Toy Box Cleaning
If your child’s toy box is jammed packed with toys, maybe it’s time to donate some of them! Even as adults it’s easy to remember just how hard it was for us to give up our favorite toys when we were children, so be easy on them as you go through this process. You know your child better than anyone, so you can either include them in the cleaning or do it on your own.
Empty the toy box and start with the toys you found at the bottom. Odds are, the toys found at the bottom of the box have been there for a while. Start with them. Ask your child if they would like to donate those toys to other children. Let them know how important it is to donate them and how happy they can make other children if they gave them the toys.
While the toy box is empty, wipe down the inside and wipe off the toys to make sure everything is clean. Finally, consolidate all the toys that can be donated and take them to the nearest donation center.
