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”
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 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!

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”

I am soo ready for winter to be over and to spend more time outside and make use of all our new outside toys we got from Easter! I’m hopeful that the time is quickly approaching!
This week’s toy rotation actually had me a little stumped. I try and have a rounded selection of toys. From construction to imagination to fine motor to logic, and so on. She’s really not ready for anything literacy or number based, so we haven’t really gotten into that.Continue reading “Toddler Play Shelfie – April 29 – May 10”
