Free Printable: Picture Labels for Drawers or Shelves

Our children have an internal sense of order, which we can support by providing them with organized spaces and models for putting our belongings away.

Today we have a free printable to share with you: labels for drawers or shelves.

While we encourage you to be mindful and deliberate about the toys you put out for your child and the time you spend with them, as they grow older, we will see how capable they are of selecting materials to work with and then putting them away.

Introducing shelf labels

Depending on the age of your child, you might include them in placing the labels to show where you already keep these items. Then show them how the labels will help identify where to put things away.

When you sort clean laundry, help your child match the category of clothing with the shelf label. 

We have created labels for clothing and toys. Other areas you might like to label could include the bathroom and your kitchen and dining materials.
