  • I do mine at night, if I am not too tired so I at least know it is cleaned up when I go to bed. In the morning we start all over again.

  • when you figure this out, let me know. I think it is a good idea to limit the toys they can play with at one time, an roate them this will leave less of a mess to clean up.
    also get a box of an ottomen to put the toys in after they play with them. this will make it easier to clean.
    as far as the time, I have no idea. I like to go to bed with the house clean, but it gets wrecked in the morning.
    Pick up, limit toys, and get boxes or something to put toys in after they are picked up.
