I was so fed up with the scattered toys (that dont get played with.) I took everything out of the room to rearrange the furniture and I dont know that I am going to put the toys back in there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I was thinking about taking a "set" of kitchen bowls and spoons, some books to look at, some dress up clothes (a FEW), Mabye a nature table. (But the little one is 20 months and I dont know if she'd eat it. My 4 yr old would more likley put stuff in his mouth<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br><br>
I am going to set them up in stations and try really hard to work with the kids on everything having its own place.<br><br>
I hate toys. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I wonder what else I can find around the house to make a "station" with.<br><br>

This is on my list to do this week while I am on holidays.<br><br>
My boys have a walk in closet that has WAY too many toys in it right now. I am going to weed through that and then re-arrange the entire basement which is also full of toys. There are so many toys that they never play with and some that are just broken and taking up space!<br><br>
Your plan sounds great!

We have this "toy closet" that is where the kids keep all their toys. In the back are two bins filled with random toys that they <i>never</i> play with. I am getting rid of them tonight after the kids go to bed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

With my 3 yo, I take half her toys and put them in storage for a couple months. When I take them out and switch them she is so excited, it's like christmas every couple months. Plus it's a good time to go through them and get rid of some things.

I used to just sneak toys out of my dd's room when she was otherwise occupied, but now we go through about once a month and make a charity bag.<br>
It goes,<br>
me: "how about this one?" (holding up annoying or unused toy)<br>
She: "I want that!"<br>
me: "well, if you want to keep that one, then pick two others we can give to another kid for a present."<br>
she: "is it their birthday?"<br>
me: "yep."<br><br>
and so on and so forth.
