Toys, toys and more toys!

Toy storage.

Q: What do you recommend for toy storage?

A: The first choice for many is a toy box.   This is a nice option for larger, bulky toys.  However, smaller toys and parts of toys can get lost in the bottom of a toy box.  

My favorite pick is a shelving unit with baskets or bins.  Group like items together in each bin and label (cars, blocks, legos, dolls, etc)  This storage solution can make it easy to find a toy, play and clean up.  As your kids grow, the baskets can still hold small games and cards and the shelves are great for large board games, puzzles or books.

I also recommend a yearly review of toys.  If your child no longer uses a toy, consider donating it. Possible recipients include your church nursery or preschool, the Lighthouse foundation or the Sojourner House.   Toy donations benefit children in need and offer your child a lesson in giving. 

Using a combination of a toy box, shelving unit and yearly donations should help you manage your toy storage.
