We organize the collection of toys!
Grandfather Frost has already managed to visit every house, give everyone presents and listen to New Year's songs. So, until your tree begins to shower abundantly on the carpet, prepare everything you need to collect New Year decorations.
You will have to stock up on paper towels, boxes, tape and stickers. If for some reason there are no boxes left, you can go to the nearest grocery store and ask for boxes of wine, champagne or liquor, which are divided into sections (for storing bottles). Attach an old Christmas card to each box with tape and stick a sticker with a description of what's inside. So in a year it will be easier to recognize what lies in the box.
|1. Choose boxes with cardboard dividers (from under the bottles) that you can shape as you need. Place 2-3 toys wrapped in napkins in each compartment. Stack those that are heavier down. Also look for other storage containers at home. This can be cardboard egg cages (they are suitable for small balls), plastic food containers or shoe boxes (for larger balls). Garlands can be wound onto a cardboard backing from used paper towels.|
|2. Christmas wreath. You need to pack it the same way you usually store evening dresses or suits. Hang a wreath on the shoulders for outerwear, put it in a large plastic bag (or an old pillowcase) and put it in a closet or closet.|
|3. Fresh idea. Use jars of coffee or baby food with plastic lids to store garlands. Cut a hole in the form of an X in the lid and place the wire plug there. Wrap the garland around the can.|
Throw away or leave?
● Leave New Year decorations: candles, wreaths
To protect the candles from dust and scratches, put on elastic socks or stockings. Then wrap each candle in a napkin so that they do not scratch each other and store in a cool, dry place. ● Make short notes about where to hang or what to combine certain decorations with. Put the note in the toy box. ● Throw away the old newspapers if you wrapped Christmas decorations in them. Ink can damage patterns on balls and toys. It is better to use white napkins, paper towels or plastic bags for storage.
Idea!If your tree is artificial and there is no suitable box for it, store it in an old gym bag. It will protect the tree from dust and will not let the branches break.
