Today Katie from Clarks Condensed is sharing with us how to make this convenient play mat/ toy storage bag for her kids toys!
Do you have lots of toys or legos laying around? They sure can be a pain to pick up and put away. However, with this DIY Toy or Lego Bag and play mat, clean up is a lot easier. The bag cinches up into a great toy storage container, and it holds a lot of toys. This project is easy and is perfect for gifts!
I always used to say we wouldn’t have a lot of toys for Jack. And until recently, I didn’t think we did! But then I started looking around, and I realized that we have slowly accumulated a lot over the past two years…and I kind of feel like we live in a small toy shop. I keep telling Forrest that we can just wrap up old toys that Jack outgrows for other kids we may have, just so we don’t become overrun with toys. He thought that was a great idea…Check back with me in a few years to see how that turns out!
Most of the toys we own aren’t big — just lots of smaller toys. These small toys are perfect for Jack’s latest favorite game – throw all the toys out from behind the couch and then do nothing with them. Jack is excellent at throwing small objects. Needless to say, we’ve been trying to teach Jack how to clean up after himself lately (and thankfully, have had success. I was checking on him in nursery in church on Sunday, and my heart just beamed as I saw him put away a toy without being asked…ah, the simple joys in life.)
I wanted to come up with a way for us to quickly put away all of our smaller toys, as well as store them.
