  • Playtime with Blind and visually impaired children

    Blind children are vulnerable to having their play restricted, but in many ways, they need it more than sighted children. It helps improve their curiosity and independence, as well as contributing to personality development.
    In this infographic, we look at some ideas for play with blind children. It includes some handy tips on how to have inclusive playtime with children of all abilities. We also look at how you can adapt toys to be more user friendly for a visually impaired child.

    There are creative ways to get your kids involved in arts and crafts too and fun activities that will help them learn how to play and develop their sensory skills.

  • Storage Ideas for Toys

    Sure, you could go and buy some boxes, but the cardboard ones wont withstand those heavier toys and the plastic ones might look a bit out of place. Youll also probably have to stack them on top of each other which doesnt make for easy reaching for the kids. Some wooden toys might tolerate a bit of squashing but the plastic toys might break under the weight of stacking.

    So, what to do? How to make the toys disappear without really disappearing?

    Ultimately, you want things to be tidy and easy to tidy, without looking out of place or being a danger to your children. Its their bedroom or playroom, not a loft.

    Yes, its possible to have a clean house AND have kids with toys. In fact, its more than possible. Its an exciting stroke of genius at how easily this can be achieved. Take a look at the infographic below for some fantastic ideas on how to bring order to the chaos and store your childrens toys with style.
