I’m a mum-of-four and my easy Rotation technique is a total lifesaver, it means the kids never get bored | The Sun

EVERY parent will have heard those dreaded words: "Mum I'm bored."

Sound familiar? Well, one savvy mum-of-four has taken to TikTok to share her very clever hack to ensure that those words won't be echoes around the four walls in your house again.


Lauren, who is from the US and posts under the acronym @lauren.clutter, shared a short video to social media where she asks: "Does it seem like your kids have a million toys but they're always telling you they're bored?

"Then I have the best mum hack for you."

Lauren goes on to note how it's called a 'toy rotation' and proceeds to explain: "We have our kid's toys split into three different toy rotations so that once a month I will rotate out the toys so they don't see the same rotation again for another couple of months.

"So when I do that I just put all of the old toys that were out on the rotation away, throw away any rubbish I finish and then I put all of the new toys out on the shelf."
