The Life of a Super Organized Mum

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Just so that we are clear....

No way, no how is my house tidy all the time !! With a 2 year old tornado nothing stays tidy for long around here but there are a few things we do to make life easier and clean up quick.
Make your toddler help- Flynn had to clean up the above mess before he was allowed to go outside and start playing out there.

Get into the habit of trying to get them to pull out one thing/box/toy at a time. We are still working on this one, but we are getting there!!

Have ample and easy storage for the kids to be able to pack away themselves, for example this basket of toys sits in our family room under a coffee table and toys are changed regularly. It is nice as easy for Flynn to be to pull out and pack away on his own.

Make it fun!! Sing a pack away song and lead by example help the kids pack away as well instead of standing over them barking orders, they are a lot more likely to oblige of you make it a fun game.

I don't think it is easier to just do it yourself when the kids are in bed- it does not teach them any responsibility and you will soon get sick of cleaning up after everyone.

These are just a few things we have done at home to make packing away the toys easy !!
