The Amazing Screen
Don't ask me why, it must be a law of the universe of something, but my kid's toys always end up all over the living room floor. No matter that they have their own designated box. Never mind that they may have a whole room dedicated to their existence. If my children are playing, the toys must be in front of the door and all over the living room.
It is my goal that anyone coming in our home (assuming, of course, that I knew that they were coming) would be shocked that so many children and their toys inhabit the building. The carpet stains might be a clue, but we're working on that.
Introducing, the amazing screen. It was purchased by my sister at an auction and passed on to me a few years ago. I stretched fabric over the back to match our decor and placed it in a corner out of the way.
Behind ours we store: two bouncy balls, a riding tractor and car, Lego's, Lincoln Logs, a kid guitar and Kinnex.
Come to think of it, I don't want any of these things out of my sight anyway or I'd have kids tumbling down stairs and tiny toy pieces who knows where. Besides, I'd miss them running over my toes while I fix dinner.
