Children strive on having an orderly environment that they are able to clean up on their own. Their physical environment at home should be at their height (as much as possible), have child sized furnishings, and be well organized. Ways to help your child at home is rotating toys through out the summer. You should have 8-10 toys available at a time that have a set place for them to return to and rotate every 2-3 weeks to keep the child interested.
