STOCK TOYS AND SUPPLIES…

Keep a Rubbermaid container of toys, books, kids, outside toys, videos and art supplies in the garage.

Bring them out when the kids arrive.

It will be a novelty for the kids to have a basket of toys they are not used to and hopefully it will keep them away from the breakables.
