Make child friendly wardrobe hooks from toys

Repurpose some of the toys they no longer play with into fun hooks using Sugru Mouldable Glue. This is one of our favourite hacks and a really fun way to empower kids to enjoy taking more control and getting their jackets, bags and clothes in their rightful place (and not in a crumpled heap on the floor!). The added bonus is, of course, that there's no need to go shopping for new fittings - just have fun together choosing which toys to use!

Step 1 - Stick & shape

Start by collecting your pick of toys, single-use packs of Sugru (depending on how many toys you want to use as well as their size) and masking tape. Open the Sugru and separate into 3 or 4 balls. Stick and shape them to the base of the toy into a cone, and press firmly on the surface you want to stick it to.

Step 2 - Rub it

Once you are happy with the positioning, rub the Sugru so that it is smooth and neat.

Step 3 - Secure it

Using some masking tape, secure the toy so that it doesn't get accidentally pulled down (by gravity or a little cheeky someone!) and leave it to set for 12-24 hours.

Step 4 - It turns into rubber

After 12-24 hours, Sugru turns into rubber! Remove the masking tape and voila - you've got yourself a secure hook fixture. Now the kids can be empowered to keep tidy and they have more space to just be kids!
