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?
From Baptism days, birthdays, Christmas, or any special day, there are definitely various occasions that would warrant giving kids toys to children. Since kids grow up fast and change toy preferences easily, a lot of parents find it frustrating to keep all those kids toys without having to resort to throwing out some. Moreover, there‘s also the constant struggle to teach kids to pick up their toys after playtime. Before you become too frustrated with trying to keep your house free of clutter, here are some handy tips you can follow to help you efficiently organize your children‘s stuff.
The first step is typically the hardest ‐ examining each and every toy available. The goal here is to determine which toys are usually used by the kids so you can separate the frequently used ones (and store the others that aren‘t). Apart from being a keen observer during your child‘s playtime, it will help a lot if you talk to your kids. Ask them about their favorite toys and let them determine stuff that they‘re willing to let go or give away. Aside from being able to minimize the clutter, this can also be an exercise to teach the kids about the value of giving toys to others, as well as weighing which ones are more important and valuable.
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.
My children have thousands of toys. Each Christmas, birthday or generic holiday in between grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends load them up with the latest toy fad. One year our son ended up with two dancing Boohbah toys. Who in the world needs two of these creatures? Each year right after Thanksgiving we sit down as a family and decide what we must keep, what we can throw out and what is still okay enough for donation. I will admit I have one child who would toss it all except her dry erase board. The other is so wrapped up in his toys he wants to keep even the tiniest of broken pieces. One thing that we can come to a final agreement on is that there is someone who wants toys that won‘t have any this year and we have an abundance. The other thing we agree on is that the holiday and coming year will bring many new toys for them to enjoy.
We should start by keeping track of how many and what kinds of toys of our kids have. Let us have a record which contains information such as when we bought it and when it was broken. You could also include when a toy is lost or if it would be found. It is like a record of incoming and outgoing toys from our kid. So why do we need to have a record? From our record we could easily find out details. How long one toy does lasts in my kid? How frequent do we buy them toys? The record would tell the toy‐playing‐and‐breaking‐pattern of our kids.
