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.
While the kids‘ bedroom/quarters should be your main storage for keeping children‘s stuff, you can also keep some in the family room and the bathroom. However, make sure to minimize the clutter as much as possible. In bathrooms, for instance, designate a bucket that will be used mainly for storing toys your kids use during bath time. As for the family room, you can also keep some toys in a cabinet or invest in an affordable toy bin you can easily hide in the room.
For example, the Sylvanian Family has a set of kids‘ toys that teach them the values of a family. After all, these toys belong to different families and they all live happily together in a place called Sylvania. On the other hand, the construction toys from Knex improve the scientific and technological aptitude of the kids as they think about building structures from micro units. Naturally, playing with these toys makes a kid more knowledgeable and understanding.
We should remember that maintaining kids‘ toys is a process, take it one step at a time. We should start by having a ”toy box” where our kids will place their toy once they finish playing with it. Another good way on promoting to our kids how to take care of their toys is taking part of their ”toy maintenance” like joining them when they are wiping their toys wit when it gathered dust. We should make them feel that they could have fun when they maintain their toys.
Although toy storage can be quiet expensive, you don‘t have to spend a lot of money on it. There are a couple of ways to keep your kid‘s room organized even without purchasing toy storage. You know those clear boxes used for shoe storage? You could always use those keeping your kids‘ toys, especially for the little toys that would get lost in big toy boxes. You can have one kind of toy per box. Like, one box for building blocks; one box for toy cars and one box for art supplies. This way, your kids can just grab one and play. No need to take all toys out, unlike if you‘re kid has only one box for all the toys.
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?
