Over and over I get questions about my Toy Rotation. You all have asked me, what about…
- Multiple kids. You’ve wanted to know over and over how many toys should you have out if you have multiple kids (different ages, boys and girls, twins, etc).
- Sets. One mom specifically asked for a boy toy example. She said that all of the trains and car racing sets have a lot of parts that don’t easily fit in typical storage bags. I think whether you have boys or girls, trains or cooking sets, a lot of parts can be a challenge.
- Older kids. Most of my rotations have targeted toddlers and preschoolers, but what about kindergarten and beyond?
- Storage. Where do you put the toys that are out of rotation?! You’ve cried out, “I have no storage!”
Some of these questions I’ve responded to in the comments section of that original post, in direct emails, or even in follow-up posts. For example, in Why Your Toys Need A Makeover we touched on a multiple child toy rotation, sets, and storage. BUT, some of you want more! And I want to give it to you!
So, I decided there needs to be a “Toy Rotation – The Rest of The Story” post and I’d love for you all to help me write it!
If you’ve rotated toys at your house, you’re now an expert, so please share. You can contribute by emailing me directly at kim at thelittlestories dot com or through the contact page by July 9th.
- Please highlight one of the four areas of difficulty (multiple kids, sets, older kids, storage) you are addressing in your rotation.
- If you have pictures or links, please provide them too, because the more others can actually see your rotation, the more easily they can apply it to their own situation.
I can’t wait to hear from you!Email this article »
