The kid‘s toys that we always choose to save are the ones that the gift giver has personalized. The kids love the toys that have been printed with their names or have been personalized to the sport they enjoy. The other toys that seem to find their way back into the toy box each year are the ones that are part of a special collection. Barbie was never important to my daughter. We always donated them. However my son still gets out every hot wheel car in his collection to play with at least once in awhile. Those toys have personal meaning. I can‘t bear to give them away. The toys that are adorned with the children‘s names end up finding their way to a high shelve to live out their lives.
Funny how teenagers and adults can still find themselves satisfied with the same kids toys offered to them when they were small. Though their likes are now focused on things that are useful and those popular in the society, kids toys are still as important as the latest gadget or the latest fashion trends. Males still prefer to have motorcycle or car toys in their closets as an ornament while females are happy shopping and receiving cuddly stuffed toys or dolls.
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
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.
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”?
My kids don‘t think I was ever a child. I really have very few things to prove that once I was full of imagination and love for toys. What better way to share memories with your children than with toys that are personal to your childhood? I will forever keep a box filled with these items for my grandchildren. I will keep those special collections and dry erase boards filled with pretend lesson plans to prove that their parents used to be cool, fun and filled with imagination.
