Well, this week I am trying a new strategy. I have gone through all of their toys, big and small, and I have divided them into two boxes…one box is full of all the broken, parts-missing toys, and the other box is all the toys that they don’t play with anymore or are too young for them now. I am going to throw out the box of broken toys and let THEM donate the box of old toys. By letting them donate the toys themselves they will understand that they are gone. I am going to give them a certificate of appreciation for giving their toys to children who might not get anything for Christmas. We are going to talk about the fact that there are kids out there who are not going to have any gifts to open this year and that by giving them some of their old toys it will do two things...1) make room for the toys they are getting from Santa… 2) make some other children very happy on Christmas morning.
Is anyone else getting rid of old toys before the holiday’s this year?
