Our Halloween Toy rotation is filled with lots of orange, plenty of halloween themed loose parts and more pumpkins than a 3 year old can count!
I love a good theme. I find reasons to do themes all the time and holidays are just kind of a no brainer! A Halloween toy rotation is super fun because you have lots of things you can use as inspiration! You can draw on all things spooky, play with plenty of pumpkins, or just a simple color pallet of orange white, and black!
It happened. Over the winter we were bitten by the Frozen bug. A princess Toy rotation seemed like a no brainer now that we have started to accumulate more princess toys. This is a theme that I feel like a lot of little girls would love and it was a HIT for us.
In an effort to cheer us up and get us through the last dregs of winter I planned a Springtime toy rotation! Here in Colorado, we have been teased with a few beautiful days, but they are always followed by cold and dreary days as well. So we needed something fun and bright for those grey days.
I spent some time updating our toy shelves for our January toddler toy rotation. I wanted to mix in some of her new toys from Christmas, but I also wanted to make sure and save some of them for later on down the road. Especially because we will need some good distractions with baby Bean due next month!
With it getting darker and cold so early in the day we are inside more than I would like so our December toy rotation is set up for her to play independently, but also offers some easy ways for us to play with her.
The start of the holiday season means that our November toy rotation is sure to be played with a little less than usual, and I don’t mind. Last month our October toy rotation definitely got a little stale by the end of the month so some extra excitement and loved ones to play with will surely help keep things more interesting this month
We swear by toddler toy rotations in this house. Yes, toddlers will play with anything, but it’s just like magic when you pull out some “new” toys and they get so engrossed in independent play. We rotate once a month, with a mid-month refresh if anything is getting really stale.
Now that Bitty is starting to show more interest in her toys and is engaging with them more. I will be slowing down our toy rotations. Our 2-year-old toy rotations will be once a month with a small refresh mid-month if I feel that she is getting bored with certain items. With that said we will probably also have more items out during a given rotation to offer more options.
