Organizing your kid‘s room or personal space can really be quite a challenge. This is more so if you have more than one kid. The problem mostly with cleaning a kid‘s room is that it gets messed up again as soon as you‘re done cleaning it. Kids are not aware how important it is to have a clean room, and they can‘t exactly understand this if you explain it to them. What most mothers need to understand is that explaining things to kids alone wouldn‘t really make the picture stick. Kids follow more by example. Remember the phrase ”monkey‐see, monkey‐do”?
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).
Kid‘s toys are big business too which is amply proved by the millions of dollars that are poured into research for new toys and games to keep the industry alive and kicking. With so much competition around, one manufacturer tries to beat the other in innovative designs and technology that makes today‘s toys good not only for kids but for adults as well. Many times you see how a father would buy a complicated train set for his child but can‘t wait to get it set up so that he can play with it himself. All adults have a little bit of the kid in them and therefore we all love to see a new toy and how they work.
The first rule while buying toys is to select the area of interest of child. If child has a tendency to jump all over the place, it wouldn‘t be a bad idea to get him or her trampoline. Climbing frames is yet another recommended toy and browsing the internet will get you still acquainted to a larger variety of toys. But while buying these toys, the very first question you will need to ask yourself is whether those toys are safe. If you aren‘t sure about its safety then inquire to a toy expert about the same or get in touch with the manufacturers of the product.
When I was a kid, I never really had much toys so I guess I early on, I already knew to take care of the few toys that I had. My dad, who was a bit of a handyman, made me my own wooden toy box painted bright yellow with little compartments inside, which made toy keeping as much fun for me as playing. Now that I have two kids of my own, I have taken the values that I got from preserving toys from my childhood to present. While I can afford more toys for my children now than my parents from back then, I do not splurge and still keep a practical approach when it comes to getting the kids toys. Many of the toys that my seven year old has used from before is still being enjoyed by my four year old today.
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?
