Santa is bringing more toys soon, so now is the time to be sure there will be plenty of room. So let’s organized the play room.
When sharing with brothers and sisters set up zones in the room so each child has their own space. In this play room the son has white shelves from The Container Store for his toys and books.
His sister has green shelves on the other side of the room for her dolls, toys, and library. The play table in the center is where they create crafts and enjoying playtime together.
Let your kids get involved in the editing process. Many times children get excited to know that their toys will be enjoyed by those less fortunate when donating to Goodwill or National Council of Jewish Women in Los Angeles. If the kids are too young, use gentle judgement when the little ones are way and let go of the toys that are not being used. This allows more room for the ones that are special and makes it easier for the kids to play with their favoriates.
And a great final tip for the holidays; Christmas morning ask the kids to let go of one toy to give more room for all the presents under the tree. It is a great way to teach organizing skill to last for years to come!
