I am trying a new tact with the toy management at our house. We always seem to have everything out all at the same time. I either make it too easy for the kids to get things out or too hard for me to put them back. This time I have opted for something my mother did. Drawstring bags. I made a heap of them the other day and now everything is contained in it's own little bag. So far so good. We have managed to have one toys mess at a time and it's still fun for the kids to put them back in their bags!
