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!Continue reading “January Toddler Toy Rotation”
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 monthContinue reading “November Free Play Toy Rotation”
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.Continue reading “2-year-old Toy Rotation: Time for a New System”
We are all looking for mom hacks to make life just a little bit easier and let me tell you the very best one in my books is free play toy rotations! It takes the tiniest bit of work upfront to move the toys around. Then just watch the magic as old toys become new!

After being away for vacation I knew that I wanted to freshen up our play space, but to be honest I was exhausted. There is never more truth than needing a vacation after vacation than when you travel with toddlers!
I knew we needed some tried and true easy favorites out on the shelf this week and I didn’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about it either.Continue reading “Toddler Play Space: Toy Rotations at 23 months”

Free Play is my number one thing I want Bitty to learn. Not only is it so important for her brain development but its also such a joy to watch her and see what new interest she has in a toy or what new game she has created for herself! There is also something to be said about the few moments of alone time it gives me. 😉Continue reading “Toddler Free Play Shelf : Toy Rotation : June Part 2”
This weeks toy rotation came together really easily! I think the trick of always having out the animals, some kind of loose part play and the play silks was the trick! It made it really easy to fill the remaining gaps in her play shelfContinue reading “Play Shelfie : Toddler Toy Rotation : June Part 1”
The toy closet keeps all her toys together and organized so that come rotation day finding what we want to put out on her play shelf is a snap! We don’t use a complete bin system, I’m sure we will get to that but I currently prefer doing custom rotations and my organization system is set up to suit that!
You’ll have to forgive the poor quality photos…its a closet. The lighting just isn’t up to par. lolContinue reading “Toddler Toy Closet Organization”
