One Toy at a Time, Please!

To avoid the need to constantly be cleaning the play room, and to help your child learn to focus and to practice concentration, institute a one-toy-at-a-time rule. If he dumps out a bin of blocks and half-builds a house before wandering off to color, gently remind him to either finish or clean up the blocks first.
