The Wonder Closet

Activities at Home

Every year for Christmas little kids seems to gravitate towards one or maybe two toys while the rest sit on the sidelines. I see it happening the last couple days at our house and it reminded me of an idea my mom came up with: the wonder closet.

When we were little my mom would put toys and games up high in her closet. On rainy or boring days she would take something out… She would have us close our eyes and hold out our hands so it would be a magical surprise. Sometimes they were presents we already received but had forgotten about and sometimes they were new things that she had seen and socked away. In any case, it was so exciting to play with something new!

This year I didn’t go overboard with presents and I still have a couple extra for the wonder closet! My daughter (20 months) never even opened some of her presents because she was happy with one and my son (4) hasn’t played with some of his at all so I can save them for another day.
