This month I am taking you on a tour of my favorite organizing solutions. They aren’t likely to hot on Pinterest or featured on a crafty blog, but they make life around here run more smoothly.
I keep the books I use with my 3-year-old and 5-year-old together in a bin, so I can grab them when the stars align and we can take 30 minutes on the couch together.
That’s it. Nothing fancy. Nothing special. Reading the books in our bin, plus a picture book of the children’s choice is our preschool/kindergarten school time, apart from Circle Time and math time and as much open-ended play as I can encourage, preferably out of doors.
- Type of container: Sterilite bin
