’t do it justice.  I love it….makes a huge difference.

bath after

Another simple re-do I did while I was cleaning/organizing
was painting our little red stool with a fresh coat of red spray paint.
This is the same stool I used at my Grandmother Ault’s house
when I was little & now my kiddos are using it!  So neat!Smile

  1. Awesome!!! Let me know if that curtain rod works for you long term... ours never did actually stay upright- it always leaned over... but we got ours from Bed Bath and beyond- so maybe walmart is better! YOur LO is so cute brushing his teeth! Great job- I also love the towel hanger.. great idea!

  2. Love the towel hanger! The whole bathroom looks great...that early morning shopping trip was totally worth it ;) I've been doing a little spring cleaning here and there but have a long way to go still!

  3. I really love your towel rack and coloured towels. My girls also have a hook but your rack looks so much better. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That towel hanger is my FAVORITE! I have got to recreate that for my next place. And I love how the shower looks so much bigger now. I must do that as well!

  5. I especially love the colored towels. I may have to borrow that idea!! Good thinking.

  6. Wow, I love the idea of one color per child. Not only does it help with the organization but makes it so cute and colorful. Great job!!

  7. All that spring cleaning is very inspiring! I need to get my booty in gear! New toothbrushes are a must! :)

  8. It's still been cold around here so haven't felt completely in the mood for spring cleaning yet. And the past 3 weekends we've either had guests over or went away, and again this weekend guests. I need my alone time!

    Love the colorful towels! I love color! All I'm missing are the 5 kids to justify getting some, hehe!

  9. Oh I love your towel hook! I need to do some Spring cleaning around here. I'm sure I'll find just as many toothbrushes ;)

  10. Love the towel hooks and the bright towels! Your idea of color coordinating the towel and toothbrush is a great one ... I think I should do that with my three youngest who all share a bathroom.

  11. How did you do the names on the personalized towel rack for the kids?

  12. According to a recent survey, spring-cleaning is not just done during March or April. best electric pressure washer
