Here you will find Outdoor Toy Storage Ideas for decks, patios, porches, and other outdoor spaces. If you’re like me the constant clutter of outdoor toys drives you insane.
Do you leave the toys outdoors and deal with the mess? Do you bring them into a mudroom and have to lug them outside every time the kids want to play? Do you clutter up your shed if you’re even lucky enough to have an outdoor storage shed?
Well, none of those solutions work for me. I don’t want toys all over the place outside, I don’t want to lug them around every time we want to use them, and I certainly don’t want my husband to have to deal with them while getting out one of his grills or lawn mower from our small shed. It’s his domain and I’m not going to clutter it up with all of the kid’s stuff. We do keep the bikes in there though lol.
There are some solutions I’ve come up with for hiding toy clutter outside and I’ll share them all below. Some great ways to hide outdoor toys include sheds, deck boxes, fencing, and there are even some tent style bike sheds! There are some great outdoor toy storage ideas for a variety of sizes of toys, all that is left to do is choose your favorites.

Just hide that toy mess!
Sometimes toys just won’t fit in anything. You know what I’m talking about. Water and sand tables, ride on toys, tricycles, over sized balls…it goes on and on and on. Most outdoor storage containers are designed for smaller items or garden tools, there aren’t many options other than storage sheds for bigger items that kids acquire and if a storage shed isn’t an option this may work for you. Well, this isn’t exactly a storage container, but it will get the bigger toys out of sight and let you beautify your outdoor space. It’s the perfect solution for parents who still want to have a social life and don’t always want the kid’s stuff out in the open.
