How many times do your kids come up to you and say, “Mom my _________ is ripped/broken!” Before I had my amazing Fix-It box, I would say okay, and set the item on the counter, cluttering up my space, until I finally got around to fixing the item. But the Fix-It box has changed all that!
Why I love it:
- It’s so simple. You just throw it in the box, without having to worry about it.
- It’s faster. You don’t have to get out the needle and thread 10 times, or go dig out the superglue AGAIN.
- It makes the old new again. Having the kids wait for their items makes them exciting again, because they haven’t seen them in a while.
- It teaches them respect. Making them wait also makes them a little more careful with their toys, because they know if it gets broken it will be gone for a while.
Good luck, and I hope this idea helps a little bit with some of the more annoying parts of parenting!
