Does your toddler like to pick up their toys or would they rather scatter them around the room and leave them there?

Natalie sometimes helps pick up her toys, but most of the time she just leaves them all over the place and I have to pick them up.

Seamus doesn't know how to pick up toys yet, maybe in another year. So he prefers to make a mess

Carson prefers to make a mess, if I get down and help him pick them up, then he'll help, but otherwise he just leaves everything laying around.

He loves to clean up when he's in the mood...otherwise, I end up cleaning it up most of the time.

Gracie doesnt have alot of toys in her room, but when she brings them in from the living room yes she scatters them around.

She also loves to take all her clothes out of her drawers...bugs me though lol.

Right now scatter and leave. But he is still too young to pick up. He is starting to learn though. We'll tell him to pick up your toys and put in your toy basket. He'll do that, then turn around and drag them back out again.

Connor loves to pick up his toys and has been doing so for several months. He won't go to bed 'til he's picked up all his toys!

Connor used to scatter them and leave them, so I fixed that by buying a large tub with a snap on lid, that he cannot get into!
I pull out three or four toys, and when he gets bored, I put those back and give him something else.

I hated picking up scattered toys!

She is more of a scatterer, but if she see's me picking up toys, she will try to help

Paige does not know how to pickup yet so I have to go behind her and pick up all of her toys.

Brady will help clean up willingly...Nathan will, with some prodding....of course at the sitters, Nathan is the biggest helper!

Sean loves to make a mess, but he enjoys helping to pick them up when I ask him to. But he won't pick up without being asked.
