Buckets of fun - a storage solution for your playroom

Published: 16th April 2023

Not only are plastic buckets cheap, easy to clean, and colourful, but this unique storage solution also adds an element of fun to your kids' playroom.

How to Create a Pyramid-Shaped Stack

Creating a pyramid-shaped stack of buckets is simple and straightforward. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Gather the plastic buckets: You will need 15 plastic buckets of the same size. Choose buckets that are sturdy, colourful, and easy to clean.
  2. Arrange the buckets: Lay the buckets on their sides, with the open part facing outwards. Start by placing five buckets in a straight line on the bottom. Place four buckets on top of the first row, three on the second row, two on the third row, and a single bucket on the top. Make sure the buckets are evenly stacked and balanced.
  3. Secure the buckets: To keep the pyramid-shaped stack in place, drill holes where the edges of two buckets meet and then use cable ties to attach each bucket to its neighbours. Carefully cut the cable ties and ensure that there are no sharp edges exposed. Attaching the buckets in this way will prevent the stack from collapsing and ensure your kids' toys stay organised and accessible.

Benefits of Using Plastic Buckets

  • Cost-effective: Plastic buckets are an affordable storage solution compared to traditional toy boxes or storage bins. You can find them at your local hardware store, or even repurpose buckets you already have at home.
  • Easy to clean: Maintaining a clean and hygienic playroom is essential for the health and well-being of your children. Plastic buckets are incredibly easy to clean – simply wipe them down with a damp cloth, or rinse them out with water and mild soap.
  • Colourful and fun: Plastic buckets come in a variety of vibrant colours, making it easy to create a fun and visually appealing toy storage system. You can even involve your kids in the process of selecting their favourite colours and arranging the buckets, turning organisation into a fun activity.
  • Versatile and space-saving: The pyramid-shaped stack of buckets not only keeps toys organised but also saves space. The vertical design utilises the height of your playroom, leaving more floor space for your kids to play.
  • Encourages independence: The open design of the buckets allows children to easily access their toys without needing assistance from adults. This fosters independence and teaches kids the importance of organization and responsibility.
  • Choose your own colours and sizing - simply add more buckets to go higher with your bucket storage stack. Limited space available? Use fewer buckets for a smaller setup.
