Kids, don't think of this as losing toys. Think of it as being able to see the rest of your toys!
I made some tough choices here because I've already done so much releasing - some of these are pretty cool. But I thought about whether a toy entertains either of the kids for as much as five minutes, and that helped. Some toys (like the black and yellow motorbike which really is Super) just can't compete anymore in the pile of new scooters and real bikes.
So along with Red snail, Blue snail, Yellow snail, and Green snail and other favourites, they can make some other younger children happy now.
I also threw away a magnetic drawing board that was broken but still limping along. It's quite hard for me to do that but our shelves look better already.For those who don't have children, this may seem a strange and pitiful activity to brag about. But life in our house improves with every item that is gone and not missed, and that is truly an art.
Do you discuss it with your children when toys need to go?
