We have too many toys. (Don’t tell David I’ve admitted it, but I know it’s true.) I’ve been trying to be discerning with the toys I introduce, and I also have to keep a great variety of “educational” toys on hand for those “learning moments”, but some of the time they’re just a waste of space.
There are some days when all the toys in the world can’t outrank the importance of those essential toys that every household should have.
- Building blocks
- A skipping rope
- Boxes to climb into
- Books (and you can never have too many!)
- Shape sorter
- A babydoll
- A car
If you don’t have a skipping rope for your children, get one right away.
