Less toys, happier kids?
The world wants kids to know that toys will make them happy.
However, as a mom, I can’t say that is how I want to raise my kids. Just think of how much happier you are when you don’t have clutter and a mess to deal with. Kids feel the same way!
When they are overwhelmed with toys and clutter, it can truly affect their mood and how they feel on a daily basis.

My kids are much happier with having less toys and here’s why:
My kids feel less stressed when they don’t have to clean up so many toys. They are much happier because their toys don’t take long at all to clean up. It is also freeing for me because I don’t want to spend all day cleaning.
LESS TO SORT THROUGH
When my kids are playing, having less toys makes it easier to sort through. They can find what they like and then play with what they actually want to! It’s nice to simply walk into their room and find them playing with a few toys rather than having a ton that they can’t even sort through.
KIDS ARE MORE CREATIVE
Something I’ve noticed since my kids have fewer toys to play with is that they are more creative. They have more of a chance to use their imagination.
Toys tend to do most of the work for kids, so it’s nice when I see my kids making something or being creative with what they have found.
THEY TAKE BETTER CARE OF THEIR TOYS
When kids don’t have a lot of toys to sift through, they are more likely to take care of what they have. Our family also spends money on toys that will last longer rather on toys that will break in just a few minutes.
