Dear Marianne:
My husband and I have 2 daughters ages 3 and 5. They have so many toys and it's hard for me to get rid of them because so many of them are from family and friends but it's overwhelming! I think they have too many toys-do you have any suggestions of how many toys a kid plays with in a day and how many do they really need? I don't remember having so many toys as a child-just a few favorites. Then it's hard to get them to clean up b/c I think it
overwhelms them. What do you think?
Phil and Angie, Blue Springs, MO, parents of Marlee 5 and Jaimee 3

Q&A Corner

Dear Marianne:

What is the best way to store toys outdoors?
Ken, Newport Beach, CA, Father of Josh (6), Eric (4) and Trinity (2)

 

Get an outdoor toy box! A sturdy, weather-resistent container should have its' own spot in the yard or near a door. If outdoor toys (sandbox toys, balls, sports equipment) come indoors, they are bound to track in dirt and germs. Give them their own storage space and wash the box and its' contents on a regular basis. A good rule of thumb is every time you water the grass, hose down the outdoor toys too!
