I’ve been wondering, maybe the reason why Lucas doesn’t play with many toys is because I have them in all in a relatively large basket. Don’t they say something somewhere that children need their toys to be visual and in separate categories so they can choose which toys they want to play with and have access to?
Upstairs he plays with his toys and books, as they are scattered across the floor in his playroom and displayed on our rain gutter bookshelves. Downstairs, however, I keep his things (books included) in a basket and he very rarely digs into it. Maybe he doesn’t know it’s there? I suppose too, that the choices could be too overwhelming?
I’ve been looking for a small bookshelf for months. I want his books to have a spot downstairs and we also just need a space to store all of them that we have. (We have tons in storage because there is no room for them and I hate that!)
We don’t have an IKEA here, so I will probably get something from Target or Amazon if the shipping is reasonable.
This sling bookshelf from Target is sort of nice (I love the natural color), but I would love to have spot that holds books and toys if possible.
What do you do?? We really don’t need a big storage space as most of this things are upstairs, but I would like to find something different. And if I can’t find something I like for the toys, I at least want to find a storage solution for his books. Thoughts, ideas, links?! Thank you and love!
(I’ve never done this before, but I think I’m suppose to let you know… if you click on those links and buy something from Amazon or get a swagbucks account under my name, I get some credit from it. It’s not much – like really, a few cents I think- but if I can make any money from blogging I’m totally going to try. It’s called amazon affiliates if you want to try it too! I don’t even know if it will be worth it, but I figure if I’m going to talk about something I might as well leave a link. And, to be honest, I do feel a little weird doing it. But I know tons of bloggers do it and as long as I stay true to my blog and don’t start linking and talking about something like crazy just to try to make money, then I’m okay with it. I don’t know why I just told you all that….. over n’ out peeps.)
