Toys: Recycle and Reuse

Our boys grow much faster than we like. Just this morning I went through my sons closet and put away two large bags full of clothes he had outgrown. Cue the tears! But seriously, they grow a mile a minute and soon outgrow clothes, shoes, furniture, and toys. What on earth are we supposed to do with it all? Sometimes we have younger children and we can reuse those old clothes and toys. But most of the time we are at a loss. Some things we just don’t want to give up, others are perfect for donating. For the toys you just cant seem to part with, there is a solution. Incorporate them in to your decor.
