Cull the Toys???
This little boy fills my days while my other babes are soaking up information like a sponge from their teachers. While they are going through the motions of the classroom order it is pure chaos at home.
We are splattering paint, splashing in water and drumming on drums.
I am discovering my child within all this mess, he rarely ventures into his room where literally thousands of toys lay untouched, instead he is drawn to things that are simple. My boy is soothed by simplicity and I have to say I like this very much. Many hours of his today, was spent with a container, a bit of water and a bar of soap. He couldn't have been more relaxed....wow.
When the toys are overwhelmingly too much it must reduce the amount of creative flow, its almost like the child becomes stagnant. Give this child a box and play happens for hours.
*I'm rubbing my hands together wondering if I can cull his toys hehe.
