No sooner do you get the toy room organized than the kids seem to tear it apart quicker than you got it together. Here are a few tips to break this crazy cycle!
1. First weed through the items that your kids have outgrown. If these toys are still in the mix they are simply getting shuffled around for no reason.
2. Give your kids less options. Kids get overwhelmed just like we do. If they have too many options it is harder to decide what to play with. Take out half of their toys and put them on a rotation. Once they start getting bored with what is available, bring out the toys in storage and it will be like Christmas all over again.
3. Lead by example. Help with clean up before moving on to something else. Teach your kids the maintenance end; they learn by example not by constant nagging!
