So yesterday in my random posts about my latest and greatest Tweets, I mentioned that I had kicked my kids out of the house.
Believe me. It was necessary.
Well this weekend was so beautiful, I kicked them out of the house again. (Aren’t I a good mother?) But this time I sent them packing. Packing with toys.
I don’t know what’s happened with my kids. They used to LOVE to play outside. I could hardly ever get them off their bikes. But now, if they go outside and their aren’t any neighbor kids to play with they’re “boooooored.”
So this weekend I threw them out of the house with a bunch of their toys. And low and behold if those toys didn’t seem like brand new toys just because they were in a different environment outside.
So my Lazy Mom Tip is this…. give your kids’ toys a change of scenery sometime! Especially if they seem bored with the toys they have. Move them to a different room, put them outside for a sunny afternoon, re-arrange their playroom. Whatever!
I know some moms that rotate their kids’ toys. They’ll put some toys away in storage for a while and then when the toys that are left out seem old, they put those away in storage and bring out the ones that were tucked away for a while. I always hear these moms say that it “feels like Christmas morning” when the new toys come out of hiding.
So there’s a quick tip for you! I have lots more tips lined up for the coming weeks thanks to all of you wonderful lazy moms sharing them with me. So stay tuned!
