I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and are having a relaxing week before the new year. We’re coming off of the kids’ birthday party and Christmas. Pre-birthday party, our toy level was fine. Now, we have way too much. We sorted through and got rid of some things, weeded out infant toys and took an additional bin to one of their grandparent’s house for them to use while they are there. It’s still a bit overwhelming to me.
The playroom is pretty well organized but I want to get some more shelves or bins or something. I’m also now putting a few toys in their bedrooms to play with while upstairs.
For toys that have lots of small pieces or are otherwise messy, they go in a closet so I can be sure to supervise their play.
And now, I’m considering rotating some toys in and out. Do you have a system in place for something like this? How do you do it? I want them to enjoy their toys without being overwhelmed by the sheer number.
Lastly — this site is now on Facebook. I know, I know…I’m really late with this. Humor me and “like” my site over there please? I’m planning to post smaller tidbit updates and deals I come across (without it being too deal-heavy, just the ones I’m doing myself) and photos and whatnot.
