Tonight after work I switched out toys. That means that the toy box that had ALL Star Wars toys was put in a bin that went back down in the basement and other toys were brought back up stairs. I rotate toys every couple of weeks, sometimes sooner, and sometimes later. The kids have soooo many toys that when I rotate them this way it seems like they are new again. They play great for awhile with them. I know I need to switch out toys when they are getting restless and won't play with the toys in the baskets.
It took some time to organize all the toys. We separated them by theme and than I bring out one or two different themes at a time. The only problem that I am having is that if I put some toys in their rooms to play with upstairs, but they never stay up there to play with them. I should be so happy that they want to be under foot all the time. My hope was that they would stay up there for 10 minutes to play quietly. I know sometimes that my vision of what I would like to happen is only a fantasy.
So this was my Best Shot Monday, 10 minutes of peace while old toys were given a new life tonight.
Visit Tracey at Mother May I for other great BSM.
