Toy Takeover? Try This Trick & Take Back Your Home!

Do your kids have a ton of toys? Does it seem like all that happens is they end up all over the floor – all over the house? Then, next thing you know, it’s Christmas or their birthday again, and here comes more new stuff! Where will you put it all? How many times a week will YOU have to pick it all up and when will it stop??

One thing that I have found works well, is rotating out the toys. Here’s how to do it:

·        Start by going through all their toys and weed out the ones that they NEVER play with anymore. You can either throw them out or donate them, depending on their condition.

·        Next, separate the toys into groups. Make one group of their 3 to 5 favorite toys, and put all of the other toys into a separate group.

·        Grab at least 3 large bins and put at least one of their favorite toys into each bin. Then, start adding toys from the other group into each bin until all of the toys are in a bin.

·        Now only one bin of toys should go in their toy box or toy area. The other 2 or more bins should be put away in a closet or other hiding spot where your child won’t see it.

·        Once a week to once every other week, rotate out the toys. Once your child has gone to bed, take all the toys currently in the toy box, put them into a designated bin, and place the bin in your hiding spot. Then, grab one of the other bins that you have hidden away, and put those toys in the toy box instead. In the morning, it will be like Christmas when your child sees toys that they haven’t seen in a long time and perhaps have even forgotten about.

This is an especially great solution for babies and toddlers. When there are too many toys for them to choose from, they tend to become overwhelmed and try to play with everything at once – hence the toys everywhere, covering every square foot of floor space in the house! The rotation gives them choices without being overwhelmed and cleanup is easier for you too! I’d say that’s a win!!

My son did cut my daughter's hair - and his own....

My kid’s haircut. He was so proud that I couldn’t be mad. All I could do was laugh. 🤣

This looks like a cut my daughter gave herself once! 🤣

Lashae Mcardle this reminds me of a certain little girl...🤔💓😂

My daughter had the most beautiful curls. I was always afraid to introduce her to scissors. Well her Parents as teachers lady gave her a lesson on using scissors. The rest is history. New haircut it was. But the curls came back thicker and curlier than ever.
