Why I Rotate My Sons toys every Week and What it has Taught Me
I keep my sons toys in order by what they are. For example, his cars are in a tote, his blocks and stackable toys are in a tote, and his pretend play stuff are in a tote together. Of course he has more toys than that for the most part they all have a purpose and are put together. I look at what he has not played with in a while and rotate it every week. If I notice he has not touched a toy the whole week it has been up I might put it up sooner.
Right now my son is really into pretend play so I keep all of his pretend play toys out no matter what. He loves trying on hats, different clothing, and his backpack. I try to promote creativity throughout the day and open ended play.
