Organizing with Kids: Hat Racks

Hanging 3M Command hooks is a great organizing project to do with toddlers. It doesn't involve any hardware, and they can help place the stickers. Also, if they get excited and pull them off, it is easy to replace hooks with no damage to your walls.

My son was excited to help me hang hooks in his room to hang up his hats. I can add more hooks to the wall, and then remove them with no wall damage when he gets older.

3M hooks are sold many places, including hardware stores like Home Depot and discount department stores like Target. When purchasing 3M hooks, I have found it is good to estimate the hanging item's weight and purchase hooks that hold twice that weight. For example, buy 5-pound hooks to hold 2 and a half pounds.
