While I was tackling the laundry this afternoon, Emily did some of her own. Somehow her laundry was a lot more fun than mine! Special thanks to Elise of Inspiration Surrounds… Creativity Abounds for reminding me of this fabulous activity. When I was a little girl, our family gave my cousin a play laundry set much like this one, and she absolutely loved it! Emily also enjoyed hers very much!
Laundry Day Fun!
August 20, 2009 by
We gathered items we already had around the house: some buckets, clothes pins, a few yards of laundry line, a tiny version of a laundry basket, and a box of play laundry soap made from an empty Jell-O box. I sewed a small drawstring bag to keep the line, pins, and play laundry soap in. I stamped the words “wash day” on it using a fabric-safe ink pad. We used bubble bath instead of laundry detergent, and it worked very well!
