how often do you pick up your kids toys?

I pick them up when he's down for a nap, right before my hubby gets home, and at bedtime. What about y'all?

  • I pick up toys at the end of the day before bedtime but sometimes it's not that big a mess & I"ll just ignore the them in the playroom :) Some days we pick up more because we make a bigger mess.

  • 500 times a day...well feels that way......I'm actually telling them to clean them up all the time

  • Probably about 5 times a day. Lately though, she is only interested in her books, so clean up has been even easier.

  • I have my kids help me pick up their toys in the living room at the end of the day. I don't see a point in doing it throughtout the day since they'll just pull them right out again.
