I had a container for the outdoor toys, but it was still getting rainwater in it. How do you guys keep outdoor toys put away and safe from rain water? I can't seem to find a water proofed container.

What can I do next?

Perhaps you can find a waterproof grill cover that would fit over your toy box, or if not, a tarp.

I put all of our balls and such in a big, wheeled garbage can (like the schools use for outdoor equipment). The handles lock it shut and water hasn't gotten in yet. You could always put smaller toys in a container and set it inside on top of the bigger toys so they don't get stuck at the bottom...

Drill holes in the bottom of a plastic container (i.e. sterilite) - store it on something that keeps it from standing in water (i.e. those wood crate things they stack boxes on at Wal-Mart).

It doesn't keep water out, but all of our outside toys are hard plastic or metal - things that can tolerate getting wet, just not staying that way - and thanks to the drainage holes at the bottom, water doesn't stay in. A kid also can't suffocate.

Good luck
