I have been finding myself increasingly irritated by the sheer amount of toys lying around the house. Now, I know all you seasoned mammas are just shaking your heads and telling me to get used to it, but let’s face it: Ameli is only three months old! So getting all our boxes ready for the recycling bin, I had an idea.
When Ameli was born, one of the myriad gifts she received was a bunny teddy (bear) from the Build a Bear Workshop. It came housed in an uber cute box and its very own birth certificate. (Honestly, the gimmicks that we fall for!)
The box has a front door, including a slot for the post, and windows above the door, and in the walls on either side. The windows have (painted on) flower boxes, drain pipes, a reclining chair and a beehive and comes complete with a tiled slanted roof.
I decided to cut up a plastic Christmas decoration box that was going in the bin to fill in the â€˜windows’ on the box, and use the box for all the soft toys lying around the house.
At least now when Ameli goes to bed I can just pop the toys in the box, and have a soft toy free evening, and start the day in a fresh and tidy room.
