It always starts out the same. Littles happily playing together creating a glorious pile of toys (and in our house a few baby dolls). When all of a sudden they instantaneously change their mind and realize they would rather be playing with blocks. So they ditch the dolls and toys and then it happens…the giant box of blocks is dumped across the living room floor. The sound of blocks hitting the floor can be cringe inducing. Not only do they produce a challenging obstacle course across our living room, they end up under the couch, under the radiator and literally everywhere else.
Have no fear! While our house is far from immaculate when it comes to cleanliness, we have gotten ourselves into a nice little routine that seems to do the trick.
