Our focus area for Today's challenge is your Storage Room or a Storage Cabinet (If you don't have a storage room). Find at least 1 item to let go!
Remind yourself the purpose of these challenges is to find items to get rid of, so don't get carried away with cleaning and organizing .
Ask you work through this area, consider these questions:
*Is it broken?
*Does it have all of it's parts?
*How often does it get played with?
*Do the kids love it?
*Is it age appropriate for my group?
*Is it durable?
*Does it align with your Toy philosophy? (For example: Are you working towards more natural, less battery operated toys?)
*Do I have multiples/something similar?
Decluttering tips for the future:
*Add a sticky note to the toy, if you use the toy remove the note. Check back in 6 months-If it still has a sticky note attached consider donating it.
