Even though laundry day is almost every day in my house, we made a special day to start teaching my kids how to help. This was like a fun game for them but more importantly it was another teaching step.
We started off with some dirty rags(to be honest it was rags they made dirty from spilling juice), we then made a soapy bin and two clean water bins. As they washed their rags in the soapy water, I showed them how our washer spins the clothes.Once they were nice and soapy it was time to rinse them in our first bin of clean water, then double check their is no more soap in the second clean water bin. (just like how our washer would refill and make sure of the same thing)
Once done we hung them up to dry on a line to dry.
Their new chore for now will put helping me fill the washer and start it.
note~this was suppose to be done outside but it was a little to chilly to have water play outside today. Our kitchen floor with a towel down worked, maybe we will revisit once its hot out again. :)
