Once you get to the point where you have too many toys to contain to any one area of your home, there comes a time where you have to figure out where to put everything. Which types of toys do you want to store where?
I like to organize our house into "stations," and although I will periodically rotate the stations from room to room, I like to keep all of the art supplies together, all of the musical instruments together, and all of the Barbies and Disney Fairies in their own little worlds. It also makes it so much easier to find things and put things away when you know that ALL of the Barbies and acessories belong in one particular room at the end of the day.
|does anyone else see that cube in there??? how did that happen?!?!|
Finally, and this is an important one,
Most toys in our house collectively belong to both kids (or so I tell them), but each child has a few favorites that she is not required to share. I am always sure to store these toys accordingly!
