The pretend Kitchen was always a hot spot in my Daycare, and rightfully so! Who doesn't like to whip up a pretend meal?
Today our challenge is to eliminate at least 1 play food item ! If you have the time & motivation feel free to extend this challenge to your whole "Pretend Kitchen".
It may be helpful to sort your items into food groups, to see if you have duplicates.
Questions to Ask?
Is it a choke hazard?
Is it broken?
Do they play with it?
Does it have all of it's parts?
How many do they need?
Do I have another one in better condition?
What should you do with the items you are getting rid of?
Garbage: Dispose of broken, and dangerous items.
Sell: Consider listing your items on a local FB Buy Sell page this weekend.
Donate: Consider a Daycare just starting, a local preschool program, youth program or just post your items for Free on a local FB Buy/Sell Site.
If you are having a hard time letting go of your items, consider some of the following solutions to reduce the clutter:
