What do you do with your kids outside toys when they're not playing with them?

Do you store them in big storage containers, a shed, underneath the porch, just leave them outside in the yard, etc.?

  • When the kids were younger we had a large plastic garden shed type thing that was their outside toy box. Now they don't have things like that so there's nothing to worry about. (c:

  • They are all over the yard until the weather gets really cold and the snow is on the way, then they are stored under the patio deck, and some in the shed.

  • We have a storage chest in the back yard and bigger items we just put in the garage.

  • we have no where to put them, and no room for them inside, so they are just in the yard, hopefully we will build a big garage soon, and be able to store them in there.

  • The big items stay outside like the swing set and such the bikes get put away and my daughter is old enough now not to have many other things but when she did we just put them in the shed or garage

  • Right now we store our daughter's smaller outside toys (like sidewalk chalk, kites, bubbles, bowling pins, golf clubs, balls) in a storage tote and we bring her tricycle and Cozy Coupe inside and store them in our spare room. Hopefully we get a shed soon so we can store them in there. We used to leave them outside but they just kept getting so dirty and our daughter would be so messy just from playing with them that we had to find something to do with them.
