Do you have a laundry basket full of clothes? If so, grab your toddler or young child’s hand and take them into the laundry room with you. Did you know that you can teach your children how to help with the laundry? Most children are eager and willing to help their parents with new things. Have your child take the sorted laundry from the laundry basket and they can help put it into the washing machine (even a top loading one) or dryer. I wanted to share with you another idea that I came up with on Friday afternoon while my youngest was helping me get a load of laundry into the washing machine. Parents, I came up with another great idea for you to use to get your toddler or younger child to help get the laundry done.
This is an idea that I personally came up with and I would appreciate it if you give me proper credit if you use or re-blog this post.
Learn How to Get Your Child to Help Put Clothes Into the Washing Machine
My youngest is a huge sports fan so I knew that I would capture his attention if I asked him if he wanted to play a game of basketball. He replied, “sure” and came running into the laundry room. I asked him to reach into the laundry basket and grab one item. Then I told him to toss it into the washing machine. He did a great job but occasionally he would miss or need my help making a basket. I would grab the miss guided item out of the air and toss it into the washing machine. My son thought this was so much fun and was excited to help me get the laundry done.
