My tip for the week on making your household run a bit smoother is an idea my amazing husband figured out a few years ago: making zones in your house for your kids. This will greatly improve toy clutter and the unfortunate event of stepping on a Lego in the middle of the night! It also aids in making your home more organized. You explain it to your kids using a
traffic light as an example. You can be as creative as you want by drawing a big traffic light sign as example, etc.
Green Zones = they can have their toys in these areas and play freely (usually their rooms and playrooms)
Yellow Zones = they can be in this area BUT with no toys (usually the kitchen, family room, dining room)
Red Zones = they cannot be in this area (usually master bathroom, bedroom, office)
Let me know how this works for you!
