New Toys You Don't Have To Buy!

Do your young kids have a TON of toys?
Does it seem like they get bored of their new toys after a week or 2?
Is your house getting cluttered by them?

If your child(ren) is anything like mine, then you answered yes to all of these questions.

Well here is an idea that may help. It came from my brother's wife's mother (lol). Take half of your pile of toys and put it in the garage or storage closet. In a couple of weeks or months, when the kiddos seem to be getting bored of the ones they have, swap the stored ones for the ones in the house and they'll feel like they have new toys to play with. I'm not sure if you could do this for older children, but I think it'd work great for early school-aged children, toddlers and babies. It will also clear out some of the clutter that might build up in the corner of your living room.
