What’s on my 2 year old’s shelves

I was asked recently how often I rotate materials on my children’s shelves. I always keep favourites on their shelves and rotate materials that haven’t been used for a while. Sometimes I may just change how I have displayed a material to see if that gains interest and if not, it will just go in our storage cupboard and brought back out at another time. To give you an idea what is currently on my 2 year old’s shelves (excluding play items and art materials);

Threading large beads
