Rotate Your Kids Toys

Keep the toy box fresh and "new" for your kids, and have fewer toys to clean up. You can do this by putting away half of their toys. When they tire of the toys they have out, begin to rotate the toys by putting a few "new" ones out and tucking away some of the toys they have been using for another time.

I also do this with my dogs' toys. Every couole of months or so I pick up all their toys except one or two of their favorites, and switch them out from a bin where I keep the rest of them. Sure saves from buying new ones every time I turn around!

Now the only times they get actual "new" ones is on their birthdays and Christmas!

I used to do the same thing. I now have grandchildren, so it was a long time ago. I would fill a paper bags with pop-it beads, another with doll toys, etc. After a number of months I would take them down and the kids were thrilled. They acted as if the toys were new. Then I would put away different bags of toy for awhile.
