Organising an Awesome Family Christmas Part 7
To-Do Jobs Around the Home
- It’s time to clean and organise the playroom / living room. Skip the toy box – Sure, that toy box might sound like a good idea, but in reality, toy boxes are a guaranteed way for kids not to play with all their toys. Worse yet, they’ll make a huge mess to play with one specific toy. They are just a dumping ground, usually full of broken bits and lost pieces — and the child will dump out the whole collection to find something. Instead of the typical toy box, invest in some clear bins to sort toys.
- Organise your entertainment department. You’ll make it easier to find Christmas music and movies as the season progresses.
