The clever hack to FINALLY stop your kids from leaving toys on the floor (it works like a charm)
Do you wake up every day under a mountain of toys?
Do you find yourself wading through teddies and stuffed animals on your way in the door, slipping on miniature tractors on the stairs and standing on some Lego in the living room?
Ouch, there's no pain like it and we have screamed more than once.
The below might look familiar...
Kids are great, but the sheer amount of stuff they amass would boggle the mind.
Repeated clear-outs don't seem to yield results and are usually met with staunch resistance so we're forever on the look-out for tidying hacks and the latest one doing the rounds is pretty good.
Behold; the toy jail.
The image, which has been liked thousands of times since it was posted last year pretty much says it all.
Simply put away any loose toys you come across in jail - i.e. a plastic storage box that can be locked.
You can hold on to them until your little ones do some chores for you.
The benefits are twofold. If you're blue in the face from telling your kids to put their stuff away, they now have a reason to do as you say.
It'll also get them to help out around the house, which certainly isn't to be sniffed at and although it might seem a little harsh to begin with, it's almost guaranteed to work.
Go on, give it a go and let us know you get on.
