One of the things that I consult with parents about is organizing their playroom. Often I see multiple deep baskets or bins that the toys are scooped up into at the end of the day.
Today I was at a house where things are getting organized for play. I commented on this great see through, three-sectioned toy bin and Mom went over to her 3 year-old and asked him what went in each section. He said, “Cars, animals and instruments.” I love how you can see into the bins so you know what options there are for play. When toys are organized by category, kids can more easily select objects for play and it helps them build these language categories.
If play is a child’s job, aren’t we all better at our job when we are organized?
Mom got this bin at Target.
