Rotating Toys

Our living room was getting quite crowded and beginning to resemble a toy store... so after seeing an idea on Pinterest (of course!) I decided to separate Sam's toys and rotate them.  I got 4 bins and separated his toys so there is a nice variety in each. 
They are stored in the basement:

 Once or twice a week we switch bins so Sam gets a new variety of toys to play with.

New toys!:

Some toys still stay out all the time; books, puzzles, blocks, balls... but the rest are rotated.  It feels like we get new toys every week!  And it helps us keep track of the little pieces better.

  1. Rotating toy is something we used to do at the daycare I worked at and it worked wonderfully. The kids always thought we had cool new toys to play with. I rotate what toys my son has in the living room and this seems to help as well. I just bring out a few sets of toys at a time, so he can actually play with them instead of just scattering them all over the place.
