When our third child was born, we decided to remove the television from our home. Saturday morning cartoons had become a cherished tradition at that point, however.
To fill the absence, we created the “Saturday Box,” which we stocked with toys the kids hadn’t seen or played with before. We simply held back extra gift toys and collected freebies to add to the Saturday Box. The box works great — the kids are delighted and play happily, and because we only get the box out for a few hours each Saturday, the toys never lose their novelty.
