Learn How to Make Moving the Clothes From the Washer to the Dryer Fun
When it came time to move the laundry from the washer to the dryer, I asked him if he was ready to play a game of baseball or football. He replied, “sure” and again he eagerly came running into the laundry room. I would take an item out of the washing machine and hand it to him. Then I asked him to throw it into the dryer. He did a great job with this task and had fun helping me. We kept playing baseball with the laundry until we were completely finished. However, if an item was too heavy or large (ie a towel or jeans), I would put it into the dryer for him.
Find an Alternative Way to Make Getting the Laundry Done Fun
If you child doesn’t like sports, find another game or a way to get your child to help you with the laundry. I love turning ordinary things into an educational or learning experiences. I hope that you decide to implement this idea and get your toddler or younger child to help you with the household chores. A few weeks ago, I shared with you how to turn laundry into a learning opportunity. As a parent, I have always asked my own children to help with the chores. Most children love helping and enjoy learning new skills. I have never asked them to do anything that they couldn’t handle or do on their own. I always assign them with chores or tasks based upon their ability and their age.
