The weather is getting nicer and warmer. The kids will be playing outside. Thier rooms are already filled with toys or the rooms are organized and clean. The Toys that get played with outside get dirty because of the elements. They can be caked with sand and dirt and maybe even have a bug or two. You don’t want them to come inside your house. Keep them outside where they belong. Yet you want to keep order outside too! You don’t want a yard filled with toys lying around.
I like the above one from toysrus.com. It has three functions: its decorative. its furniture, it’s a storage space!!!
There are various bins and baskets and cans you can get to house toys, balls, bats, etc. Even a good strong box. Put them in a spot that is easy for the kids to get to. maybe its in the garage, or on the back patio, or a corner in the yard.
