The arrival of warmer temperatures is a great excuse to do some thorough spring cleaning around the house, especially in your child’s room or nursery, where items have a tendency to pile up (believe us, we know!) — here are some no fail techniques for spiffing up your child’s room at the start of a new season:
First, it’s time to get rid of what you don’t need or have room for anymore. That includes broken toys, toys they simply no longer play with and outgrown clothes. Donate what you can and recycle the rest. You’ll feel so much better afterwards, believe us. Regarding toys they don’t play with anymore, if you’re feeling cautious about that one, start by putting it away in a closet for a week. If your toddler never asks for it, we think it’s safe to find that toy a new home!
It’s never too early for your child to learn the importance of cleaning up after themselves. Not only are you teaching them to give back and contribute to your household, but they’ll have fun acting like a “big kid”! To get started, we love this twist on the traditional magnetic chore chart by Living Well Mom.
