We could tell them that taking care of their toy is like us taking care of them. But let us be worthy models for our kids. If our kids see us not organized with our own stuff how could they follow us if we do not practice what we preach?
Also one great way to have your kids clean after their mess is to decorate their room with nice and colorful palaces to place their toys. Kids‘ toy storage, a deviation from kids storage bins are popular among Moms. These boxes or shelves are made in such a way that it‘s appealing to kids‐‐ appealing enough that they will let you put it in their room. Believe me, these storages are life savers for Mom. No more stepping on that toy car ten times a day or seeing Mrs. Potato head in your kitchen. A lot of these things are sold over the internet, or you can go to your favorite furniture shop to search for toy storage.
I also got my dad to make another toy chest, light blue this time, with the kids name stenciled on the lid. I also had some photos of them tucked inside, and on the chest are the same compartments which made it seem as if the toys had their own ”rooms” which I used to enjoy so much. Now my kids also look forward to storing their toys after playtime as I used to when I was a kid! My kids also know that they will only receive new toys during a handful of special occasions, namely on their birthdays, after the school year ends, and during Christmas. I rarely give them toys on impulse, so they know that they have to take care of the toys that they have at hand. It might sound frugal, but more than that I believe that the children get a bigger lesson on responsibility by employing these techniques.
The next step is to watch our kids when they play with their toys. We should observe closely if our kids intentionally break their toys. Sometimes, kids do this because they seek attention from us and they see toys as platform to release pent up emotions. Once this is the case, it is better that we spend more quality time with our kids. In some cases, kids‘ toys will get damaged because they played it too much, which is not really bad but if this happens frequent, we should talk to our kids and tell them the value of their toys. It is never too early to teach our children responsibility
Experts say that playing with toys is essential to a child‘s development starting from the infant stage. Kids‘ toys like rattles, mobiles, toy teethers, and key rings help babies connect sound, sight, taste, touch, and smell to objects. Rattles do help them learn about cause and effect not to mention introduce colors and shapes. Color and shape recognition, spatial relationship awareness, hand‐eye coordination, and other motor skills are exercised through playing with educational toys that were made specifically to enhance those skills. There are also kids‘ toys that enhance the kids‘ imagination and creativity. Some toys even teach them patience (think floor puzzles) and reinforce the concept of hygiene (think bath and tub toys).
That‘s what you need to remember. Showing kids how to clean and maintain the cleanliness of their room will make them follow this important routine. You also need to make cleaning fun. Make it more like playing than actually cleaning. Have a fun music play in the background, and play with the toys as you go about the cleaning. Tell them stuffs like how dolly likes to stay in the top shelf, and that‘s her permanent place from now. Or how Mr. Cowboy thinks of the toy box as his home, and that he needs to go home right after playing. Things like these will be remembered by your kids, and they wouldn‘t think of cleaning as a chore anymore.
